Stability Issues and Resolutions for High Speed Fully Differential Amplifiers (FDAs), Insight #8

The most recent VFA FDAs focus on lower power, precision, solutions more aimed at Successive Approximation Register (SAR) and delta sigma ADC support. Those will be focus in this FDA stability discussion - but the concepts are backward compatible to the earliest VFA FDAs.

Here, an updated Loop Gain (LG) simulation approach will be first detailed and then used to show paths into, and out of, low Phase Margin (PM) conditions for a current feedback amplifier.

Probably no single issue faces more high-speed signal path designers (and supplier support teams) than the risk of instability in higher speed op amps and fully differential amplifiers (FDA).

The more recent Fully Differential Amplifiers (FDA) offer both CFA and VFA versionsThe CFA based versions will also have poor DC accuracy while more recent “precision” VFA based FDAs can provide much improved DC accuracy. Those VFA-based FDAs do come with some added DC error sources beyond the typical op amp terms that will be described here

Some years back, an excellent blog appeared on EDN stepping through common issues and questions surrounding lower speed Voltage Feedback Amplifiers (VFA). A wider discussion of the unique issues that come with higher speed op amps will be the intent here

There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
