Paper Abstract

Experience gained in computer-aided design of an arsenic doped silicon detector-JFET preamplifier having switched feedback resistors operated at 12°K is reported. In order to reduce the time involved in the designer-computer iterative loop it was found advantageous to utilize more than one computer-aided approach. Both a large general-purpose simulator (SPICE) for assessing the effects of adding parasitic elements and smaller dedicated computers with software restricted to special cases were found to be useful.
