A systematic design methodology for high-performance gain-boosted opamps (GBOs) is presented. The methodology allows the optimization of the GBO in terms of ac response and settling performance and is incorporated into an automatic computer-aided design (CAD) tool, called GBOPCAD. Analytic equations and heuristics are first used by GBOPCAD to obtain a sizing solution close to the global optimum. Then, simulated annealings are used by GBOPCAD to find the global optimum. A sample opamp is… CONTINUE READING
