This letter presents a 0.5 V low-voltage op-amp in a standard 0.18 µm CMOS process for switched-capacitor circuits. Unlike other two-stage 0.5 V op-amp architectures, this op-amp consists of CMOS inverters that utilize floating voltage sources and forward body bias for obtaining high-speed operation. And two improved common-mode rejection circuits are well combined to achieve low power and chip area reduction. Simulation results indicate that the op-amp has an open-loop gain of 62 dB, and a high unity gain bandwidth of 56 MHz. The power consumption is only 350 µW.
