We propposed a novel low-power programmable gain amplifier (PGA) consisting of switched capacitor circuit. The input transconductance, output transconductance and compensation capacitors are programed in order to keep both the bandwidth and the phase margin constant over a wide gain range. A 40 MSps PGA with 0 dB to 30 dB gain range is designed with 0.25 µm CMOS process, where simulated results show the minimum and maximum current consumption to be 11.0 mA and 28.6 mA respectively depending on PGA gain. Similarly, the minimum and maximum output referred RMS (Root Mean Square) noise voltages are 133.6 µVrms and 2.2 mVrms respectively.
