Paper Abstract

A novel bridge type optoelectric (OE) sample and hold circuit based upon current steering is proposed for the first time and is experimentally tested. Experimental comparison between this circuit and the conventional direct OE sample and hold circuit shows that the bridge type is clearly superior in performance to the direct OE circuit. When a high speed signal is sampled with high accuracy, the bridge type OE sample and hold circuit offers high charging capability, commanding signal isolation, and reduced time jitter, distinct advantages over electronic sample and hold circuits.
