Abstract

A cascade connection of just two transistors realize high-swing, high-output impedance circuits in CMOS. This con- figuration can be applied to many different types of amplifiers, current sources and sinks and can be built using pro- cesses other than CMOS. The circuits works well in opamps and are designed to minimize area and power without losing performance.
