Lecture 9 EE114 R. Dutton, B. Murmann 1 EE114 (HO #13) Lecture 9 Dominant Pole Approximation Zero-Value Time Constant Analysis R. Dutton, B. Murmann Stanford University R. Dutton, B. Murmann 2 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 this method, along with its mathematical underpinnings EE114 (HO #13)

Murmann 4 Analysis Revisited (2) We know that – The transfer function of our circuit has a dominant pole that sets the -3dB bandwidth – The non-dominant pole and zero have little influence on the -3dB bandwidth of the circuit Can we somehow use this fact to simplify the analysis? – Without circuit-specific “tricks” like the Miller approximation EE114 (HO #13) 10 6 10 7 10 8 10 9 10 10 -60 -40 -20 0 20 f [Hz] | H ( f ) | [ d B ] [ d e g ] Intrinsic cap only Intrinsic + extrinsic caps Dominant pole Non-dominant pole(s) and zero(s)
