1 Lecture 9 Dominant Pole Approximation Zero-Value Time Constant Analysis R. Dutton, B. Murmann R. Dutton, B. Murmann 1 EE114 (HO #12) Stanford University Motivation Last lecture we saw that the Miller approximation is a very useful tool that allows us to estimate the -3dB bandwidth of our CS stage quickly and intuitively – Wouldn’t it be nice to have a similar technique of this kind that works for a broader class of circuits? The zero-value time constant (ZVTC) method is a tool that meets this demand We will continue to use the CS amplifier example to illustrate R. Dutton, B. Murmann 2 this method, along with its mathematical underpinnings EE114 (HO #12)
