Common-Mode Induced Distortion in Differential Stages
The characteristics of differential stages has been investigated. It has been found that common-mode signals induce even-order harmonics, and that this nonlinearity is dependent upon the differential stage's constant current generator. This may affect the overall characteristics of a feedback amplifier and its compensation requirements. It is also shown that the usual feedback model no longer accurately describes the amplifier's performance.
