OUTLINE

• Common-gate stage
• Source follower

Common-Gate Amplifier Stage
• An increase in Vin decreases VGS and hence decreases ID.
• The voltage drop across RD decreases  Vout increases
• The small-signal voltage gain (Av) is positive.
Operation in Saturation Region
• For M1 to operate in saturation, Vout cannot fall below Vb-VTH.

For l = 0:

The output impedance of a CG stage with source resistance is identical to that of CS stage with degeneration.

determining output resistance, Rout

CG Stage with Biasing
• R1 and R2 establish the gate bias voltage.
• R3 provides a path for the bias current of M1 to flow.
CG Stage with Gate Resistance
• For low signal frequencies, the gate conducts no current.

 Gate resistance does not affect the gain or I/O impedances.

Source Follower Stage

Equivalent circuit

Source Follower Example
• In this example, M2 acts as a current source.
Rout of Source Follower
• The output impedance of a source follower is relatively low, whereas the input impedance is infinite (at low frequencies); thus, it is useful as a voltage buffer.

Small-signal analysis circuit for

determining output resistance, Rout

Source Follower with Biasing
• RG sets the gate voltage to VDD; RS sets the drain current.

(Solve the quadratic equation to obtain the value of ID.)

Assuming l = 0:

Supply-Independent Biasing
• If Rs is replaced by a current source, the drain current ID becomes independent of the supply voltage VDD.
