10 CB Amplifier

11 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 11 High-Frequency Analysis of CB Amplifier The amplifiers upper cutoff frequency will be the lower of these two poles. From current gain analysis

12 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 12 Common source amplifier, followed by common gate stage – G 2 is an incremental ground MOS Cascode Amplifier

13 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 13 CS cacaded with CG Cascode Very popular configuration Often considered as a single stage amplifier Combine high input impedance and large transconductance in CS with current buffering and superior high frequency response of CG Can be used to achieve equal gain but wider bandwidth than CS Can be used to achieve higher gain with same GBW as CS MOS Cascode Amplifier

15 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 15 KCL at v s2 MOS Cascode Analysis

16 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 16 Two cases MOS Cascode Analysis

17 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 17 CASE 1 The voltage gain becomes MOS Cascode Analysis

18 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 18 CASE 2 The voltage gain becomes MOS Cascode Analysis

19 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 19 MOS Cascode at High Frequency The upper corner frequency of the cascode can be approximated as:

20 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 20 Capacitance C gs1 sees a resistance R sig Capacitance C gd1 sees a resistance R gd1 Capacitance (C db1 +C gs2 ) sees resistance R d1 Capacitance (C L +C gd2 ) sees resistance (R L ||R out ) MOS Cascode at High Frequency

21 ECE 442 – Jose Schutt-Aine 21 If R sig is large, to extend the bandwidth we must lower R L. This lowers R d1 and makes the Miller effect insignificant If R sig is small, there is no Miller effect. A large value of R L will give high gain MOS Cascode at High Frequency

22 Effect of Cascoding (when R sig =0)
