Does there any paper related to this topic? high supply voltage, cmos folded-cascade amplifer made by low voltage mosfet and high voltage mosfet both. thanks.

## Static power of two stage amplifer design in cadence

Hi, You should have a voltage source in your device (i.e., Vdd as a DC power source). Simply measuring the current that this source gives (let's say it is idd), you can calculate the total static power of the opamp by calculating vdd*idd.

## Scan 100 to 500v at input of PIC microcontroller

Hi, I am using PIC18f4550 micocontroller. Right now I am using inbuilt ADC to check input voltage i.e. 0 to 5v. But now as per my application I need to scan 100V to 500V DC input voltage at ADC. How can I do ? Please suggest me. Thanks in advance.

## trans impedance amplifer

It's not a Transimpedance Amplifier... It looks like simple Differential Pair follwoing Output Stage.. The Input of a Transimpedance Amplifier is always Current,not voltage.So, using a differential pair with CMOS transistors at the input stage is not correct..

## VHF DC-DC converters

I've been studying VHF DC-DC converters to see how to make the most efficient and smallest size of an envelop tracking power supply for an RF transmitter power amplifer. It needs to be a capacitively coupled (or transformer coupled) boost converter so the output voltage can go down to near zero volts. I'm thinking of using a lower frequency like

## Differential Amplifer with Active Load, dc gain question

It is not clear what you are sweeping but if it is V18 then you are looking at the common mode response which would explain why the output is fairly flat once you reach enough voltage to turn on the input stage. Keith

## Why output voltage so small?

Hi, I am simulating RF self-biased cascode power amplifer in Cadence under the paper below: A 2.4GHz, 0.18?m CMOS self-biased cascode power amplifier. (attached below) My problem is that the output voltage, Vout, is even smaller than input voltage, Vin. Meaning that it doesn't amply at all even attenuate input signal. Could anyone help? (...)

## audio amplifer with power supply of 4.5v

An LM386 amplifier has a minimum supply voltage of 4.0V. Three alkaline battery cells are 4.5V when brand new and their voltage quickly drops to 3.6V where the LM386 will not work. With a supply of 4.5V the output power at clipping into 4 ohms is 132mW which is almost nothing (headphones level). A cheap clock radio produces about 500mW. Maybe you

## MAX414 non-inverting amplifer not working

It doesn't seem to have any errors although I can't find a data sheet for the LM2490 to check it's drop out voltage limit. It appears you are using the +5V as ground so the supply is -5V and +7V, there is nothing wrong with that as long as the regulator holds up as the battery discharges. The only possible problem I can see is listed in the paragr

## How to determine the slew rate of error amplifier for DCDC converter

A voltage mode DCDC converter, need to know the slew rate of error amplifer, assume the compensation cap of the error amplifer is C1 and C2, the sawtooth voltage range is 2V. How to calculate the slew rate of error amplifer? thanks.

## MCP3424 negative input

One way to do it is to use an OP-amp connected as a summing amplifier and add some offset to get the output voltage for the zero point in the middle of the ADC range.

## Transimpedance Amplifier with low feedback resistor

I think you need to show how you are getting you results. If from simulation then it would use a current source and the output voltage should relate to the input current and feedback resistor. Keith

## temperature controlling using pic18f4550

As per my understanding you are using thermo-couple for detection of temperature....Also your instrumentation amplifer circuit AD594 is uncomplete my view the output of AD594 will be analog voltage so better to give this signal to adc pin of you can do interfacing.... Good Luck

## Can anybody give me some suggestions about a audio frequency amplifier design

## design of common emitter

i want to design a common emitter amplifer but im facing sum problems i know vcc=15v and i require a high input voltage like 10k i need a maxium output swing so what value of Ic should be considered for that ?? half of the maxium rated current?? or the rated Ic for beta??? 62811

## power amplifer design

I assume that you'll find masses of amplifier circuits on the internet. For the principle circuits, you can refer to the below LTSpice example circuit. It has to be modified for output power (stronger output transistors, increased supply voltage) and possibly gain. For 5 mV sensitivity, you should better add a separate preamp stage. [url=

