3 High Speed, Broadband Amplifiers The first thing that you typically do to the input signal is amplify it package Connector Adjoining pins Controlled Impedance PCB trace die Driving Source OnChip Z 1 Delay = x Characteristic Impedance = Z o L 1 Amp V out V Transmission Line in C 1 C 2 R L V L Function  Boosts signal levels to acceptable values  Provides reverse isolation Key performance parameters  Gain, bandwidth, noise, linearity

6 Analysis of Amplifier Behavior Typically focus on small signal behavior  Work with a linearized model such as hybridπ  Thevenin modeling techniques allow fast and efficient analysis To do small signal analysis: Small Signal Analysis Steps I D R D 1) Solve for bias current I d v in V bias R G R S v out 2) Calculate small signal parameters (such as g m, r o ) 3) Solve for small signal response using transistor hybridπ small signal model

10 Wiring Parasitics Capacitance  Gate: cap from poly to substrate and metal layers  Drain and source: cap from metal routing path to substrate and other metal layers Resistance  Gate: poly gate has resistance (reduced by silicide)  Drain and source: some resistance in diffusion region, and from routing long metal lines Inductance  Gate: poly gate has negligible inductance  Drain and source: becoming an issue for long wires Extract these parasitics from circuit layout
11 Frequency Performance of a CMOS Device Two figures of merit in common use  f t : frequency for which current gain is unity  f max : frequency for which power gain is unity Common intuition about f t  Gain, bandwidth product is conserved  We will see that MOS devices have an f t that shifts with bias This effect strongly impacts high speed amplifier topology selection We will focus on f t  Look at pages of Tom Lee s book for discussion on f max
12 Derivation of f t for MOS Device in Saturation i d R LARGE I D +i d i in v gs C gd C gs g m v gs g mb v s r o C db V bias i in C sb Assumption is that input is current, output of device is short circuited to a supply voltage  Note that voltage bias is required at gate The calculated value of f t is a function of this bias voltage
13 Derivation of f t for MOS Device in Saturation i d R LARGE I D +i d i in v gs C gd C gs g m v gs g mb v s r o C db V bias i in C sb
14 Derivation of f t for MOS Device in Saturation i d i in slope = 20 db/dec 1 f t f
15 Why is f t a Function of Voltage Bias? f t is a ratio of g m to gate capacitance  g m is a function of gate bias, while gate cap is not (so long as device remains biased) First order relationship between g m and gate bias:  The larger the gate bias, the higher the value for f t Alternately, f t is a function of current density  So f t maximized at max current density (and minimum L)
16 Speed of NMOS Versus PMOS Devices NMOS devices have much higher mobility than PMOS devices (in current, nonstrained, bulk CMOS processes)  Intuition: NMOS devices provide approximately 2.5 x g m for a given amount of capacitance and gate bias voltage  Also: NMOS devices provide approximately 2.5 x I d for a given amount of capacitance and gate bias voltage
17 Assumptions for High Speed Amplifier Analysis Assume that amplifier is loaded by an identical amplifier and by fixed wiring capacitance C tot = C out +C in +C fixed C in C out C in Amp Amp C fixed Intrinsic performance  Defined as the bandwidth achieved for a given gain when C fixed is negligible  Amplifier approaches intrinsic performance as its device sizes (and current) are increased In practice, optimal sizing (and power) of amplifier is roughly where C in +C out = C fixed
18 The Miller Effect Concerns impedances that connect from input to output of an amplifier Z in Z f Z out V in Input impedance: A v Amp V out Z L Output impedance:
19 Example: The Impact of Capacitance in Feedback Consider C gd in the MOS device as C f  Assume gain is negative C f Z in Z out V in A v Amp V out Z L Impact on input capacitance: Output impedance:
20 Amplifier Example CMOS Inverter Assume that we set V bias such that the amplifier nominal output is such that NMOS and PMOS transistors are all in saturation  Note: this topology VERY sensitive to bias errors M 2 M 4 v out v in M 1 C fixed M 3 V bias C tot = C db1 +C db2 + C gs3 +C gs4 + K(C ov3 +C ov4 ) + C fixed (+C ov1 +C ov2 ) Miller multiplication factor
21 Transfer Function of CMOS Inverter v out v in (g m1 +g m2 )(r o1 r o2 ) slope = 20 db/dec Low Bandwidth! 1 1 g m1 +g m2 2πC tot (r o1 r o2 ) 2πC tot f M 2 M 4 v out v in M 1 C fixed M 3 V bias C tot = C db1 +C db2 + C gs3 +C gs4 + K(C ov3 +C ov4 ) + C fixed (+C ov1 +C ov2 ) Miller multiplication factor
22 Add Resistive Feedback v out v in (g m1 +g m2 )(r o1 r o2 ) (g m1 +g m2 )R f slope = 20 db/dec Bandwidth extended and less sensitivity to bias offset 1 f 1 g m1 +g m2 2πC tot (r o1 r o2 ) 1 2πC tot 2πC tot R f Rf M 2 v out M 4 v in M 1 C fixed M 3 V bias C tot = C db1 +C db2 + C gs3 +C gs4 + K(C ov3 +C ov4 ) + C Rf /2 + C fixed (+C ov1 +C ov2 ) Miller multiplication factor
23 We Can Still Do Better We are fundamentally looking for high g m to capacitance ratio to get the highest bandwidth  PMOS degrades this ratio  Gate bias voltage is constrained M 2 M 4 Rf v out v in M 1 C fixed M 3 V bias C tot = C db1 +C db2 + C gs3 +C gs4 + K(C ov3 +C ov4 ) + C Rf /2 + C fixed (+C ov1 +C ov2 ) Miller multiplication factor
24 Take PMOS Out of the Signal Path Ibias V bias2 M 2 R f v out R f v out v in M1 C L v in M 1 C L V bias V bias Advantages  PMOS gate no longer loads the signal  NMOS device can be biased at a higher voltage Issue  PMOS is not an efficient current provider (I d /drain cap) Drain cap close in value to C gs  Signal path is loaded by cap of R f and drain cap of PMOS

