    hi all,
    I calculated the frequency response of the CS and Cascode amplifiers
    using the time constants method. Here they are:


    f = ( 2*PI*( Rs*Cgs + Rs*Cgs*(1+Av) + Rd*(Cdb+Cl)) )^-1


    f = ( 2*PI*(Rs*Cgs1 + Cds1*2*Rs + Rd*(Cgd2+Cdb2*Cl) + 1/gm2*(Cdb1+Cgs2) )^-1


    Rs = resistance of the imput signal
    Rd = resistance under Vdd
    Cl = load capacity

    I calculated f using

    Rs = 50ohm
    Rd = 600ohm
    W = 592 micron

    and I obtained

    CS => f = 1.98EE+08
    Cascode => 2.08EE+08

    and I think that's a really little difference! where did I make the mistake?

    thank you very much!

    I posted my work about Cascode configuration in sci.electronics.basics
    group (maybe it's better if you answer there, sorry for the mess..)
