This work exploits the well-known gm over ID methodology to develop a novel approach to optimize the design of regulated cascode amplifiers (RgC). The proposed design framework starts extracting a set of lookup tables describing the circuit's figures of merit as a function of the gm over ID ratio. Due to the feedback topology of the circuit, the… CONTINUE READING
