Paper Abstract

In LADAR system, photoelectric detecting circuit is the key part in photoelectric conversion, which determines speed of respond, sensitivity and fidelity of the system. This paper presents the design of a matched APD Photoelectric detecting circuit. The circuit accomplishes low-noise readout and high-gain amplification of the weak photoelectric signal. The main performances, especially noise and transient response of the circuit are analyzed. In order to obtain large bandwidth, decompensated operational amplifiers are applied. Circuit simulations allow the architecture validation and the global performances to be predicted. The simulation results show that the gain of the detecting circuit is 630kΩ while the bandwidth is 100MHz, and 28dB dynamic range is achieved. Furthermore, the variation of the output pulse width is less than 0.9ns.
