1000 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 Gray it is said single stage opamps,such as the telescopic cascode or folded cascode,have only one gain stage;therefore miller compensation is not possible.
Why? Can I attach a miller cap between negative input and single ended output?

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
the dominant pole or the firs

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.

yes, voltage spike on the drain can effect the gate voltage. The reason for this is the gate-drain (miller) capacitance of the FET. Have you tried to limit the spikes on the drain by using a snubber circuit from drain to source? The snubber would either be a RC or a RC+diode circuit.

Well the thought of adopting GM-filter is a good choice and the other sugestion of using miller cap is also suggestion is to go for gm-filter.u can use the o/p impedance of the mosfets for this cause.if that is not enough u can use cascoding techniques to increase the R and decrease the C .

Like to other two contributors said, follow the design rules. Typical electrode configuration is C-E-B because you can put the base electrode over the outside isolation thus minimizing your collector-substrate capacitance. In addition, keeping the base electrode away from your collector will also eliminate fringing capacitance to the two electrod

But I think we have to divide the "active clamp" into two categories:
One is the gate active clamp to minimize the miller capacitance effect at turn off.
The aim of this is to guarantee the OFF phase.
Another is the voltage clamp.
The aim of this is to limit the over-voltage during switching.

I can't follow the explaination. Because the FET is driven from the gate, Cgd acts as a negative feedback (miller capacitance)
that doesn't allow the gate voltage to fall below the threshold voltage in on state. Also the driver impedance and gate resistor
dimensioning are against this possibility.

In the CE amplifier the output voltage is in a inverse relation with the Ic current. When Ic increases when the input signal is swinging up the voltage across the collector resistor increases and as such the output voltage decreases (for the basic configuration Vout = Vcc-Ic*Rc).

A cascode stage is normally used at high (RF) frequencies to eliminate the miller capacitance effect between the transistor collector and base. The CB stage keeps the collector AC voltage of the CE stage near 0V so there is little AC negative feedback (feedback is undesirable) through the collector-base parasitic capacitance.

I think this might be caused by the miller capacitance (the capacitance from gate to drain). When Vgs rises, it will tend to cause the Drain to rise until the point where the device turns on hard. Try a slower rise time on Vgs to see if that minimizes the spike.
