Abstract : A novel bridge type optoelectronic (OE) sample and hold circuit based upon current steering demonstrates a clear superiority in performance with respect to a direct OE sample and hold circuit. The bridge type OE sample and hold circuit permits a high-speed signal to be sampled with high accuracy to offer high charging capability, commanding signal isolation, reduced time jitter and reduced holding charge leakage which are distinct advantages over conventional electronic sample and hold circuits.
