EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 6 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Effect of Input CM Noise Non-Ideal Tail Current • The single-ended outputs are corrupted by the input CM noise. EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 7 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Comparison Ideal Tail Current Non-Ideal Tail Current • The differential output voltage signal is the same for both cases. For small input CM noise, the differential pair is not affected. EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 8 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley CM to DM Conversion; gain ACM-DM • If finite tail impedance and asymmetry (e.g. in load resistance) are both present, then the differential output signal will contain a portion of the input common-mode signal.

CMRR EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 11 ADM ACM DM Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Differential to Single-Ended Conversion • Many circuits require a differential to single-ended conversion. • This topology is not very good; its most critical drawback is supply noise corruption, since no common-mode cancellation mechanism exists. Also, we lose half of the voltage signal. EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 12 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley … A Better Alternative • This circuit topology performs differential to single-ended conversion with no loss of gain. vout g m ro, NPN ro, PNP vin1 vin2 EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 13 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Active Load • With a current mirror as the load, the signal current produced by Q1 can be replicated onto Q4. • This type of load is different from the conventional “static load” and is called an “active load.” EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 14 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Differential Pair with Active Load • The input differential pair decreases the current drawn from RL by I, and the active load pushes an extra I into RL by current mirror action; these effects enhance each other. EE105 Fall 2007 Lecture 23, Slide 15 Prof. Liu, UC Berkeley Active Load vs. Static Load • The load in the circuit on the left responds to the input signal and enhances the single-ended output, whereas the load in the circuit on the right does not.
