Flipped Voltage Follower Ddesign Technique for Maximised Linear Operation
The results of comparative DC simulation tests confirm that a proposed modification to the feedback circuit of a Flipped Voltage Follower (FVF), to produce a type of ‘Folded’ Flipped Voltage Follower (FFVF), is capable of maximising the linear DC operating range for given values of supply rail voltage and operating current.
