This thesis describes development of fast, radiation-hard Front-End (FE) electronics for readout of silicon strip detectors to be used in the experiments built around the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) machine. The thesis summarises the results of the author's work on the design, optimisation and evaluation tests of the analogue blocks of the FE chips, namely the preamplifiers, noise filtering stages (shapers) as well as the comparators required in the binary readout architecture.
