A sample-and-hold amplifier designed for the front end of high-speed low-power analog-to-digital converters employs a BiCMOS sampling switch and a low-voltage amplifier to achieve a sampling rate of 200 MHz while allowing input/output voltage swings of 1.5 V with a 3-V supply. The circuit also incorporates a cancellation technique to relax the trade-off between the hold-mode feedthrough and the sampling speed. Fabricated in a 20-GHz 1-μm BiCMOS technology, an experimental prototype exhibits a harmonic distortion of -65 dB with a 10-MHz analog input and occupies an area of 220×150 μm2. The measured feedthrough is -52 dB for a 50-MHz analog input and the droop rate is 40 μV/ns
