The performance of the current feedback op-amps (CFOAs) is very much determined by the input stage of CFOAs, including common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR). Two new CFOAs topologies are presented in this article: one topology uses a cascoding technique, and the second one uses a bootstrapping technique, both of which provide a much better CMRR and lower DC offset voltage than the conventional CFOAs. Moreover, the new CFOAs design exhibits an extended high frequency bandwidth, with a gain accuracy improvement. Applications requiring constant bandwidth with variable (closed loop) gain will benefit from the proposed topologies.
