2 2 WLCHEN Outlines • This design guide and class-note-05 are needed as references to complete HW#3. •D e s i g n B l o c k s –B r o k a w B a n d g a p (architecture can be different.) – Constant current references & mirrors – IPTAT current references & mirrors – Constant Gm current references & mirrors – Thermal shut down circuit

3 3 WLCHEN Design Steps Design a bandgap circuit containing IPTATxR and VBE parts – The IPTAT part will be re-used as current reference – A start-up circuit is needed Design a constant current reference and mirror – An ideal OPAMP is approximated with a “vcvs” ideal voltage source in cadence. – VBG and an external zero T.C. R are used to generate constant currents – Both current sources and current sinks are required. Design an IPTAT current reference and mirror – Re-use it from BG circuit – Only current sources are needed Design a constant Gm current reference and mirrors – An ideal OPAMP and VBG are used to increase Rout – Only current sinks are needed. Design a thermal shut down circuit – Tz,h=150C & Tz,l=130C – Thermal hysteresis of 20C is achieved by changing sensing-R values.

4 4 WLCHEN BJT model setup In your UNIX home directory, please make a directory called “models”. Copy “NPN_AE13” into the “models” directory To add a BJT symbol into your schematic –“ i Æ “NCSU_Analog_parts” Æ ”N_Transistors” Æ ”npn” Æ drag it to a desired spot in your schematic then left click Æ key in “NPN_AE13” in the Model name and Multiplier number – In case changes of NPN_AE13 BJTs are needed, please “Q” the BJT symbol and type in “numbers of BJTs” in the “Multiplier” cell.
