EE 214 Lecture 3 (HO#5) B. Murmann 2 Overview Reading 1.6.8 (Transit Frequency) Introduction – Having established some basic modeling tools, we will now look at the achievable performance of our common source stage. We'll derive first order expressions for the amplifier's bandwidth and power dissipation. As we will see, these metrics are proportionally related to more fundamental performance measures of the MOS device itself: Transit Frequency and Transconductor Efficiency.

Murmann 3 Common Source Amplifier Revisited Consider a common source stage driven by a "transducer" Ideally, what we want to achieve is – A certain voltage gain – Large bandwidth, low power dissipation I D +i d R L V O +v o V DD v i V I r o C gs g m v gs + v gs - + v o - R L R i Transducer R i v i
