Instructions to candidates
Answer ANY FIVE full questions.
Missing data may be suitably assumed.
1A.Find output resistance of the double cascode current sink designed to sink a current
of 20 A. Given that VDD = - VSS = 2.5 V,VGS = 1.2 V, Vth = 0.83 V, W/L=10 m / 5
m, n.Cox = 50 A/V2, = 0.06 V-1. Find the minimum voltage across the current
sink.

1B.Explain the channel length modulation.

1C. Discuss the need for Layout with width correction for current mirror circuits.(4+3+3)

2A.Explain the advantages of two-stage op-amp. Discuss the different two-stage op-amp
topologies with their merits and demerits. Why op-amps having more than two stages
are rarely used?

2B. In a NMOS CD amplifier with a current sink load, all transistors have W/L=100 m/

3C.State why long channel devices are used in analog design? (5+4+1)
4A.Calculate the small-signal voltage gain Av for NMOS (M1) CS stage with diode-
connected PMOS load (M2). Given that (W/L)1= 50/0.5, (W/L)2 = 10/0.5, n = 2.5 p
