Progettazione Mixed Signa Paolo Bruschi1 Two stage – Class AB Op-Amp: principle Class - A Class - B M5 M6 I D5 depends only on I B (bias current), while I D6 depends also on V DD Very poor PSSR !
Progettazione Mixed Signal Paolo Bruschi2 Two stage – Class AB Op-Amp Solution 1: Bias Chain Solves: I D5 and I D6 matching is now V DD independent IBIB But: Limitations remain on the maximum output V GS Bias chain By design:
Progettazione Mixed Signal Paolo Bruschi3 Solution 2: Floating battery Head–Tail Mesh (Monticelly Cell) The battery voltage decreases for large signals, allowing terminals A and B to swing across a full rail-to rail range V batt =V B -V A
Progettazione Mixed Signal Paolo Bruschi4 First stage with folded cascode topology Wide swing output current mirror for improved lower output voltage limit. A complementary input pair can be added to obtain rail-to- rail input range The floating battery class-AB control is often combined with a first stage with folded cascode structure. This stage provides increased gain and can be easily equipped with complementary input pairs to obtain rail-to-rail input range
