ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Midterm #2 results (undergrad. scores only):
    • N=73; mean=63; median=63.5; std.dev.=8.42
  • You may pick up your exam during any TA office hour.
    • Regrade requests must be made before you leave with your exam.
  • The list of misunderstood/forgotten points has been updated.

OUTLINE

  • BJT Differential Amplifiers (cont’d)

effect of finite tail impedance
Effect of Finite Tail Impedance
  • If the tail current source is not ideal, then when an input common-mode voltage is applied, the currents in Q1 and Q2 and hence the output common-mode voltage will change.
effect of input cm noise ideal tail current
Effect of Input CM Noise Ideal Tail Current
  • There is no effect of the input CM noise at the output.
effect of input cm noise non ideal tail current
Effect of Input CM NoiseNon-Ideal Tail Current
  • The single-ended outputs are corrupted by the input CM noise.
comparison
Comparison
  • The differential output voltage signal is the same for both cases.

 For small input CM noise, the differential pair is not affected.

cm to dm conversion gain a cm dm
CM to DM Conversion; gain ACM-DM
  • If finite tail impedance and asymmetry (e.g. in load resistance) are both present, then the differential output signal will contain a portion of the input common-mode signal.
common mode rejection ratio
Common-Mode Rejection Ratio
  • CMRR is the ratio of the wanted amplified differential input signal to the unwanted converted input common-mode noise that appears at the output.
differential to single ended conversion
Differential to Single-Ended Conversion
  • Many circuits require a differential to single-ended conversion.
  • This topology is not very good; its most critical drawback is supply noise corruption, since no common-mode cancellation mechanism exists. Also, we lose half of the voltage signal.
a better alternative
… A Better Alternative
  • This circuit topology performs differential to single-ended conversion with no loss of gain.
active load
Active Load
  • With a current mirror as the load, the signal current produced by Q1 can be replicated onto Q4.
  • This type of load is different from the conventional “static load” and is called an “active load.”
differential pair with active load
Differential Pair with Active Load
  • The input differential pair decreases the current drawn from RL by I, and the active load pushes an extra I into RL by current mirror action; these effects enhance each other.
active load vs static load
Active Load vs. Static Load
  • The load in the circuit on the left responds to the input signal and enhances the single-ended output, whereas the load in the circuit on the right does not.
