I have designed a folded cascode two stage opamp on 130nm process. The opamp works fine. Figure below shows the gain and phase response of opamp. It has 45 degree phase margin. Now the next step is to design circuit which generated the bias voltages for opamp. For initial case i used a resistive voltage divider to (...)

An opamp's input must be biased at half of its total power supply voltage for the highest symmetrical output swing.
biasing an opamp has nothing to do with its voltage gain.
Its voltage gain is the ratio of its negative feedback resistor to the other resistor (the input resistor if the opamp circuit is inverting or the (...)

I have a question in biasing an opamp. I only have +3volts supply on my circuit.
The opamp i am using requires +3volts and -3volts. So, do i need to generate -3volts supply for biasing? If i use 0volts instead of -3volts then my simulation is incorrect.
What is the bestway to fix this problem. Is there a fix (...)

To measure a high current(up to 30A, typically 15-20A.) i used a resistor based current measurement. I connected the sensing resistor to the low side and amplified(x10) the voltage on the resistor via an opamp (LM358N). Then i applied some tests and saw that, output voltage of the opamp is not directly proportional to the current. What may be the p

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.

Suppose in your second stage you have NMOS common-source amp and PMOS current source load. Then your second stage biasing current is mainly controlled by the PMOS current source, and actually Vgs of the NMOS is determined by this current. However if the opamp is used as a feedback amplifier, the common-mode feedback will automatically adjust the Vg

An ideal symmetric opamp surpress the common mode noise components from the bias. If the opamp is used in circuits which have to reject some big signals the common mode noises get modulated by the big signal and distort the wanted small signal. So in addition to AC small signal noise optimisation run a period noise analysis with a blocking signal.

Importantly, is the Y-axis right? I mean you have a Y axis which calls of degrees. I do not think so. I do not think that there is an opamp which will cause a 5 degree phase shift.
Secondly, have you put the options as .OPTIONS UNWRAP for the phase plot? If you have done so, then the cause is due to two RHP zeroes and not multiple poles. The pr

The first method is to use cascode transistors instead of simple common source amplifier.
Then, you can use Gain-boosting method which is described in almost all CMOS analog circuit design books.

If you place the opamp in a closed loop, as is almost always the case, it depends on the feedback. The gain-bandwidth product (=UGB) is constant in a voltage amplifier, so the lower the gain of the feedback path (return ratio) the higher the closed loop dominant pole in general. In the limit of unity feedback (unity gain buffer) the closed loop cu
