Abstract

We examine the effects of nonlinear diode junction capacitance on the fundamental premise of the noise-to-nose calibration, that the kickout is identical in shape to the impulse response of the sampler. We offer a physical explanation for the error introduced by the nonlinear junction capacitance in terms of small-signal diode equations.
