Abstract

We investigate, for the first time, the design and implementation of a high-slew rate op-amp in SiGe BiCMOS technology capable of operation across very wide temperature ranges, and down to deep cryogenic temperatures. We achieve the first monolithic op-amp (for any material system) capable of operating reliably down to 4.3 K. Two variants of the SiGe BiCMOS op-amp were implemented using alternative biasing schemes, and the effects of temperature on these biasing schemes, and their impact on the overall op-amp performance, is investigated.
