Amplifier-for-signal-supply


Posted on Jan 14, 2013

This unity-gain follower amplifier has a CMOS p-channel input, an npn second-gain stage, and a CMOS inverter output. The IC building blocks are two CA3600E`s (CMOS transistor pairs) and a CA3046 npn transistor array. A zener-regulated leg provides bias for a 400-I`A p-channel source, feeding the input stage, which is terminated in an npn current mirror. The amplifier voltage-offset is nulled with the 10-K!l balance potentiometer. The second-stage current level is established by the 20-K!lload, and is selected to approximately theiirst-stage current level, to assure similar positive and negative slew rates.

The CMOS inverter portion forms the final output stage and is terminated in a 2-K!l load, a typical value used with monolithic op amps. Voltage gain is affected by the choice of load resistance value. The output stage of this amplifier is easily driven to within 1 mV of the negative supply voltage.
