EE215A B. Razavi Fall 08 HO #5 13 Single-Stage Amplifiers Many aspects of the performance of amplifiers are citical. We summarize the tarde-offs as whown below. The amplifiers to be studied here include: CS and CG stages, source followers, and cascades. For each stage, we wish to study both the large-signal and small-signal properties. Common Source Stage - Large-Signal Behavior What is the small-signal gain in this region? At point A:

EE215A B. Razavi Fall 08 HO #5 14 How do we maximize the gain? - Small-Signal Analysis We assume that the bias currents and voltages are chosen such that M 1 is in saturation and Q I in forward active region. Voltage Gain: Many CMOS technologies do not have resistors with useful sheet resistivity. So we try other tricks: This device can operate as a resistor. How about this: Common Source with “Diode” Load
