A high-precision low-voltage adaptively biased (AB) low-dropout regulator (LDR) with extended loop bandwidth is proposed. The multistage output-capacitor-free LDR is stabilized by Miller compensation and Q-reduction techniques to reduce the required minimum load current. Adaptive biasing is achieved by using direct current feedback from a simple current mirror. The dynamics of both the main feedback loop (MFL) and the adaptive biasing loop are thoroughly analyzed. Tradeoffs between the adaptive… CONTINUE READING
