Hi.. any one know any technique which can be used to design a current mirror capable of providing 10mA with low voltage headroom (less than 0.3V for the transistor to operate, the signal swing takes about 2.7V with 3V power supply) and high output impedance (more than 5k)? Is it possible cascode current mirror can achieve such a low voltage (...)

While it will increase CMRR,which is mandatory, the cascoding of the tail current source has nothing to do with the Av part of it. If you look into the differential half circuit, you will notice that the tail current source will never come into that part.
Moreover,in your case, the OPamp might need a very high PSRR- as well. Hence they will hav

that's design. first choose the currents (approximately) in each branch then choose the W/L to give the saturation voltage you desire.
Try 0.150v Vdsat for the mirrors, size M7/M8 to give the output current you need, and choose M2/M9 to set the class AB current in M7/M8 not too high.
PS - you don't bias using voltage, you bias using current

The general goal is to bias the transistors which signal travels in the saturation region to work with large gain and good linearity.Better to save more swing at the same time.
I just wonder the structure of the bias circuit for a OP amplifier. How to bias each transistor in a stacked configuration??[/quote

The main mirror M3 and M2 need to be sized according to the matching you need between your input and output current. With that size you can look at the Vdsat you get, if that is not enough you can increase the size more. Once you have sized that sufficienctly, you can size M1 and M4 as large devices so that

PSRR is linked to output conductance of transistors as well as matching among them. Try to increase channel length of your current mirrors and increase the area of transistors in general to improve matching.
Also, actually it depends on the Vth of your transistors, 3V is high enough to accomodate cascodes. Miller compensation could also help.

when you design a high BW opamp, the parasitic capacitor need be considered, such as cgs of M3. and the Cgs and gmbs of M9 when the compensation cap connected the source of M9 with the second stage output, because there is a zero at right plane, which affects your phase magin.

In general the active regulated cascode is the right choice for solving the trade between DC gain and output voltage swing. BUT
THIS ARCHITECTURE IS BAD! WHY?
Because the voltage across source/drain of m1 is vth-vdsat(ma1). That is higher than vdsat(m1). So you need a different amplifier.
You can use instead of ma1 a NMOS source (...)

I think the first can get the higher gain since the cascode output, the second is not easy to increase the gain since the gain mainly acquire from the output stage. But the first output swing is small, but i think it meet our application in bandgap error opamp.
The second reason is the bandgap Vbe is low, so it need a Pmos input.

Also, a 1G Gain Bandwidth product is weigh too high. Most probably it will be impossible ( but can't be 100% sure of that ).
I think for the given speed and input range, the telescopic is not a very good candidate ( very limited i/p range ). Perhaps
