Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 4 Thus, feedback reduces the gain by (1+T 0 ) and increases the –3dB bandwidth by (1+T 0 ) for a “one-pole” forward-path amplifier. The Gain x Bandwidth (GBW) product remains constant. 20 log 10 |A(j ! )| |p 1 | (1+T 0 )|p 1 | 20 log 10 a 0 20 log 10 |a(j ! )| 20 log 10 (1+T 0 ) 20 log 10 " 0

Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 6 At the frequency ! 0 = (1+T 0 )|p 1 | a(j ! 0 ) = A 0 and therefore T(j ! 0 ) = a(j ! 0 ) " f = A 0 f = a 0 f 1 + a 0 f # 1 Thus, ! 0 is the unity-gain bandwidth of the loop gain, T(s). To ensure the stability of the feedback loop, the phase shift in T(s) must be less than 180 o at, and below, ! 0 .

B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 7 Instability At a frequency where the phase shift around the loop of a feedback amplifier reaches ±180 o the feedback becomes positive. In that case, if the loop gain is greater than unity, the circuit is unstable. For a “single-pole” forward path amplifier stability is assured because the maximum phase shift is 90 o . However, if a(s), or in general T(s), has multiple poles, the the amount of loop gain that can be used is constrained. The stability of a feedback amplifier can be assessed from: Nyquist diagram Bode plots (plots of gain and phase as functions of frequency) Locus of poles (root locus) of A(s) in the s-plane B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 8 Nyquist Diagram For a feedback amplifier with loop gain T(j ! ) = a(j ! ) " f(j ! ) plot the magnitude vs. phase of T(j ! ) on a polar plot, with ! as a parameter. The resulting plot is symmetric for positive and negative ! . There follow examples for “single-pole” and “3-pole” amplifiers.
