EE 214 Lecture 25 (HO#33) B. Murmann 1 Lecture 25 Supply Insensitive Biasing Boris Murmann Stanford University murmann@stanford.edu Copyright © 2004 by Boris Murmann EE 214 Lecture 25 (HO#33) B. Murmann 2 Overview Reading – 4.4.2 (Supply Insensitive Biasing) Introduction – Throughout this course, we have ignored the question on how to generate the reference bias currents used in most of our circuits. Today, we will examine a variety of current reference implementations, with primary focus on supply independence.

EE 214 Lecture 25 (HO#33) B. Murmann 3 Poor Man's Bias Issue: Current is essentially proportional to V DD – E.g. if V DD , varies by X%, bias current will roughly vary by the same amount R V V V I I OV t DD IN OUT = EE 214 Lecture 25 (HO#33) B. Murmann 4 "V t " Referenced Bias By using a sufficiently large device, we can make V OV << V t, and achieve 2 ox IN t 2 OV t 2 1 GS OUT R L W C I 2 V R V V R V I µ + + = 2 t OUT R V I Question: By how much will I OUT change given some variation in V DD ?
