Abstract

Differential signals are commonly used in inte- grated circuits, but most external signals to an IC are in a single ended form. Several active circuit techniques have been devised to convert signals between differential and single-ended modes, but their gain and linearity performance degrades at higher frequencies. This paper describes a new circuit which converts differential signals to single- ended signals at high frequencies with very little distortion.
