Abstract : The patent describes a ramp/hold circuit (pulse width to pulse amplitude converter) having a constant current source driving a differential amplifier, and a current steering means for diverting the current source output from one side to the other of the amplifier. The input pulse determines the charge on a storage capacitor, which capacitor provides the circuit output. A discharge path for the capacitor is not provided until a gate signal is applied to a gating circuit.
