This paper presents a 20-Gs/s track-and-hold amplifier (THA) fabricated InP HBT technology. This THA is capable of operating under relatively high input voltages. The THA uses a fully differential architecture with a switched emitter-follower. To mitigate the pedestal error due to the feedthrough attenuation network, we added degeneration resistors in the feedthrough attenuation block. Measured total harmonic distortion is below -40 dB at low input frequencies, and -18 dB at frequency of 9.9 GHz.
