L Be—sohnd thd problems on the second midterm examl 1 Consider the following ampliﬁer circuit. You may assume that 1) all nMOS transistors
are identical to each other, 2) all pMOS transistors are identical to each other, 3) al
transistors are in saturation, 4) Rk, << rdsi for all i and k, and 5) the input signa
frequencies are sufﬁciently low that all capacitances can be ignored. Wm Vim a Drain the differentialnnodd small—signa 1131mm oLthe ampliﬁerl bl Derivd expressions for Adm andl Adm_cml (Hintl Fori large values of gmlrds A Adm
