An input folded cascode has a better output swing but it has a lower bandwith, larger power consumption, bigger IC area and lower gain than a NMOS telescopic cascode.

To sweep the inputs differentially, you need to have a common mode source and differential source at each input. For example, at the positive input, there is Vcm and 0.5*Vac. At the negative input, there is Vcm and a voltage-controlled voltage source with value -0.5*Vac. For your sweep, you simply need to sweep the source at th

OTA is only a kind of amplifier.
gray's book first talk about amplifer with small capacitive load, then, in another charpter, he introduced some output stage structrues for large capacitive load.

In figure 12.24a the DM half-circuit for the fully differential opamp on the

vod / 2 which means that the half circuit is inverting. However, my opinion (...)

I totally agree with Puppet1 about "the" book for starting to learn analog ic..why even analog design in general....I particularly love the way the in chapter 3 the small signal model is introduced and the way in which the need for biasing has been elucidated by plotting the Vo vs Vi curve for a simple single stage CE or CS stage!!!!

Noise mostly depends upon the first amplifying stage, that is differential pair and active load.
To minimize noise, transistors should be as big as possible (this reduces 1/f noise) with gm as large as possible (this reduces thermal noise). Obviously, current consumption appears in your tradeoffs.
See any book on analog design (Sansen (...)

Your question has been defined very generally!
If you want to find out biasing in analog integrated circuits (e.g. in Op amp) fundamentally, you may use famous books such as John & Martin, gray & Hurst, Razavi, their chapters about Opamp design; in the first case chapter 6 is the best!
but if you want to study for state of the art; I suggest

I want to say that we do have restrictions on the zeros of a system and they may complicate things a lot.
Usually in cases where stability is of concern, zeros in the right half plane are extremely problematic since they decrease the phase by 90 degrees, acting like some of the poles.
If I am not mistaken, there is a very nice example

The dominant pole of OP Amp is around a few Hz and the open-loop gain is around or above 10,000. But, considering the feedback in most applications, the closed-loop bandwidth will be increased a lot, according to the fact that bandwidth-gain product is the same in the feedback theory.

Sometimes I can see that a resistor is connected between the common base node and the ground. But in classic books ,such as gray and meyer's book,there is no resistor fron the common base node and the ground.
