## LDO at no load condition

Hi all , Am designing a cap-less ldo/ While simulating at no load, stability of the circuit went totally loose. Although it is stable at any other load. Does anyone have an idea how to deal with this ? Should I use a certain compensation scheme for the OTA, although it has enough phase margin ?! Thanks in advance.

If you see the loop gain plot(pic 1) the phase curve starts from 180 degrees. This means that your phase at gain cross over is 180 + 81 degrees. Your ldo is unstable. A two stage amplifier would have two poles and the pass transistor stage will have one pole. Unless your sizes are such that the poles are far apart, the (...)

## about PM calculation and LDO question

in usual opamp ac simulation, the phase margin(PM) starts from 180-degree or 0-degree, and PM=phase (when VDB(out)=0) or 180+phase (when VDB(out)=0); however, in bandgap core loop ac simulation (using two bjt to generate detaVBE, and using an opamp to force V+ = V-), the (...)

Hi, I am currently debuging the Bandgap and ldos peaking at 3V power supply problem; please refer to the attachment 70540 the norminal VDD is 3.3V, and I look at the schematic, simulation results shows OK, no much variation with power supply change, also the phase margin of (...)

## LDO simulation and what is LDO load

ldo load current source or resistive :The reality is some where in between ,so i would test ldo with both resistive and current source ,ofcouse you get different AC gain from the fact that current source has high output impedance . make sure you plot phase margin Vs load resistor

## NMOS LDO Stability Problem

Hi,all For NMOS ldo, we usually thought it intrinsic stability. and I'm sure for high load, the ldo is stability. But how about light load, or no load? For that condition, the output shows a low frequency pole. So, there are two low frequency poles, and it's hard to make good phase margin. (...)

## questions about PSRR and output noise of LDO

Hi, dear all: the figure is captured from a datasheet of ldo. and I find that most of ldo datasheet report the PSRR of 10~1M Hz, and the noise of 100~100k Hz. why these frequency range? the higher frequency is no need to care about? or the PSRR and noise is attenuated too much at higher frequency? (...)

## how to simulate LDO with pulse output current

The ldo under Iout=0 is unstable. Sometimes phase margin is not trustable.

## Improving LDO phase margin for the unloaded current

I am designing an ldo that has an external load range from 1uF to 10uF. Under loaded conditons (current load), I have pretty good phase margin, however for the unloaded (current), my phase margin reduces significantly. I have tried incorporating a zero to offset the phase rolloff, however (...)

## LDO gain and bandwidth question

Hi, I inherited some ldo design from a "departed" designer, and since this is my first ldo design (I've done some simple regulators before, but not like this) I have some pretty basic questions. Here are the basic specs first: - the ldo is a step down from VIN=6.5V to VCC=5V (not much of an ldo really (...)

## relation ship between phase margin and load transient respon

hi all, i need a mathematical relation ship between phase margin and load transient response of ldo.If anyone knows could you please post it . thanks If such a relationship exists in a closed mathematical form, it surely will depend on the order of the closed loop system. I know that such a relationship exists for

## Question about LDO ac simulation?

hello, for the AC sim of ldo, you can use RC technique described in philip allen's book (cmos analog circuit design) or iprobe with stb analysis in cadence spectre. both simulations will find open loop gain and phase margin of your ldo. make sure that pass device in ldo always (...)

## problem on compensation of a LDO?

Hi, all I am designing a ldo. But when I simulated the open loop gain and phase, I found that the dc gain, unity gain frequency and phase margin are different in different loading condition. How can I deal with it? Could you give me some suggestions? Thank you! Ken 2007/08/0.6

## How does LDO acheive stability?

Hi , everyone : Some ldo's datasheet said that the ldo need not the ESR of the Co for stability , but the Co must greater than some value . Do you have any idea about the poles and zeros and their relationship ? I mean how the ldo get stablity .

## 20°phase margin enough?

From NSC's application note, Stable loops typically require a phase margin of >20° for ldo. But I think you need keep some margin in design.

## What type of LDO structure for digital circuits in a SoC?

how to simulation phase margin about ldo ? someone tell me , OPA only act as "DC" buffer don't care phase margin , In gerneral , I sim phase margin is refere to cmos circuit design layout & sim /baker use large R + C in feedback . and (...)

## How to check the LDO output?

Hi I want to check the ldo that drive the inverters that take 1 mA. In AC analysis, to check the loop gain and phase margin,should i put resistor at the output to sink 1 mA or straight away the ldo output drive the inverters? I found out the result is different for both method.

## Help me improve phase margin of LDO with buffer

hello The ldo consists simple OTA as an error amplifier and opamp as a buffer, but not in a unity configuration, but with a gain 10V/V. i need it, cause i have low vdd=1.3 and high threshold voltages. the buffer is to move second pole to higher frequencies. The problem is phase margin. I know that (...)

## Help : LDO's Gain and Phase ?

Dear All: I design a ldo. The phase margin at UGF (150kHz) is great than 50 but ldo's phase margin is less than 20 at 8.5kHz. Is it safe in the design ?

## Error Amp phase margin VS. stability analysis of LDO....

Dear neter, A phase margin of about 40 degrees is more than enough with the settling in a ldo with a switching load. It is mighty difficult to use a PMOS drop out transistor or a very low drop out and get a very high stability in a 60 degree phase margin. Also, ESR of the load capacitance (...)
