I need to inject a 20nA sine current through 1 MOhm to 7 MOhm impedance, I made a sine wave oscillator a now I?m trying to do a vccs ckt, I probe two topology appeared in OP-Amp cookbook, but I can?t do a current peak to peak constant varying the load. :cry:
Observe that the current is very low and the impedance is very high.

In a macromodel subcircuit, when the normal vccs is used, the accuracy is sufficient. But when the behavior current source is used for the same object, the accuracy is very bad. When the output current is below 1e-9, it will ouput 0.
How to solve this problem?

I want to model a two pole amplifier to analysis the settling behavior.
At first I tried the transfer function using zero&poles,but the simulation seemed couldn't carry out due to the high pole.
Now I'm trying to build the model with R,C,and vccs,but I can't find the vccs model.
Any good idea?

why not just using a delay version of vccs which is provided by HSPICE or ELDO.
the delay you want is fixed. So you just fill in the delay.
You do get frequency dependent phase lag not frequency dependent delay.

OK, I think that you already have the answer:
Because output impedance is high and there is not CMFB, output dc voltage goes near VDD. And, the AC simulation result is wrong.

The answer is easy. The OTA structure should come close to the ideal OTA as much as possible. That means - high input impedance and high output impedance.
As all design formulas and strategies are based on ideal OTA properties (vccs) , all OTA parameters which do not correspond to these assumptions will disturb the filter function. Good (i e. near

Why do you need to represent an ideal fully differential amplifier with Voltage Controlled Current Sources (vccs)? You can use a Voltage Controlled Voltage Source (VCVS), which is fully differential (in and out). Maybe you need to upload a block diagram of your Multiplying DAC, so that we can understand better what you are trying to do.

Connect a VCVS (set its gain to 1) at the output of the macromodel you are describing (vccs + R||C) so that it acts as a buffer between this stage and the load introduced by the feedback network of the integrator. This may solve your problem, assuming that you are only checking the frequency response of your circuit in AC simulations.
