Baseline voltage holding structure and pulse shaper
Technical field
The invention belongs to the reading out structure of radiation detecting system reading circuit and reading method technical field.
Background technology
Radiation detecting system has a wide range of applications in fields such as high-energy physics, military affairs, industrial or agricultural, medical science, astronomy.Radiation The core component of detection system includes radiation detector and reading circuit.The effect of radiation detector is to realize amount of radiation to electric charge The conversion of amount, the effect of reading circuit is the processing and reading that complete charge pulse signal.Reading circuit is to radiation detecting system Performance have a major impact.In recent years, with the development of CMOS technology, extensive CMOS radiation detectors reading circuit into For main flow.
One typical radiation detector reading circuit includes charge amplifier (Charge Sensitive Amplifier, abbreviation CSA), pulse shaper (Pulse Shaper), several parts, circuit knot such as discriminator and output buffer Structure is as shown in Figure 1.Charge amplifier is the interface of radiation detector and reading circuit, completes the reception of charge pulse signal With integration etc. function.Pulse shaper is generally a bandpass filter, completes the noise reduction to prime output pulse signal and shaping. Discriminator can use hysteresis loop comparator, to reduce the influence of noise jamming, complete between pulse signals and threshold voltage vt h Compare, comparative result feeding counter is counted, exported.
Charge amplifier typically uses the integrator of capacitance negative feedback type, the integrator of the form can avoid because Detector electric capacity is different and influence that produced to charge signal gain amplifier.It is to avoid charge amplifier output end from satisfying simultaneously With circuit realizes the charge discharging resisting of continuous time using negative feedback resistor.The transfer function of charge amplifier can be represented For:
Wherein CfFor negative-feedback electric capacity, RfFor negative feedback resistor, QinInput charge total amount.
Pulse shaper employs CR-RC2Structure, is realized while noise reduction and shaping is completed to prime output signal The further amplification of signal.Due to the possible very little of charge pulse semaphore that radiation detector is produced, reading circuit needs to realize Larger gain, this fractionated gain is mainly realized by pulse shaper.Directly using the reshaper of AC coupled form defeated Overshoot can be produced by going out end, and output overshoot needs longer turnaround time, has a strong impact on the counting rate of detection system.Using the phase of pole zero The reshaper for the structure that disappears then can avoid output from overshooting by eliminating limit, improve the counting rate of detection system.The phase of pole zero Electric eliminating line structure is as shown in Fig. 2 set RfCf=RpzCdif, allow zero point and Charge sensitive amplifier that pulse shaper is produced The limit cancellation of device, wherein RpzAnd CdifThe respectively resistance capacitance of pole-zero cancellation module.
Resistance RpzPresence make it that whole main signal path has a DC channel, mismatch and useful signal present in circuit Amplified step by step together, it is final to cause output stage baseline voltage to produce larger drift.Mismatch in circuit is a random value, What baseline voltage drift value was played a major role is the input mismatch of charge amplifier and the mismatch of pole-zero cancellation circuit.Together When, mismatch present in circuit changes also as the change of environment temperature.Therefore, baseline voltage drift value be one it is random and With the magnitude of voltage of variation of ambient temperature, it is difficult to compensate to reduce base to circuit by fixed a voltage or electric current Line voltage drift value.
The content of the invention
(baseline holder) structure is kept the invention provides a kind of new baseline voltage, the structure is in pulse Reshaper is internally formed local negative feedback loop, it is therefore an objective to by baseline electricity on the premise of not increasing power consumption and not sacrificing signal to noise ratio Pressure is stable in a fixed reference potential value.
The technical scheme is that the difference of the baseline voltage of output signal and reference voltage is converted into current value, and Further amplified and feed back to front stage circuits formation feedback loop, it is defeated because feedback loop realizes larger gain The baseline voltage for going out signal is subsequently fixed at reference voltage level.Feedback loop is as secondary ring, to suppress baseline electricity The drift of pressure, should ensure that it does not produce influence, therefore increase switch in the feedback loop to useful signal, main signal path is to having Effect input signal disconnects feedback control loop when responding.For main signal path, reshaper realizes larger gain, therefore electric charge Sense amplifier is more sensitive for noise, considers from noise point, and Current Negative Three-Point Capacitance is not fed back to charge amplifier Input, but feed back to reshaper intermediate node.Baseline voltage keeps the circuit structure of module as shown in figure 3, baseline is kept Module forms a local negative feedback loop in reshaper so that have base using the pulse shaper of dc-couple structure The characteristic that line is kept.The structure mainly includes the two-way low pass current mirror of a transconductance structure and a belt switch structure, structure Very simple, it is easy to accomplish low-power consumption, the design requirement of low noise.
Operational amplifier OTA and resistance RTThe transconductance structure of composition realizes voltage to the conversion of electric current.Operational amplifier OTA positive input terminal is reference voltage Vref, therefore OTA negative input end magnitude of voltage is also clamped at reference voltage Vref, i.e., it is electric Hinder RTBoth end voltage value is respectively reshaper output voltage VoutWith reference voltage Vref, voltage difference is with flowing through resistance RTElectric current It is directly proportional.
Switch and controlled by useful signal in main signal path in feedback control loop, useful signal by when, discriminator makes phase Should, a burst pulse is produced, the hopping edge of the burst pulse produces one to trigger an impulse generator, the impulse generator Width is fixed as τ pulse to control the switch in feedback control loop, and pulse width τ is determined by useful signal time constant.
