In the readout electronics of the Water Cerenkov Detector Array(WCDA) in the Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory(LHAASO) experiment, both high-resolution charge and time measurement are required over a dynamic range from 1 photoelectron(P.E.) to 4000 P.E. The Analog Front-end(AFE) circuit is one of the crucial parts in the readout electronics. We designed and optimized a prototype of the AFE through parameter calculation and circuit simulation, and conducted initial electronics tests on this prototype to evaluate its performance. Test results indicate that the charge resolution is better than 1%@4000 P.E. and remains better than 10%@1 P.E., and the time resolution is better than 0.5 ns RMS, which is better than the application requirements.
