146 Threads found on edaboard.com: Miller Capacitance
basically, miller effect is the small g-d capacitance multiplied by the voltage gain at the drain. a high impedance at the drain gives a big miller multiplication. however, looking into a source is a very low impedance so the voltage gain, and consequently the miller effect, is smaller.

In simple terms, the miller effect allows a small capacitance to be "amplified", which is useful for compensation. Using a non-miller capacitance for compensation means it will have a larger value, hence larger area.

To further amplify (sorry for the pun) on the post above, look at the schematic for the extra lumped capacitance added to the circuit. It will usually be across the input/output of one of the stages. The miller effect stated in the previous post is used to make the time constant larger than if the capacitance was across a lumped resistor.

my opinion is when a few limiting amplifier cascade together, the gain will increase from first stage to the last stage. As gain increase, the miller capacitance also increase according to formula cgd(1+A). This will form a even lower frequency pole as incresing stages, f=/2pi. RC. The output of the last stage will be

it could be because:
at the cascoded node, you reduce the milled effect cap for the input. but at the same time you isolate the feedback resistor with that node. it means the output resistance is increase to (gm//gds).
i am assuming the feedback resistor is much less than gm//gds.. then the bandwidth at the cascoded node will be reduced..

You are not doing this the standard way that most circuits work best at. You need to find which stage has the lowest pole frequency and add to the miller capacitance by putting the capacitor from base to collector on that stage. This will lower the dominant pole. I would guess that this is the second gain stage where you have the capacitor from

The desirable property of common base is that the base-collector capacitance goes from the output to ground and does not cause a miller effect or feedback that causes oscillations. The collector-emitter capacitance is much smaller. In the early days of large junction areas the common base circuit was commonly used at VHF.