In main signal path without useful signal by when, reshaper output voltage values VoutFor baseline voltage, now at switch In closure state, one end of bidirectional current mirror is in the conduction state.When exporting baseline voltage less than reference voltage, PMOS The low pass current mirror of Mp1, Mp2 and electric capacity C1 compositions is in the conduction state, and NMOS tube current mirror is closed, before feeding back to The feedback current of level is represented by:
Wherein ωp≈gml/ Cl, gmlFor metal-oxide-semiconductor Mp1 transconductance value, N is current mirror multiplication factor.
Flow through Mp1 current value be equal to flow through resistance RTElectric current, Mp2 realize electric current N times amplify, and electric capacity C1 is then limited The bandwidth of current mirror is made.Work as ωpMuch smaller than reshaper time constant when, the bandwidth of current mirror is much smaller than main signal path Working frequency, on the one hand ensure that the noise that feedback control loop is introduced is minimum, on the other hand ensure that the stability of feedback control loop.When When exporting baseline voltage higher than reference voltage, pmos current mirror is closed, NMOS tube Mn1, Mn2 and electric capacity C2 compositions Low pass current mirror it is in the conduction state.
When keeping module without baseline, baseline voltage drift value is Δ Vout, increase baseline and keep after module, baseline voltage drift Shifting value is Δ VOut, closed, both sides relation is represented by:
Wherein AopenFor main signal path open-loop gain, β is feedback factor, VosFor operational amplifier OTA input mismatch electricity Pressure, loop gain β AopenIt is represented by:
Wherein τ0=RshCshFor pulse shaper time constant, RshAnd CshRespectively feedback resistance electric capacity.According to above-mentioned table It can be drawn the following conclusions up to formula:Loop low-frequency gain is bigger, and baseline voltage drift value is smaller;ωpSmaller, loop bandwidth is narrower, Work as ωpMuch smaller than τ0When, loop can regard first order pole structure as, it is ensured that loop stability, while the noise for feeding back to prime is got over It is small.
When main signal path have useful signal by when, reshaper output voltage values VoutContain the sound to input signal Should, now switch is off.Mp1 (or Mn1) current values are flowed through still equal to flowing through resistance RTElectric current;Switch off, Electric capacity Cl and C2 is without charge and discharge electric pathway, and voltage maintained switch disconnects previous transient voltage value, therefore flows through Mp2 and Mn2 feedback Current value is all to switch off the current value that previous moment flows through metal-oxide-semiconductor.Because baseline drift value is generally not in transition, instead Supply current can still be used for suppresses the drift of baseline.Baseline keeps the switch controlling signal of module to there may be delay, and part is effectively Signal enters feedback control loop, and because feedback control loop very bandwidth is narrow, useful signal is cut in the loop, further ensures baseline The stability of voltage.

The present invention is described in detail below by embodiment.
The quantity of electric charge that radiation detector reading circuit is received is usually very faint, and this requires pulse shaper is realized larger The multiplication factor that the reading circuit being directed in the gain of multiple, design verification is realized is at 40 times or so.Charge amplifier Mismatch is inputted generally in several millivolts of magnitudes, while in view of the mismatch of the mismatch of resistance capacitance in circuit, and pulse shaper, Final baseline voltage drift value is reachable more than 100 millivolts.Flow survey has been carried out to the circuit structure that module is kept without baseline Examination, multiple lane testing results show that baseline drift value is random quantity, and maximum drift value can reach ± 150mV.Randomly select one Individual passage carries out temperature test, and the relation of baseline voltage value (baseline) and environment temperature is as shown in figure 4, reference voltage is 1.6V。
In order to suppress baseline drift, increase the new baseline holding structure shown in Fig. 3 in circuit structure.Increase the module The original performance of sacrifice circuit must be unable to while baseline drift is effectively suppressed, mainly includes the power consumption and noise of circuit Than.In power consumption, it is operational amplifier OTA that baseline, which keeps module main consumable module, OTA only require high-gain should not bandwidth, Low power dissipation design can be realized, OTA current drain is less than 1 μ A in the present embodiment.On noise, electric capacity C1 and C2 is very big Limit loop bandwidth, it is desirable to loop bandwidth must be much smaller than the working frequency of main signal path, make an uproar caused by feedback control loop Sound is negligible compared to main signal path, and the electric capacity for being used for limiting bandwidth in the present embodiment is nanofarad magnitude.
The feedback loop for keeping module composition to baseline has carried out loop stability emulation, and loop low-frequency gain is 40dB, unity gain bandwidth is 240Hz, and 40dB low-frequency gain causes the baseline drift value that mismatch is caused to reduce 99%.It is right Circuit carries out time-domain-simulation and noiseproof feature emulation, and simulation result is illustrated in fig. 5 shown below, and compared for reading circuit whether there is baseline in figure Keep the output response of module.Reference voltage is set to 1.6V, --- it is output response when module is kept without baseline, due to losing Match somebody with somebody, output baseline voltage drift value is about 125mV, --- output response during module, output baseline electricity are kept for increase baseline Pressure recovers reference voltage, effectively inhibits baseline drift, and switch controlling signal pulse width is 7.25 μ S, and about useful signal is wide Degree, that is, ensure that useful signal will not enter feedback control loop, while not influenceing the counting rate of reading circuit again.Fig. 5 simulation results Influence comprising noise, as a result shows that increase baseline keeps almost identical when output noise is with without baseline holding module after module.
As can be seen that baseline holding structure proposed by the present invention can effectively inhibit reading circuit base in from the above The drift of line voltage, while having low-power consumption, the characteristic of low noise, does not produce influence to circuit performance itself.
It is finally noted that, the purpose for publicizing and implementing example is that help further understands the present invention, but this area Technical staff be appreciated that:Without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention and the appended claims, it is various to replace and repair It is all possible for changing.Therefore, the present invention should not be limited to embodiment disclosure of that, and the scope of protection of present invention is to weigh The scope that sharp claim is defined is defined.
