A High Performance Current Mirror for Low Voltage Mixed Mode Design
Ahlad Kumar

An ultra-low voltage current mirror based on flipped voltage follower technique capable of operating at 0.8V with low compliance voltages at input (≈0.3V) and output (≈0.2V) ports for input current of 200mA is presented. The proposed LVCM design has been verified using Smart Spice and Cadence Virtuoso Layout simulations based on model for 0.13μm technology. The proposed current mirror has wide input current range of starting 4nA to 350mA with maximum error of -6% at higher end of current and a bandwidth of 2.1 GHz.
