#### Op Amps: Design, Application, and Troubleshooting

by David Terrell

OP Amps deliberately straddles that imaginary line between the technician and engineering worlds. Topics are carefully addressed on three levels: operational overview, numerical analysis, and design procedures. Troubleshooting techniques are presented that rely on the application of fundamental electronics principles. Systematic methods are shown that can be used to diagnose defects in many kinds of circuits that employ operational amplifiers.

One of the book’s greatest strengths is the easy-to-read conversational writing style. The author speaks directly to the student in a manner that encourages learning. This book explains the technical details of operational amplifier circuits in clear and understandable language without sacrificing technical depth.

- Easy-to-read conversational style communicates procedures an technical details in simple language
- Three levels of technical material: operational overview, manericall analysis, and design procedures
- Mathematics limited to algebraic manipulation

#### Design Criteria for Low Distortion in Feedback Opamp Circuits

by Bjørnar Hernes, Trond Sæther

Broadband opamps for multi-channel communication systems have strong demands on linearity performance. When these opamps are integrated in deep sub-micron CMOS technologies, the signal-swing has to occupy a large part of the rather low supply voltage to maintain the signal-to-noise-ratio. To obtain opamps with low distortion it is necessary to do a thorough analysis of the nonlinear behaviour of such circuits and this is the main subject of Design Criteria for Low Distortion in Feedback Opamp Circuits.

The biasing of each transistor in the circuit is a major issue and is addressed in this work. It is important to bias the transistor such that the distortion is low and stable in the entire range of its terminal voltages. This will ensure high linearity and robustness against variations in circuit conditions such as power supply voltage, bias current and process variations.

#### Design of Low-Voltage CMOS Switched-Opamp Switched-Capacitor Systems

by Vincent S.L. Cheung, Howard Cam H. Luong

Demand for low-power low-voltage integrated circuits (ICs) has rapidly grown due to the increasing importance of portable equipment in all market segments including telecommunications, computers, and consumer electronics. The need for low-voltage ICs is further motivated by CMOS technology scaling that requires low supply voltages for device reliability. On the other hand, switched-capacitor (SC) circuits, which have been well known for high accuracy and low distortion, have also become increasingly attractive for low-voltage, low-power, and even high-frequency applications. Switched-opamp (SO) technique has been proposed to enable SC circuits to operate with a single 1-V supply in standard CMOS processes without any clock voltage multiplier or low-threshold devices. However, the existing SO technique requires the opamps to turn off after their integrating phases and thus is not suitable for most of the switched-capacitor systems.

In Design of Low-Voltage CMOS Switched-Opamp Switched-Capacitor Systems, the emphasis is put on the design and development of advanced switched-opamp architectures and techniques for low-voltage low-power switched-capacitor (SC) systems. Specifically, the book presents a novel multi-phase switched-opamp technique together with new system architectures that are critical in improving significantly the performance of switched-capacitor systems at low supply voltages:

*A generic fast-settling double-sampling SC biquadratic filter architecture is proposed to achieve high-speed operation for SC circuits.

*A low-voltage double-sampling (DS) finite-gain-compensation (FGC) technique is employed to realize high-resolution SD modulator using only low-DC-gain opamps to maximize the speed and to reduce power dissipation.

*A family of novel power-efficient SC filters and SD modulators are built based on using only half-delay SC integrators.

*Single-opamp-based SC systems are designed for ultra-low-power applications. In addition, on the circuit level, a fast-switching methodology is proposed for the design of the switchable opamps to achieve switching frequency up to 50 MHz at 1V, which is improved by about ten times compared to the prior arts.

Finally, detailed design considerations, architecture choices, and circuit implementation of five chip prototypes are presented to illustrate potential applications of the proposed multi-phase switched-opamp technique to tackle with and to achieve different stringent design corners such as high-speed, high-integration-level and ultra-low-power consumption at supply voltages of 1V or lower in standard CMOS processes.

#### Operational Amplifiers

by Johan Huijsing

High-frequency compensation techniques are presented for all nine configurations. Special emphasis is placed on low-power low-voltage architectures with rail-to-rail input and output ranges.

Operational Amplifiers – Theory and Design also develops on the theme of the design of fully differential operational amplifiers and operational floating amplifiers. In addition, the characterization of operational amplifiers by macromodels and error matrices is presented, together with measurement techniques for their parameters.

Carefully structured and enriched by numerous figures, problems and simulation exercises the book is ideal for the purposes of self-study and self-evaluation.
