In this paper, two types of improved CMRR CMOS OAs, N type and P type, without common-mode feedback and the cascode current mirrors, are proposed. The CMRR of proposed OAs are enhanced by compensating variations in tail bias current, caused by a common mode input signal, at the differential input stage, by means of feedforward controlled current source. Simulation results show that the CMRR of the proposed OAs are 20dB higher than that of conventional OAs.
