Abstract: This paper presents an analytical model of a quasi-linear delay element to be used in the High Momentum Particle Identification Detector (HMPID) at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The aim of this model is to facilitate the design of a delay element in order to achieve the required range while maximizing linearity. In addition, a technique is proposed to further increase the delay range by means of a programmable banked capacitor architecture without sacrificing linearity. The design of a rail-to-rail quasi-linear delay element with a range spanning from 125 ns to 580 ns was achieved. The proposed model was verified via simulations performed in Cadence using the X-FAB 0.18 μm technology.
