Depending on the technology used, the deep n-well/p-substrate junction can sustain a reverse bias of up to 120 V. Depending on substrate resistivity, a depleted zone in the range of 15–100 μm can be induced around the n-well. The signals generated in the depleted zone are collected by drift. The HVCMOS detector is based on two main ideas. The first idea is to use the deep n-well as the signal collection region and the depleted p-substrate/n-well junction as the sensor. The second idea is to implement the entire pixel electronics with both PMOS and NMOS transistors inside the deep n-well.

The amplifier is biased with a relatively small current (9 μA). 13 by the letters a, b, c, and d) is capacitively coupled to the n-well and can be a source of unwanted crosstalk. P+ diffusions a and c are shorted to the positive supply and represent solely an additional detector capacitance. The same holds for P+ diffusion b, which is kept by the action of cascode transistor Mc at a nearly constant potential. The P+ diffusion d is the output of the amplifier, and the signals on this node are capacitively coupled to the n-well (sensor).

2 [29]. 3. 3. 3. The level-shifting stage was added as the DC bias level of the signal that is provided to the shaper to be controlled and the general dynamic range and 1-dB compression point of the filter that is to be optimized. 7 20/1 5/5 poles and to isolate the Cf from the following stage. The bias current Ibias was selected to be 10 μΑ. 65 V, and the reset device bias voltage is fixed to 150 mV. 18 V [29]. 11. An inherent drawback of the Leapfrog methodology and consequently of the particular shaper architecture is that the Leapfrog design method provides a gain value of 1/2 [33,34].
