Many analog electronics book has a chapter on analog multiplier. Razavi CMOS design book has a small section on this under differentail amplifier section. Gray/Meyer book should have it too. And many in IEEE website helps or if you can find, get the classic paper by Barry gilbert, the inventor of gilbert (...)
Search for paper by Razavi or Abidi online or at their UCLA website. They wrote quite a considerable amount on gilbert multiplier.
Please specify your questions. there are lots of application of gilbert cell in Analog IC design, especially in RF part.
i want to know is gilbert cell can act as a Frequency Doubler...from this circuit, the sentence"doubling the unity gain cutoff frequency of the amplifier" means the frequency has become bigger since the bandwidth is bigger? izzit
Hi, do pls only "gilbert cell" simple into google :-): You will have lot of other good answers too.. K.
gilbert cell is a frequency multiplier i.e. If my LO signal is at frequency f1 and my RF signal is at fr
Hello, I am trying to plot the ac response of a gilbert cell multiplier. I have set the differential pair inputs as V1 + v1 and V1 - v1. For the quad transistors, I have given V2 + v2 and V2 - v2 as inputs. To perform ac analysis, I have set the quad pairs ac magnitude as 0 and the diff pairs ac magnitude as 1, now after performing the (...)
Hi, Can you please tell me - the difference between gilbert cell and four quadrant multiplier? - what will affect the output frequency in four quadrant multiplier. i.e. the output frequency will be a multiple of both input or division of them? Thanks, :)
The NE602 and NE612 are mixers containing a gilbert cell and they are inexpensive. Tornado
Hi Faisal, 1- frequency multipliers are used as signal generation technique, permeting one to abtain and utilize the harmonics of a fundamental frequency technique, meaning if your input frquency is "f" you can get 2xf or 3xf ... 2- one of the approches that is been used for analog divider and multiplier is gilbert (...)
Hi, razavi's classical analog IC book talks about it, the common used one is gilbert cell, you can also search in google to find papers.
Search for current mode blocks like current conveyor and gilbert cell. Should give you a better idea on what's current mode as well as multiplier.
Well, a mixer and multiplier are of same type of architecture. The function realized by a multiplier and the mixer are the same. So, you must be using Spectre for simulation which is fine. Usually people use single quadrant gilbert cell type.
Reviewing this classical document, I was aware that Vahab actually didnt't mention if the application is kHz or MHz domain. For low frequency (e. g. audio) range, a log/antilog circuit, either as an IC or built from individual parts, is offering superior dynamic, for high frequency, only gilbert-cell multiplier circuits or thermal detectors (...)
This paper is implemented using a W/L of 10/30 and now we are trying to implement it using 0.5 um AMI technology. What least value we can assign to W/L..? Please help...
Signals can be added with a summing amplifier Op Amp Summing Amplifier Multiplication can be done with a gilbert cell but these are rather complex when built discretely. There are IC circuits which can perform this for you. gilbert cell - Wi
A multiplier is basically a nonlinear circuit, needing non-linear elements other than OPs. Depending on the intended operation (1/2/4-quadrant), dynamic and frequency range, different multiplier circuits or ICs are available. Some of them are log/antilog mutiplier (1-Q, high dynamic, limited bandwidth) basic gm-multiplier, also OTA-IC (...)
A common way to do analog multiplication is with a gilbert cell.
Hi Chopping method should be one type of multiplication. The classical chopping mixer is gilbert cell, which topology is simple. Performance trade-off is good. Multipling mixer often consists of many devices, which topology is complex. They often realize frequency conversion through current multiplicaion.
my design is to replace PLL to get a 50% duty design include a gilbert cell as a frequency multiplier follow by a frequency divider(divide by 2 -D flip-flop) jitter problem for input is input is just a pulse wave(~48Mhz) so phase lock i ignore my question is .. is this simple design will be succcesfull? is this comb
Hi All, Let me mention another method for a frequency doubler circuit, apparently neglected by many people, which is a four quadrant multiplier or known as gilbert cell. If you connect the two inputs together and apply a sinusoidal input, you will get a DC term + a double frequency sinusiodal voltage at the output. It is nearly as wid
mm , this topic is soo long , and very interesting the DPLL : digital PLL is the where some blocks are digital and some are analog " the PFD , the divider " digital and the CP and the VCO and the loop filter are analog , the most commonly the LPLL is all analog one , even the phase detctor is a multiplier "something like gilbert (...)
Hello, You can use the mixer structure to multiplier a square wave and a sinusoid, i attacched the gilbert cell mixer structure. You have to put the square wave on LO imput and the analog sinusoid on rf input
Hi We all know that the mixer is just a multiplier that can be modeled mathematically as V_out = m(t) * cos(wc*t) where: m(t) is the input modulating signal wc is the carrier frequency if we are upconverting from an IF-frequency then V_out = cos(w_IF*t) * cos(wc*t) = 0.5*(cos((wc+w_IF)t)+cos((wc-w_IF)t))) And we are interested
an arithmetic divider that operates ideally at any frequency Keep on dreaming. From the existing analog multiplier/divider variants, only "gilbert cell" (gm multiplier) is wideband. Log/antilog offers higher dynamic range but is restricted to MHz bandwidth at best, hall sensor multipliers (rather (...)
I fear, the term voltage controlled amplifier isn't very clear. I presume, you are referring to a variable gain amplifier (VGA). It comes in different flavours with rather different specifications regarding bandwidth, linearity and dynamic range. The classical building block for VGAs is a gm multiplier respectively a gilbert cell, comprised (...)
Changing the current through R2 should change the BE impedance of Q1 & Q2, which changes the gain. That is the principle behind a gilbert cell mixer. You only have half a gilbert cell so you are unbalanced and will see some DC bias shift as well. It is possible the BE impedance change is swamped by R3 diminishing the effect.
Some basic considerations about FET as variable resistors can be found in this thread To use it right in a VCA structure, you should understand the basic limitations regarding voltage range, linearity, matching of multiple transistors. All high performance VCA ICs are essentially analog multipliers
