This paper addresses a new approach to design a CMOS operational amplifier which provides a good tradeoff between high gain and strong immunity to electromagnetic interferences. The proposed amplifier is based on two main blocks: the first is a fully differential folded cascode with modified input pair and the second is a source cross coupled AB class buffer. Thanks to the folded cascode stage and to the symmetrical output buffer, the amplifier exhibits both intrinsic robustness to interferences and good amplifier performances. The circuit was fabricated in a 0.8- m n-well CMOS technology (AMS CYE process). Experimental results, in terms of electromagnetic interference (EMI) immunity, are presented and successfully compared with commercial amplifiers. Measurements carried out on the chip and the amplifier overall performances are provided along with the corresponding simulation results.

Abstract

This paper addresses a new approach to design a CMOS operational amplifier which provides a good tradeoff between high gain and strong immunity to electromagnetic interferences. The proposed amplifier is based on two main blocks: the first is a fully differential folded cascode with modified input pair and the second is a source cross coupled AB class buffer. Thanks to the folded cascode stage and to the symmetrical output buffer, the amplifier exhibits both intrinsic robustness to interferences and good amplifier performances. The circuit was fabricated in a 0.8- m n-well CMOS technology (AMS CYE process). Experimental results, in terms of electromagnetic interference (EMI) immunity, are presented and successfully compared with commercial amplifiers. Measurements carried out on the chip and the amplifier overall performances are provided along with the corresponding simulation results.
