Abstract

In car radio receivers and photodetector systems such as fiber optical receivers and spectroscopy systems, the electrical signals to be processed are obtained by signal conversion from a capacitive source. In the first case, it is the capacitive antenna while in the second case it can be a photo sensitive diode. The network equivalent of such sources can be represented by a current signal source in parallel with or by a voltage signal source in series with a capacitor. Since the converted signals can be very small, a low-noise preamplifier is necessary to amplify the signals to high level for further processing.