## Question about gate biasing of pHEMT amplifiers

Your circuit is not a simple GaAs pHEMT instead an amplifer with its own biasing. Gate biasing is negative to Source in pHEMTs and it's provided by simple source resistance so it creates a negative GS voltage when G is grounded. I think you have forgotten to connect RF choke btween Vdd and the circuit because some circuits don't have own on-chip

## Pipeline ADC residue amplifer

Hi guys, I'm new to pipeline ADC. Now I'm confused about the residue amplifier. Based on the system function block,the Vout vs Vin for every stage, should be:Vout=2^B*(Vin-VDAC), (B is the number of bit of every stage,VDAC is the voltage from B+1 bit DAC). But in the realization of the residue amplifier using SC circuit, we often

## Maximum input Specification

Hi, Just a query to confirm some doubt When the input to a high frequency amplifer is written as +5dBm.... does it mean that the maximum input power it can take is 3.2mW? Also if we are to calculate the maximum input voltage... how do we convert from there.... could we simply take the resistance as 50 ohm and calculate the Vrms? Thanks

## DC offset cancellation in VGA (Variable gain amplifer)

Applying the offset voltage correction signal to the variable gain amplifier it will adjust the forward gain factor of the VGA and the gain factor of the offset loop amplifier. Increasing the forward gains tends to change the cut-off frequencies. Is necessarily to analyze and tune the transfer function of the loop.

## thermocouple interfacing to instrumenation amplifer

You must guarantee a common mode input voltage within allowed limits. Usually this doesn't work with a floating source. You need at least high-ohmic bias resistors at the input. Consult a datasheet of a typical monolithic instrumentation amplifier for reference.

## undesired Oscillation problem

Is "Vbias" supplied by an external voltage source ?? Or as I saw, three gates are connected between them ??

## how to make proper voltage divider

When considering voltage divider, you have to consider load as well. If your microcontroller or amplifer that requires voltage from such voltage divider you have to consider this: What is maximum ammount or error in application in question? Is there a low power consumtion requirement? Is high frequency involved and (...)

## stk 463 stero amplifer help

i found a Schematic on line that is a little confusing to me. is this Schematic telling me the capactents of the capactiors and is so what is the voltged. The very old circuit has a max supply voltage of plus and minus 38VDC. Capacitors connected to the supply voltages and connected to the output should have a volta

## offset voltage temperature drift

hi all: for exaplem: a differential to single output amplifer's random offset voltage is vos=Δvth1-2+(gm3/gm1)Δvth3-4. in my opinion,bec the input pair and the load pair are difference type mos,so the drift come from the (gm3/gm1).but from sansen' book said the Δvth's drift usually a few mv/C. my question is :why [

## I found it difficult to find an document about VGA ?

yes ,it is Video Graphics Array the only confusion is that i don't know the voltage range on the R ,G,B signal pin? somebody says they are 0-0.7v,i can not find the offical document,so i can not start my design

## how to tap signals from instrumentation panel

Hi, It depends on the type of sources driving the gauges. For instance, if the signals are ground referred current sources, you can insert small resistors in the loop and using a buffer amplifer pick up the voltage for further processing. If the signals are digital, may be you can use opto isolators to tap the signal. For ground referred volt

## What is Error Amplifer used for ?

Your Mosfet doesn't have much voltage gain. Usually an opamp with an internal voltage gain of 200,000 is used as an error amplifier.

## Why is the error amplifer used in LDO usually an OTA?

OTA is voltage-in and current-out, so it drives capacitive loads only as it's without a output buffer. Pass gate is a large cap PMOS or NMOS, so OTA is a good choice. However, OTA has high input and output impedance, so buffering the OTA output is commonly seen. One of the beauty to change the transconductance of OTA is to change the bias current

## how to measure the gm of the OP Amplifer

use AC simulation, selecting device current and then divide by input ac voltage, you can get gm. I just use this method, another method is select output ac current and differentiate it to get first order gm.

## Design of fully differential folded-cascode

R1 for degenration , to a feed back , and make the amplifer more linear for sure this reduce the gain about Ra , RB to get a sample of ouput voltage common mode , to control the CMFB circuit i think gain is not affected by these resistors khouly

## 10uF on output of an operation amplifer

A 10 uF capacitor connected to your Op-Amp O/P may destroy the O/P stage of the Amplifier, because at power on, a capacitor is supposed to act as a voltage sink, i.e., an instantaneous short circuit will be applied to your Op-Amp O/P pin, The capacitor voltage will increase gradually as it's charging from the O/P pin. Try to Avoid this approach.

