Distortion analysis of Miller-compensated three-stage amplifiers

  title={Distortion analysis of Miller-compensated three-stage amplifiers},
  author={Salvatore Omar Cannizzaro and Gaetano Palumbo and Salvatore Pennisi},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers},
This paper proposes a theoretical approach for evaluating distortion in the frequency domain of three-stage amplifiers adopting two commonly used compensation techniques, namely the nested Miller (NM) and the reversed NM. The analysis is based on appropriate amplifier modeling and on the assumption that the nonlinearity generated by each stage is static. Calculations are thus greatly simplified avoiding complex methods based on the Volterra series. Only dominant contributions need to be taken… CONTINUE READING
