Problem 1
Consider the amplifier below, where (W/L)1-4=10 and Iss=I1=100A. Estimate the poles for
differential gain at nodes X and Y by multiplying the small-signal resistance and capacitance to
ground. Assume Cx=Cy=0.5pF. Find the transfer function of the amplifier and find the
frequency such that the phase of the transfer function is -120.

Problem 3
Five different CMOS differential amplifier circuits are shown, assuming =0. First, write by
inspection the approximate small signal output resistance, rout, seen looking back into each
amplifier. Then use the intuitive approach of finding the small signal current caused by the
application of a small signal input, vin, and find the approximate small signal differential voltage
gain, vout/vin. Your answers should be in terms of gmi and goi (roi), where i = 1 to 8 for rout, and in
terms of gmi, where i = 1 to 8, and rout for vout/vin.
