A low-power low-voltage OTA with rail-to-rail output is introduced. The proposed topology is based on the common current mirror OTA topology and provide gain enhancement without extra power consumption. Implemented in a standard 0.25/spl mu/m CMOS technology, the proposed OTA achieves 50 dB DC gain in 0.8 V supply voltage. The GBW is 1.2MHz and the static power consumption is 8/spl mu/W while driving 18pF load. The class AB operation increases the slew rate and still maintains low static biasing current. This topology is suitable for low-power low-voltage switched-capacitor application.
