2 BJT Differential Amplifiers (6/4/00) Page CHARACTERIZATION AND DEFINITIONS What is a Differential Amplifier? A differential amplifier is an amplifier that amplifies the difference between two voltages and rejects the average or common mode value of the two voltages. Symbol for a differential amplifier: v 1 v v OUT Fig. 5.1A Differential and common mode voltages: v 1 and v are called singleended voltages. They are voltages referenced to ac ground. The differentialmode input voltage, v ID, is the voltage difference between v 1 and v. The commonmode input voltage, v IC, is the average value of v 1 and v. v ID = v 1 v and v IC = v 1 v v 1 = v IC 0.5v ID and v = v IC 0.5v ID v ID v OUT = A VD v ID ± A VC v IC = A VD (v 1 v ) ± A VC v 1 v v where v ID IC v OUT A VD = differentialmode voltage gain A VC = commonmode voltage gain Fig. 5.1B ECE 4430 Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems P.E. Allen, 000

3 BJT Differential Amplifiers (6/4/00) Page 3 Differential Amplifier Definitions Common mode rejection rato (CMRR) CMRR = A VD A VC CMRR is a measure of how well the differential amplifier rejects the commonmode input voltage in favor of the differentialinput voltage. Input commonmode range (ICMR) The input commonmode range is the range of commonmode voltages over which the differential amplifier continues to sense and amplify the difference signal with the same gain. Typically, the ICMR is defined by the commonmode voltage range over which all MOSFETs remain in the saturation region and all BJTs remain in the active region. Output offset voltage (V OS (out)) The output offset voltage is the voltage which appears at the output of the differential amplifier when the input terminals are connected together. Input offset voltage (V OS (in) = V OS ) The input offset voltage is equal to the output offset voltage divided by the differential voltage gain. V OS = V OS (out) A VD ECE 4430 Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems P.E. Allen, 000

11 BJT Differential Amplifiers (6/4/00) Page 11 Common Mode Rejection Ratio (CMRR) The common mode rejection ratio is a measure of the differential amplifier s ability to reject the common mode signal and amplify the differential mode signal. A dm CMRR = A = v o1 /v id cm v o1 /v = ic g m1 R EE β o1 R g m1 R EE = C V t r π1 (1β o1 )R EE Thus, the larger the input transconductance or R EE, the larger the common mode rejection ratio.

Consider the following: (max) Q v CE (sat) V BE1 v BE (min) Q v CE (sat) V BE1 v BE V Bias Q3 Maximum Input Common Mode Voltage: (max) = 0.5 v CE1 (sat)v BE1 Q3 V Bias v CE (sat) BJTDA03 Minimum Input Common Mode Voltage: (min) = v CE3 (sat)v BE1 ECE 4430 Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems P.E. Allen, 000

13 BJT Differential Amplifiers (6/4/00) Page 13 Slew Rate of the BJT Differential Amplifier Slew rate is a voltage rate limit due to the fact that the current available to charge a capacitor is constant. Slew rate = SR = dv C dt = i C C where i C and v C are the current through and voltage across a capacitor C. A differential amplifier that has a capacitive load will experience slew rate which is seen as follows: R v C OD Situation at C s i C1 ic C C s v o OD 0 Q v i1 <<0 v BE1 v BE v i >>0 C s i Cs i C1 =0 v C1 v OD 0 vc C o i Co Q v i1 <<0 v BE1 v BE v i >>0 i Cs i C = C s BJTDA09A Note that the current in is 0 and Q is. Therefore, the initial value of i Co is i Co = 0.5 i Cs. If we define the slew rate across C o as SR = i Co C, then i Cs = 0.5SR C s = i Co o C C s, i.e. dv C1 o dt = 0.5 dv OD dt SR = C i Cs o C = o C SR C s o C SR 1 C s o C = o C SR = o 0.5 C o 0.5C s = C o C s ECE 4430 Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems P.E.
