EE114 Lecture 13 B. Murmann 3 EE114 (HO #17) Typical Design Objectives Minimize error in I O Minimize compliance voltage V omin Minimize capacitance C o Maximize R o Want to be able to scale currents, i.e. I O =K I I I I I O V I V O R o , C o + V omin - B. Murmann 4 EE114 (HO #17) Current Scaling (1) The above equation suggests that we can set K by scaling either or both the widths and lengths of the two MOSFETS – This deserves a closer look ( ) ( ) K V V L W C V V L W C I I ! t GS ox t GS ox I O = ! μ ! μ = 1 1 2 2 2 1 2 1 I I W 1 /L 1 I O V I V O M 1 W 2 /L 2 M 2

Murmann 6 Current Scaling (3) The remaining (and only option) for scaling the current is to use devices with different widths Basic possibility from a layout perspective (e.g. K=2) EE114 (HO #17) M1 W1 M2 W2=2W1
