This paper presents design of a two-stage folded cascode amplifier with CMOS Technology. Maximum DC gain is the important required factor for analog and mixed signal circuits.The proposed circuit is designed to achieve more than 100 db and the obtained DC gain is 107.615 db. Phase margin is measured as \(62.65^{\circ }\). The power is measured as 1.97 mW. The proposed circuit is developed and performed with the technology of SCL 180 nm cadence tool. The designed values are compared with the system performance.
