Abstract
The design of the interface electronics for an Avalanche Photodiode (APD) array is discussed in the context of an Acousto-Optic spectrum analyzer. The attainable performance includes a Noise Effective Power on the order of E-14 W/(H sub z)square, an optical dynamic range of 40-45 dB and a bandwidth of 3 MHz.
