**Differential Amplifiers**

2
Outline

3
**Single-Ended Versus Differential Operation**

The transitions disturb the differential by equal amounts, leaving the difference in tact.

4
**Immunity to Supply Noise**

If VDD changes by ∆V, Vout changes by the same amount. Noise in VDD affects VX and VY, but not Vx-Vy

5
**Reduction of Coupled Noise**

Noise coupled from L3 to L1 and L2 to L1 cancel each other.

6
**Sensitivity to the Common mode level**

Excessive low Vin,CM turns off Devices.

7
**Basic Differential Pair**

8
**Schematic of Differential Amplifier**

9
**Input/Output Characteristics**

Minimum Slope Independent of Vin,cm Maximum Slope Thus maximum Gain

10
**Range of Vin,cm Lower bound of Vin,cm:**

VP should be sufficiently high in order for M3 to act as a current source. Upper bound of Vin, cm M1 and M2 need to remain in saturation.

11
**Sensitivity to Vin, cm M3 in the linear region is modeled**

12
**Small signal Gain as a function of Vin, CM**

13
**Maximum Allowable Output Swing**

The higher the input CM level, the smaller the allowable output swings.

14
Transconductance ∆Vin1Represents the maximum differential signal a differential pair can handle.

**Determinations of Small Signal Gain**

CS with resistive source degeneration Thevenin Resistance Cascode Superposition Principle

17
**CS with resistive source degeneration**

Interpretation: The resistance at the drain Divided by the resistance in the source path

18
**Treat M1 as a CS stage with resistive source degeneration to find VX/Vin**

19
**Replace M1 by its Thevenin Equivalent Circuit**

If RS is sufficiently large, then the small signal gain of the amplifier can be obtained using thevenin’s equivalent circuit (see hand out)

31
**Common-Mode to Differential Conversion at High Frequencies**

Even if the output resistance of the current source is high, the common-mode to differential conversion becomes significant at high frequencies.

32

39
Diode Connected Load Problem: Difficult to decrease (W/L)P without dropping the common mode voltage of Vout.

40
**Addition of Current Source to Increase Voltage Gain**

Reduce gm by reducing current rather than the aspect ratio. Reduce I(M3) and I(M4).
