**Analogue

__Introduction__

This web site is a collection of papers on analog design. It's an ongoing work, so please check back from time to time to find out if there have been any additions.

There are several papers that address some pretty blatant misconceptions and, quite frankly, fundamentally main stream false notions on various technologies and theory.

__Tutorial Papers__

Bipolar Design Part 1 - The Basics

Bipolar Design Part 2 - Distortion

Bipolar Design Part 3 - Biasing

Current Feedback Myth - Voltage feedback amplifiers can be just as fast as current feedback amplifiers

CMOS Bandgap - Low noise, On point trim, high accuracy bandgap with no chopper.

Distortion With Feedback - More generalized than standard treatments, but a very simple approach

Feedback Stability - The only guaranteed way to make a small fortune, is to start with a large one, then lose some of it

LNA - Improved 10 GHz, R.F., Low Noise Amplifier Design Example

Noise Shaping - Noise shaping is error correction, the shaping bit is just what comes out of the wash

Operational Amplifier Design 1 - Deep sub-micron 1V, 45nm, 90dB, 100MHz, 0.35ma, two stage operational amplifier design example

Operational Amplifier Design 2 - Cascode compensation is not vastly faster than Miller compensation, contrary to some claims in the literature

Oscillator Loop Gain - Common Emitter and Emitter follower oscillators are, essentially, identical

Phase Noise - The standard ISF Hajimiri-Lee approach is fundamentally incorrect

Proportional To Temperature
Current Generator - How to *reliably* design a start-up circuit

Delta-Sigma ADC - The standard voltage mode description of noise shaping is fundamentally incorrect

Voltage Controlled Bipolar Transistor - Typical descriptions that the bipolar transistor is "current controlled" are fundamentally incorrect