29 Resistor Loaded Amplifier (Unsilicided Poly) V dd R L v out v in v in V bias I d vout C fixed M 1 M 2 C tot = C db1 +C RL /2 + C gs2 +KC ov2 + C fixed (+C ov1 ) Miller multiplication factor g m1 R L 1 1 2πR L C tot slope = 20 db/dec g m1 2πC tot f This is the fastest nonenhanced amplifier I ve found  Unsilicided poly is a pretty efficient current provider (i..e, has a good current to capacitance ratio)  Output swing can go all the way up to V dd Allows following stage to achieve high f t  Linear settling behavior (in contrast to NMOS load)
30 Implementation of Resistor Loaded Amplifier Typically implement using differential pairs V dd R 1 R 2 V o+ V o I bias /2 V in+ V in C fixed C fixed αi bias M 1 M 2 M 3 M 4 I bias M 5 M 6 M 7 Benefits  Selfbiased  Commonmode rejection Negative  More power than singleended version
31 The Issue of Velocity Saturation We classically assume that MOS current is calculated as Which is really  V dsat,l corresponds to the saturation voltage at a given length, which we often refer to as V It may be shown that  If V gs V T approaches LE sat in value, then the top equation is no longer valid We say that the device is in velocity saturation
32 Analytical Device Modeling in Velocity Saturation If L small (as in modern devices), than velocity saturation will impact us for even moderate values of V gs V T  Current increases linearly with V gs V T! Transconductance in velocity saturation:  No longer a function of V gs!
33 Example: Current Versus Voltage for 0.18µ Device I d V gs M 1 W L = 1.8µ 0.18µ 1.4 I d versus V gs I d (milliamps) V (Volts) gs
34 Example: G m Versus Voltage for 0.18µ Device I d V gs M 1 W L = 1.8µ 0.18µ 1 g m versus V gs g m (milliamps/volts) V (Volts) gs
35 Example: G m Versus Current Density for 0.18µ Device I d V gs M 1 W L = 1.8µ 0.18µ Transconductance versus Current Density 1 Transconductance (milliamps/volts) Current Density (microamps/micron)
36 How Do We Design the Amplifier? Highly inaccurate to assume square law behavior We will now introduce a numerical procedure based on the simulated g m curve of a transistor  A look at g m assuming square law device:  Observe that if we keep the current density (I d /W) constant, then g m scales directly with W This turns out to be true outside the squarelaw regime as well  We can therefore relate g m of devices with different widths given that have the same current density
37 A Numerical Design Procedure for Resistor Amp Step 1 V dd R V o R Vo+ Two key equations  Set gain and swing (singleended) I bias V in+ V in αi bias M 1 M 2 M 5 M 6 2I bias Equate (1) and (2) through R Can we relate this formula to a g m curve taken from a device of width W o?
38 A Numerical Design Procedure for Resistor Amp Step 2 We now know: Substitute (2) into (1) The above expression allows us to design the resistor loaded amp based on the g m curve of a representative transistor of width W o!
39 Example: Design for Swing of 1 V, Gain of 1 and 2 Transconductance (milliamps/volts) Assume L=0.18µ, use previous g m plot (W o =1.8µ) Transconductance versus Current Density A=2 A=1 g m (w o =1.8µ,I den ) Current Density  I den (microamps/micron) For gain of 1, current density = 250 µa/µm For gain of 2, current density = 115 µa/µm Note that current density reduced as gain increases!  f t effectively decreased
40 Example (Continued) Knowledge of the current density allows us to design the amplifier  Recall  Free parameters are W, I bias, and R (L assumed to be fixed) Given I den = 115 µa/µm (Swing = 1V, Gain = 2)  If we choose I bias = 300 µa Note that we could instead choose W or R, and then calculate the other parameters
41 How Do We Choose I bias For High Bandwidth? C tot = C out +C in +C fixed C in C out C in Amp Amp C fixed As you increase I bias, the size of transistors also increases to keep a constant current density  The size of C in and C out increases relative to C fixed To achieve high bandwidth, want to size the devices (i.e., choose the value for I bias ), such that  C in +C out roughly equal to C fixed
