First of all,since you have already studied about basic concepts of cmos opamp,then the next step is to choose the circuit topology that will implement your amplifier.I suppose that the opamp you are designing is for academic/training purposes and not straightly intended for production,so starting with the design of the (...)

The loop gain is not zero. A good reference can be found from P.Gray textbook.
The input-to-output connection is implicit on your opamp system (especially transistor level).
The two poles are usually located at (1) at the connection between the output of 1st stage and input of 2nd stage, (2) at the output of 2nd (...)

Can someone please explain the impact of load capacitor on the Slew Rate of a standard two stage op-amp?
In addition, can the use of cascoded miller compensation improve the slewrate performance of an op-amp?
I will appreciate if someone can point out the method to derive the slewrate formula for both cases.

All are wrong!
The folded cascode is a technique to extend the common mode input range capability to one rail or a little beyond. Also the voltage driving capability for a two stage design or the output voltage range for a one stage design is extended.
One stage designs are only used if you have only small cap loads. (...)

I would say the second choice is much better. As you know, in two-stage miller compensation, dominant pole is at the output node of the first stage (node 5) and the none-dominant pole is at the output node of the second stage (Vo). So we like to minimize the parasitic capacitance at the output node of the second (...)

Generally, the input referred noise depends mainly on the gm of the input stage. Perhaps using a two stage amplifier allows using more of the current budget in the input pair, thus improving their gm and hence reducing the input referred noise.
If you choose to have most of the current in the input pair and a small fraction in the output (...)

In conventional two stage opamp the miller cap is added between first dtage and second stage. This is frequency compensation and helps in making one pole as dominant pole and pushing the other pole towards infinity.
For the second pole ater compensation the RC product is approximately going to be same so,

Yes negative PSRR is a little more tricky. The best reference potential for most analog simulation is a chip external ground. The internal ground is the substrate. Nearly all components have a connection to substrate so it is the net with the biggest fanout. I ahve foulnd this gives also faster full chip simulation with full packgae parasitics if t

Don’t use a two stage approach; you will burn too much current in the second stage.
Unity Gain Bandwidth = 500 MHz => for stability second pole should be around 1.5 GHz!!!!!
Second Pole = gm(second stage)/(2*pi*Cload), believe me that will cost current.
Normally a folded cascade should be enough to reach 75 dB, (...)