## Help me? How to design Current Amplifier for PLC analog o/p?

There are so called "power operational amplifiers" out there .. For example, take a look at the L272: To ensure 0-10V output voltage swing you should consider +/-12V supply .. Regards, ianP

## Problem with diff Op-Amp designed with CMFB

Your cmfb will make your output node stable. In your simple CMFB, the output voltage will depend on you adjustment on the size of transistor. It may get the Vdd/2, but it needs time and patience. A better way to get a certain output common voltage, you'd better use a feedback network to amplifer the difference between your current Voc (...)

## NMOS of CMFB in linear region

CMFB being in linear (triode) region is something not good. Your error amplifer won't be able to provide a constant gain as not in saturation, thus this will create a offset in your dc reference voltage which will finally effect your common mode dc voltage. So, try to make your CMFB always in saturation region.

## A question about DC gain of amplifer,thanx

I test the DC gain by doing the and .dc analysis But the result is a little different. The ac. analysis shows the DC gain is 61.7dB, about 1000 The dc. analysis shows the DC gain is 898. Why the result is different ? thanx What i see from the graph is 898 is not gain, the unit is in voltage and there might be s

## Suggest me some analog circuits for voltage comparison

To design a comparator, you need to have high gain amplifer. To achieve this, design a folded cascode + gain boost architecture. Then this amplifier have to be followed by a digital inverter buffer to determine your output logic level for input voltage comparison.

## How to supply vdd for the internal components of SMPS??

Hello everyone, I have a question here. Should I use the input voltage of a DC-DC converter (i.e., the output of a battery) as the Vdd supply for all the components in it? Like the error amplifier, comparator...... Or do I have to use an internal voltage regulator?? Please help me out! Thank you in advance! Regards, rockycheng

## OTA Amplifier and Voltage Amplfier Comparison

Guys, Need some feedback on the OTA and voltage amplifier. As we know that voltage amplifer will have low output impedance and we can say it sense input and output as voltage to voltage whereby OTA will have high output impdeance and will sense voltage to current which the gain is (...)

## question about switch capacitor feedback factor

Only in the amplifer phase, the loop is close loop. then a feedback factor is meaning. other time , the feedback factor is no meaning due to open loop. while the loop is close, open output node of feedback capacitor, then insert a voltage souce, then derive the loop gain G(s), after this, we know the forward gain of op is A(s) , then we can ge

## What is the function of a TIA?

in the ordinary amplifier we say transconductance , which is how the collaector current change with a certain voltage so in transimpedance how the output voltage will cahnge with input current so TIA is always used as current to voltage conveter and amplifer khouly

## Integrator simulation warning about missing bulk source

A problem about an integrator simulation; when i simulate an integrator ,a warning is followed that missing bulk source(a reset MOS switch ) would be forwardly biased. i do not know why? integrator state: 1.a photodiode is connected to negative input terminal of operational amplifer. 2. a 2.5v referrence voltage is connected to positiv

## Help!!how to design a voltage adder??

## How to design mutisection directional coupler?

I want to know if someone have any document or software to design muti-section firectional coupler? I use tunneling diode to detect RF power. Second, I had designed log amplifer to transform RF power to DC voltage. What's differents between Directional detector and log amplier? I mean they both can transform RF to DC. Thanks. ps. I'm

## 2 statge OPA design problem

The source at 2.5V sets the input common mode to that voltage. Depending on your technology, you have to verify that this value is within the valid common mode range of your amplifer. Your supposition when Vcc=3.3V is correct. You use AC 1 so that the output signal you get is the amplifier's gain. But you can use whichever value you want, provid

## How make a PIC based Voltmeter for 24 volt reg. Power Suply?

How about precise of you meter. If you test voltage ranger beyond 256 grade,you should use two or three channel amplifer to generate 2/3 gain voltage,then input to ad0832

## schematic circuit for charge amplifier

Do you need CA to measure capacitor or charge? Charge amplifers are used in micromechanical sensors. But charge is changed there because capacitor changes. And if the speed of capacitor deviation is low, it is better to use capacitor to voltage convertors.
