From a few tries using the ADS circuit simulator, the capacitance [C.sub.4] originally connected to the ground is now parallel to [C.sub.1] and connects to a shunt circuit block placed before [C.sub.1] in the LC circuit model as shown in Figure 11.
The shunt circuit consisting of [C.sub.5], [L.sub.5a] and [L.sub.5b] in Figure 11 can be realized by an added patch with its two z-directed edges short-circuited to the bilateral walls.
The OPA454 also has a low bias current of [+ or -]110 pA that allows accurate measurements from high impedance sources or sensitive current shunt circuits. Additional features include a fast-acting enable/disable pin referenced to the common pin, which can be ground.
