Large-Signal Performance of the Basic Gain Stages in Analog ICs
The basic stages of analog integrated circuits are the emitter-coupled pair (ECP) and the emitter follower (EF) for bipolar circuits and the sourcecoupled pair (SCP) and the source follower (SF) for MOS circuits. In the next several chapters, these basic stages are examined from the standpoint of their large-signal performance. Of particular interest is the distortion produced in the output waveforms relative to the inputs. In a later chapter, available power output and efficiency of dc power conversion are considered for output stages.
