This paper proposes a tail current source dividing technique for increasing precision of a track-and-hold circuit without reducing the sample speed. The proposed technique is based on division of a tail current source into two current sources during a hold period to reduce signal errors caused by parasitic capacitance coupling between the input and output terminals. With the proposed technique, a SFDR of 62 dB for 25 MHz, 1 Vp-p input signal at 200 MS/s is achieved with 0.35 μm CMOS parameters by HSPICE simulation.
