1 1 Chapter 12 Opertational Amplifier Circuits

2 Learning Objectives 1) The design and analysis of the two basic CMOS op-amp architectures: the two-stage circuit and the single-stage, folded cascode circuit. 2) The complete circuit of an analog IC classic: the 741 op-amp. Though 40 years old, the 741 circuit includes so many interesting and useful design techniques that its study is still a must. 3) Applications of negative feedback within op-amp circuits to achieve bias stability and increased CMRR. 4) How to break a large analog circuit into its recognizable blocks, to be able to make the analysis amendable to a pencil-and-paper approach which is the best way to learn design. 5) Some of the modern techniques employed in the design of low-voltage single-supply BJT op amps. 6) Most importantly, how the different topics we learned about in the preceding chapters come together in the design of the most important analog IC the op amp. 2

16 Relationship Between SR and f t Simple relationship exists between unity-gain bandwidth (f t ) and slew rate (SR). Equations (12.31) through (12.40). SR = 2f t V OV Slew rate is determined by the overdrive voltage at which first-stage transistors are operated. For a given bias current I, a larger V OV is obtained if Q 1 and Q 2 are p- channel devices. 16

43 Summary 43 Most CMOS op-amps are designed to operate as part of a VLSI circuit and thus required to drive only small capacitive loads. Therefore, most do not have a low-output-resistance stage. There are basically two approaches to the design of CMOS opamps: a two-stage configuration and a single-stage topology using the folded-cascode circuit. In the two-stage CMOS op-amp, approximately equal gains are realized in the two stages. The threshold mismatch together with the low transconductance of the input stage result in a larger input offset voltage for the CMOS opamps than for bipolar units. Miller compensation is employed in the two-stage CMOS op-amp, but a series resistor is required to place the transmission zero at either s = infinity or on the negative real axis. CMOS op-amps have better slew rates.

44 Summary Use of the cascode configuration increases the gain of a CMOS amplifier stage by about two orders of magnitude, thus making possible a single-stage op-amp. The dominant pole of the folded-cascode op-amp is determined by the total capacitance at the output CL. Increasing CL improves the phase margin at the expense of reducing bandwidth. By using two complementary input differential pairs in parallel, the common-mode range may be extended. The output voltage swing of the folded-cascode op-amp may be extended by utilizing a wide-swing current mirror in place of the cascode mirror. The internal circuit of the 741 op-amp embodies many of the design techniques employed in bipolar analog integrated circuits. The 741 circuit consists of an input differential stage, a high-gain single-ended second stage, and a class AB output stage. It is the basis for many other devices. 44

45 Summary To obtain low input offset voltage and current, and high CMRR, the 741 input stage is designed to be perfectly balanced. The CMRR is increased by common-mode feedback, which also stabilizes the dc operating point. To obtain high input resistance and low input bias current, the input stage of the 741 is operated as a very low current level. The use of Miller Frequency compensation in the 741 circuit enables locating the dominant pole at a very low frequency, while utilizing a relatively small compensating capacitance. Two-stage op-amps may be modeled as a transconductance amplifier feeding an ideal integrator with CC as the integrating capacitor. The slew rate of a two-stage op-amp is determined by the first-stage bias current and frequency-compensation capacitor. While the 741 and similar op-amps nominally operate from 15V power supplies, modern BJT op-amps typically utilize a single ground-referenced supply of only 2 or 3V. 45
