This paper presents a unity-gain amplifier architecture, which, unlike already known solutions, provides a theoretically zero gain error without requiring an infinitely large loop gain. The architecture is based on two amplifiers nested in a feedback configuration, which allows a straightforward complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) implementation. Performances are analytically evaluated and compared to those of the traditional solution under similar design settings. Simulations using a 0.35-mum CMOS process are found to be in agreement with theory, and Monte Carlo simulations have also shown the robustness of the proposed approach against process tolerances.
