High-Performance CMOS Current Mirrors: Application to Linear Voltage-to-Current Converter Used for Two-Stage Operational Amplifier

In this paper, the authors present two schemes of high performance CMOS current mirror, one of them is used for Operational Trans-conductance Amplifier (OTA) in analog VLSI systems. The linearity, output impedance, bandwidth and accuracy are the most parameters to determine the performance of the current mirror. Here a comparison of two architectures based on same architecture of the amplifier is presented. This comparison includes: linearity, output impedance, bandwidth and accuracy. These two circuits are validated with simulation in technology AMS 0.35 um. An operational amplifier based on the adapted current mirror is proposed. Its frequency analysis with large bandwidth is validated with the same technology.
