Simulation in LTSpice is distorted for suggested design from the datasheet Fig 68

Followed the design from Figure 68 of the datasheet to simulate the circuit in LTSpice. The design is included.
It should work from 735uA (5mV output) to about 70mA (4.76V output). The input is a sinusoidal wave of 1kHz, and TIA is powered from ±5VDC.
At lower input current, the output holds as expected; however, as the input current increases, the output is severely distorted. Furthermore, the output does not swing past +4V.
What might be causing this issue in this design, and how to correct the mistakes.
I followed the suggestions from the datasheet but cannot get it to work.

  • Hi,

    I tried to run your circuit based on figure 68 of the data sheet.
    I replaced the C1 to 33nF from 33pF basing from the response on figure 69 for the effect of snubber circuit.
    Also, I have used discrete current source instead.

    The circuit able to respond for the input range you have mentioned (735uA to 70mA) but is obviously having convergence issue as the response is too slow.

    We will check the model and provide update.

    Thanks and regards!
