Nose-to-Nose Response of a 20-GHz Sampling Circuit



Dylan F. Williams, Catherine A. Remley, Donald C. DeGroot


We use SPICE simulations to determine a response function of a two-diode 20-GHz sampling circuit. We explore the validity of the SPICE simulations in a variety of operational conditions and examine differences between the actual response of an impedance-matched sampling circuit and the response function reconstructed by the nose-to-nose calibration procedure.
