Patent Number: 7,042,295

Title: Low-voltage, low-power transimpedance amplifier architecture

Abstract: Circuits for converting an input current to an output voltage that employs a uniquely biased common-gate or common-base stage as a current buffer and a direct drive of the current buffer output into an impedance to convert the current signal to a voltage signal.
