EE 214 Lecture 17 (HO#25) B. Murmann 1 Lecture 17 Compensation Two-Stage OTA Design Considerations Boris Murmann Stanford University [email protected] Copyright © 2004 by Boris Murmann EE 214 Lecture 17 (HO#25) B. Murmann 2 Overview Reading – 9.4.1, 9.4.2, 9.4.3 (Compensation) Introduction – In this lecture, we will continue to look at the pole splitting technique as a method for achieving sufficient phase margin in a two-stage amplifier. While using a Miller capacitance for compensation helps move the non-dominant pole to higher frequency, it also introduces an undesired zero in the transfer function. Today, we'll discuss several options on how to cope with this artifact. – In addition, we will review a possible design strategy for two- stage OTAs. Since there exist many degrees of freedom in this topology, a thorough hand analysis is essential, and can help minimize, if not completely eliminate, the time needed for a large number of Spice iterations.
