3 High Frequency Roll-off of Amplifier As frequency of operation increases, the gain of amplifier decreases. This chapter analyzes this problem.
Example: Human Voice I Natural human voice spans a frequency range from 20Hz to 20KHz, however conventional telephone system passes frequencies from 400Hz to 3.5KHz. Therefore phone conversation differs from face-to-face conversation. CH 11 Frequency Response4 Natural Voice Telephone System
Example: Human Voice II CH 11 Frequency Response5 MouthRecorderAir MouthEarAir Skull Path traveled by the human voice to the voice recorder Path traveled by the human voice to the human ear Since the paths are different, the results will also be different.
Example: Video Signal Video signals without sufficient bandwidth become fuzzy as they fail to abruptly change the contrast of pictures from complete white into complete black. CH 11 Frequency Response6 High BandwidthLow Bandwidth
Gain Roll-off: Simple Low-pass Filter In this simple example, as frequency increases the impedance of C 1 decreases and the voltage divider consists of C 1 and R 1 attenuates V in to a greater extent at the output. CH 11 Frequency Response7
8 Gain Roll-off: Common Source The capacitive load, C L, is the culprit for gain roll-off since at high frequency, it will steal away some signal current and shunt it to ground.
CH 11 Frequency Response9 Frequency Response of the CS Stage At low frequency, the capacitor is effectively open and the gain is flat. As frequency increases, the capacitor tends to a short and the gain starts to decrease. A special frequency is ω=1/(R D C L ), where the gain drops by 3dB.
CH 11 Frequency Response10 Example: Figure of Merit This metric quantifies a circuits gain, bandwidth, and power dissipation. In the bipolar case, low temperature, supply, and load capacitance mark a superior figure of merit.
Example: Relationship between Frequency Response and Step Response CH 11 Frequency Response11 The relationship is such that as R 1 C 1 increases, the bandwidth drops and the step response becomes slower.
CH 11 Frequency Response12 Bode Plot When we hit a zero, ω zj, the Bode magnitude rises with a slope of +20dB/dec. When we hit a pole, ω pj, the Bode magnitude falls with a slope of -20dB/dec
CH 11 Frequency Response13 Example: Bode Plot The circuit only has one pole (no zero) at 1/(R D C L ), so the slope drops from 0 to -20dB/dec as we pass ω p1.

CH 11 Frequency Response15 Pole Identification Example II
CH 11 Frequency Response16 Circuit with Floating Capacitor The pole of a circuit is computed by finding the effective resistance and capacitance from a node to GROUND. The circuit above creates a problem since neither terminal of C F is grounded.
CH 11 Frequency Response17 Millers Theorem If A v is the gain from node 1 to 2, then a floating impedance Z F can be converted to two grounded impedances Z 1 and Z 2.
CH 11 Frequency Response18 Miller Multiplication With Millers theorem, we can separate the floating capacitor. However, the input capacitor is larger than the original floating capacitor. We call this Miller multiplication.
CH 11 Frequency Response19 Example: Miller Theorem
High-Pass Filter Response The voltage division between a resistor and a capacitor can be configured such that the gain at low frequency is reduced. CH 11 Frequency Response20
Example: Audio Amplifier In order to successfully pass audio band frequencies (20 Hz-20 KHz), large input and output capacitances are needed. CH 11 Frequency Response21
Capacitive Coupling vs. Direct Coupling Capacitive coupling, also known as AC coupling, passes AC signals from Y to X while blocking DC contents. This technique allows independent bias conditions between stages. Direct coupling does not. Capacitive Coupling Direct Coupling CH 11 Frequency Response22

CH 11 Frequency Response24 High-Frequency Bipolar Model At high frequency, capacitive effects come into play. C b represents the base charge, whereas C and C je are the junction capacitances.
CH 11 Frequency Response25 High-Frequency Model of Integrated Bipolar Transistor Since an integrated bipolar circuit is fabricated on top of a substrate, another junction capacitance exists between the collector and substrate, namely C CS.
CH 11 Frequency Response26 Example: Capacitance Identification
CH 11 Frequency Response27 MOS Intrinsic Capacitances For a MOS, there exist oxide capacitance from gate to channel, junction capacitances from source/drain to substrate, and overlap capacitance from gate to source/drain.
CH 11 Frequency Response28 Gate Oxide Capacitance Partition and Full Model The gate oxide capacitance is often partitioned between source and drain. In saturation, C 2 ~ C gate, and C 1 ~ 0. They are in parallel with the overlap capacitance to form C GS and C GD.
CH 11 Frequency Response29 Example: Capacitance Identification
CH 11 Frequency Response30 Transit Frequency Transit frequency, f T, is defined as the frequency where the current gain from input to output drops to 1.
Example: Transit Frequency Calculation CH 11 Frequency Response31
Analysis Summary The frequency response refers to the magnitude of the transfer function. Bodes approximation simplifies the plotting of the frequency response if poles and zeros are known. In general, it is possible to associate a pole with each node in the signal path. Millers theorem helps to decompose floating capacitors into grounded elements. Bipolar and MOS devices exhibit various capacitances that limit the speed of circuits. CH 11 Frequency Response32
High Frequency Circuit Analysis Procedure Determine which capacitor impact the low-frequency region of the response and calculate the low-frequency pole (neglect transistor capacitance). Calculate the midband gain by replacing the capacitors with short circuits (neglect transistor capacitance). Include transistor capacitances. Merge capacitors connected to AC grounds and omit those that play no role in the circuit. Determine the high-frequency poles and zeros. Plot the frequency response using Bodes rules or exact analysis. CH 11 Frequency Response33
Frequency Response of CS Stage with Bypassed Degeneration In order to increase the midband gain, a capacitor C b is placed in parallel with R s. The pole frequency must be well below the lowest signal frequency to avoid the effect of degeneration. CH 11 Frequency Response34

CH 11 Frequency Response42 Input Impedance of CE and CS Stages
Low Frequency Response of CB and CG Stages As with CE and CS stages, the use of capacitive coupling leads to low-frequency roll-off in CB and CG stages (although a CB stage is shown above, a CG stage is similar). CH 11 Frequency Response43
CH 11 Frequency Response44 Frequency Response of CB Stage
CH 11 Frequency Response45 Frequency Response of CG Stage Similar to a CB stage, the input pole is on the order of f T, so rarely a speed bottleneck.
