folded cascoded Amplifier
1. High Gain
2. Improved Bandwidth
3. High Slew rate
4. High stability
5. High input impedance
6. The folded cascode Opamp is useful for moderately low supply voltages, at the cost of some extra current, but has limited performance in sub 1V applications, as well (...)

i am designing a folded cascode amplifier,with high gain and low current required,when i ever i run a monte carlo simulation in cadence while only mismatch is selected,the DM gain and CM gain vary a lot,means mismatch is really bad,can anybody tell me how to improve the mismatch of the whole circuit???thanks

- consider changing the output stage cascoded NFETs (M4-M13, M12-M14) into a mirror configuration, this will increase gain by a factor of two and also provide other advantages
- the output stage current will be defined by slew rate constraints, which in turn depend on the output capacitance
you can still increase the output resistance by increasi

As in the attachment,
the circuit uses the feedback to generate the stable current Id, which will be mirrored .And the mirrored Id through resistors can get the reference voltage used in ADC.

I saw this picture of folded cascode amplifier somewhere in a slide lecture. The problem is that the writer didn't give any explanation about subblocks in the picture.
As you can see, there are blocks:
- DC shift level
- Compensating DC shift level
- Driven current generator
I have searched a lot for how these blocks work but found nothing.

It seems to me a bit strange to compare a two stage architecture to a single stage architecture.
Generally talking, single stages offer lower gain, limited output swing and external stabilization compared to two stages architectures.
As for the folded cascode architecture also offers some advantages:
