Murmann 1 Lecture 7 Design Example 2 (Continued) Zero-Value Time Constant Analysis Boris Murmann Stanford University [email protected] Copyright © 2004 by Boris Murmann EE 214 Lecture 7 (HO#10) B. Murmann 2 Overview • Reading – 7.3.0, 7.3.1 7.3.2 (Zero-Value Time Constant Analysis) – 7.3.3 (Cascade Amplifier Frequency Response) – Supplementary document "Bandwidth estimation techniques," by Tom Lee (optional, see website). • Introduction – Last lecture, we found that using a simple circuit model based on only intrinsic capacitance is not sufficient for accurate bandwidth prediction in our CS stage. However, having learned about the involved extrinsic capacitances and the "Miller effect," we are now in a position to improve our hand analysis and match the Spice result with good precision. After this refinement, we will take at look at the the "Zero-Value Time Constant Analysis" as an alternative to the Miller approximation. This method will turn out to be useful for a much broader class of circuits, beyond simple common source stages. EE 214 Lecture 7 (HO#10) B.
