Design of piezoelectric preamplifier
I need help in designing a preamplifier for piezoelectric sensor. Capacitace is around 1000 pF and resistance is 1 Gohm .
Try a charge amplifier.

Thanks for your attention. But can u help me with which op amp to go for and also some practical circuit models.
There are some other posts on the forum already dedicated to design with charge amplifiers. Perhaps you could search through some of the old posts for some design tips. Below is a presentation from one of the other posts by one of our Senior Applications Engineers, Thomas Kuehl.
Also if you download the TINA simulation software, Neil has created a pretty complete library of example circuits including one or more charge amplifier designs.
