This paper describes a novel two-stage fullydifferential CMOS amplifier comprising two self-biased inverter stages, with optimum compensation and high efficiency. Although it relies on a class A topology, it is shown through simulations, that it achieves the highest efficiency of its class and comparable to the best class AB amplifiers. Due to the selfbiasing, a low variability in the DC gain over process, temperature, and supply is achieved. A detailed circuit analysis, a design methodology for optimization and the most relevant simulation results are presented, together with a final comparison among state-of-the-art amplifiers.
