I'm designing an ADC in 0.18um CMOS technology and I need an accurate and stable current source circuit for that. I have a couple of current sources designed by myself but all of them will fail in corner analysis. I want to make sure that my current sources will work in all (...)
Q2 will turn on when there is ~0.6 volts across its base-emmitter, turning off Q1. So current through the doiodes is: 0.6/ 10 = 60mA. So R1 = 0.6/ Required current.
Hi, I need a current source circuit using PWM technique. I need to vary the current from 0 to 1A by varying pulse width of 100HZ frequency signal. Please reply...
Hi guys. I have a question on a schematic that I am looking at. It is used as a variable current source, however I am just a little confused on how exactly it is working. It is attached. From what I gather, the 2 bits control how much voltage is present on the gate of p-MOS2 via potential dividers. I am a little confused about what the 2 p-MOS
Friends, I need to make a Stable AC current source.... It should be able to vary the current using a Potentiometer from 1A to 5A of about 100VA rating....
I agree about the PMOS suggestion. An important advantage of the output transistor connected as source follower is less current dependent gain. For the compensation, I'm pretty sure that C1 should be used rather than C2. The latter doesn't cancel the gate capacitance related pole and may have difficulties to achieve stable behavior at all. C1 shoul
I need a design hint for a adjustable current sink or current source. I want to control the current through a solenoid (hydraulic control). The current must be adjustable by a voltage (DAC). It should be a closed loop control. The current is in the range from 50mA to 1500mA. The supply (...)

Hello brothers! I have one problem: I am design a PWM circuit that control the current source in galvanometer(speed meter). The manufacturer of the galvanometer (speed meter) specify the following conditions: 60Hz, 0...25mA; speed show proportional of the pulse current throught of the coil. I design the (...)
Hi this circuit look like strange .. output use "invert" stage .. I think it will have large THD when input is small input .. what not use class_AB stage ? and I only know some output stage use common_source + current load --> Razavi have a good book "design of Analog CMOS integrated circuit "
Half wave rectify a sine wave oscillator output and put the resulting to a voltage to current converter.
please specify your requirements; 50 nA is too low to control on chip since it is comparable to leakage currents or even cross talk to other signals on the chip will corrupt its value/accuracy. in this cases, the system or circuit topology/technique must be changed! BEST!
Voltge is like the pressure of water and current is like the flow of water. Voltage source means measure the pressure of water at that point and current source means measure the flow of water at that point rather than measure the pressure.
hi! i need a constant current source that can be adjusted with pwm. (about 1.5-2 A). is there such a circuit?
After finished a DAC design, I found that the bandgap output voltage can not bias DAC directly. So I need a current mirror circuit to bias the current source array in DAC (current steering architecture) . This circuit can change the bandgap output voltage to current. A paper (...)
Hello! If you need acurate current source you could use several Texas Instruments (w* current references REF200AU. Regards!
Dear All, I've tried to simulate a current-controlled current source(CCCS) in Hspice. Refer to the diagram, and the syntax for CCCS is: Fcccs1 Iout gnd Vsen 0.5 Vsen A gnd 0 My question is : Vsen voltage souce should be 0v or 0.5v (1/2 of the 1v), why? Thanks in advance... regards, smart
Can PTAT? current source be implemented by CMOS only? Anybody has the circuit? Thanks
just remember it this way: an ideal current source is represented by a nortons model:a current source in parallel witha a resistance,so when this parallel resiatnce becomes infinite then the whole of the current sourced by the current source reaches the (...)
one current source is propportional to absolute temperature, another is negative temperature coefficient. and there are only bipolar transistors in the circuit. in other words , there can not be mos transistor in the circuit. thanks
I don't think you need another external 1A constant current source to drive this circuit. As you can see from, for example, Fig.3 (data sheet) by selecting 0.125Ω current setting resistor the current in this circuit is set to 1A, so what you need is a voltage source (...)
Dear all, My current source is w/L=64/20.How do I layout to improve area? And if my current source is W/L=1/20 but they have 64. Which one is good(64/20 or 1/20*64)? If 1/20*64, how do I layout to improve area? Thanks.
For CMOS VCO design, T.H Lee and Ali said to bias VCO to the point before Voltage limited to achieve the best phase noise. And also the symmetry of the wavefrom can reduce the flicker noise upconversion. But there is a problem is, for the VCO with tail current source, if bias the circuit to achieve the symmetry, normally the tail (...)
Dear all, If I have want to model my current source layout(permutation), how do I do? Which tool do I use? How do I do? Thanks.
In case of a constant current source at first the current will flow at contant rate, so the voltage increase will be linear, but if it is not ideal case where the supply voltage is infinite, finally, the current will decrease --> it asymptotically approaches zero for longer, and longer times. Similarly the charge (voltage) (...)

I am trying to build a current source that could deliver about 800mA current. It is meant for a battery Charger. I simulated the circuit for 70mA. Then I started to look for commercially available current source ICs. Most ICs supplied not more than 10uA to 10mA. Is a current (...)
I am looking for a high effeciency voltage controlled constant current source for driving and dimming 3W White LED's. I saw the solution provided by IanP over here but I think effeciency is an issue in that circuit as resistor R1 will dissipate considerable amount of power which is not desirable when usin
I need to make a current detection circuit for a Diode. and please help me to find a IC or a good circuit to detect the current. a brief description is: The cathod of the diode is GNDed via a current source and the anode of the diode is connected with Vcc directly. the purpose of the (...)
hello i need a current source for LDO's opamp. Vin changes from 1.3 to 3.3 so i need something voltage independent. simple use of resistor to create a reference current is very inacurrate. what can i use with so high voltage change?
I have a circuit I am treating as a "black box" but it involves a switching regulator. I am trying to "inject current" into the feedback loop of the regulator in order to change the output voltage, but I find that when I do so, it throws both the circuit involving the regulator, and the current source I have (...)
Very useful circuit, whoose idea is to make equal Vds voltages of two pmos, which results in ideal current matching. Amplifier is just used to set DC voltage gate voltage of current current mirror gate. So I see this circuit like ideally matched current mirror. If you want to calculate (...)
use a bandgap and output the current
hi,all I need a constant current reference in my circuit, it's value is about 1uA.I summed a PTAT current from bandgap and a CTAT current to achieve this target, it's TC performance is ok, but the resistance's value will departure 20%, so the current value will change at different corners.Anyone has an (...)
try using a dig pot on the base of a transistor to control the emitter current. Control the dig pot using the microcontroller.
Hi Jutek, What specifically falls apart at the corners, and which corner? Here is a delta-Vgs circuit I am drawing for the Openschemes op-amp that has worked pretty well. If you need a Vgs/R you can build one in a similar manner, but it looked like your original circuit was also a delta-vgs. One warning - when using on-chip resistors, you
Use any D/A converter and feed the attached circuit with voltage .. To ensure 40A current capability you will need to connect several power transistors in parallel - hence a power transistor array .. Regards, IanP
Who can help me the analysis this bandgap about the current "I50A" in this bandgap circuit? Is it PTAT current or temperature-independent? I think it is PTAT but I was told that it work as a bandgap current source in a ADC circuit. 2.How about the voltage "Vm" in the mi
