High DC Gain...

public

Description:

The aim is to design a single ended High DC gain Folded Cascode Opamp for LDO or Bandgap Reference. This Opamp can be used for LDO or Bandgap Reference.

Design Goals:

>70 dB DC gain

>60 Degree Phase Margin

Power Consumption < 10mW 

Unity Gain Bandwidth > 10MHz 

VDD = 1.8 V

I designed similar Single ended Folded Cascode with 65nm TSMC process and 22FDX Global Foundaries FDSOI process. This opamp can be implemened another blocks such as LDO or Bandgap.
