1. A MOSFET=based differential amplifier is shown below. The resistor RSS is
the Thevenin equivalent resistance of the current source. It is needed for
small signal calculations.

a. What is the differential gain Ad = Vod/Vid. Vod = Vo1-Vo2.
b. What should be the value of Rss if the CMRR = 104? The CMRR is for
when the output is taken single-ended i.e. referenced with respect to
ground as are Vo1 and Vo2.

a. The dc power drawn from he bias supplies under quiescent conditions is 6 milliwatts.
The quiescent dc values of Vo1 = Vo2 = -8 V. Determine the value of RD.
b. Determine the allowab le ranage of Vicm. The voltage across the current source must
not drop below 2 V. Assume RSS is infinite for this step.
c. Determine the allowable range of Vid assuming a linearity of 99% or better (as
discussed in lecture).
d. What is the single-ended differential gain Ad = Vo2/Vid?
e. The CMRR of the circuit for single-ended outputs is to be 60 db. Determine the
minimum required value of RSS. Assume VA = infinite for this step.
