We are pleased to present, in serial form, Chapter 9 of Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits, Fifth Edition by Paul R. Gray, Paul J. Hurst, Stephen H. Lewis and Robert G. Meyer
Often referred to as 'the standard text' for Analog Design, this book by two IEEE Fellows and their colleagues, all well-known analog designers, aims to provide a comprehensive treatment of analog integrated circuit analysis and design starting from the basics and through current industrial practices. Although written as an academic text, suitable for students with a grounding in analog design, its comprehensive coverage of bipolar, CMOS, as well as BiCMOS analog integrated-circuit design
would make it a worthwhile addition to most practicing analog engineer's bookshelves too.
Chapter 9 is entitled 'Frequency Response and Stability of Feedback Amplifiers' and covers the relationship between gain and bandwidth in feedback amplifiers, the theory of compensation, including compensation for two-stage MOS amplifiers ad single-stage CMOS op amps, among others. Later on in this chapter, Gray et al. will show how to calculate feedback amplifier stability using the root-locus technique.
There are five parts, which appear as follows:

Editor's note: In this recently updated edition (January, 2009), coverage of the bipolar 741 op amp has been replaced with a low-voltage bipolar op amp, the NE5234, and the authors have extended their use of SPICE. They note that this is because SPICE acts as a more accurate check on hand calculations, and also as a tool to examine complex circuit behaviour beyond the scope of hand analysis.
