This paper examines the closed-loop characteristics of the basic CFOA, and in particular, the dynamic response. Additionally, it also examines the design and advantages of the CFOA regarding its ability to provide a significantly constant closed-loop bandwidth for closed-loop voltage gain. Secondly, the almost limitless slew–rate provided by the class AB input stage that makes it superior to the VOA counterpart. Additionally; this paper also concerns the definitions and measurements of the terminal parameters of the CFOA, regarded as a ‘black box’. It does not deal with the way that these parameters are related to the properties of the active passive and active components of a particular circuit configuration. Simulation is used in terminal parameter determination: this brings with it the facility of using test conditions that would not normally prevail in a laboratory test on silicon implementations of the CFOAs. Thus, we can apply 1mA and 1mV test signals from, respectively, infinite and zero source impedances that range in frequency from d.c to some tens of GHz. Also, we assume the existence of resistors with identical Ohmic value and very high value ideal capacitors. Where appropriate, practical test methods are referred to physical laboratory prototypes.
