This paper develops a new reconstruction technique of undesirable signal distortion generated by sensor electronic circuits. The introduced reconstruction technique is originally realized with unfamiliar low-pass negative group delay (NGD) function. The feasibility condition of the proposed reconstruction technique in function of the sensor signal spectrum bandwidth under consideration is elaborated. The reconstruction technique principle is theoretically introduced by means of identification

As an example, for the feasibility study, an RC-network based low-pass active cell is considered to implement the low-pass NGD function. A design method of NGD circuit in function of the sensor distortion transfer function is described in different successive steps. The developed NGD reconstruction technique is validated by different proofs of concept. First, transient simulations are carried out with Gaussian and sinc analytical signals. Then, experimental feasibility study is also performed with arbitrary waveform signal. As expected, the NGD reconstruction technique efficiency is confirmed with improvement of distorted signal integrity parameters and cross correlation better than 97%.
