Paper Abstract

We have designed dual lock-in amplifier (LIA) circuits in 0.18 μm CMOS technology for antibody-antigens (IgG) detection using optoelectronics. The purpose of this work is to develop a lock-in amplifier integrated circuit (IC) using the dual phase scheme that detect the phase difference between the input signal and the reference signal although a phase shifter is absent. Our LIA consist of high gain amplifier, signal amplifier, and phase sensitive detection. Amplifier structure is based on two-stage differential operational amplifier (op-amp) with RC Miller compensation technique. By using the RC Miller compensation technique, we obtain 60° the phase margin of the op-amp. Here, the resistor works for increasing the unit gain bandwidth and the capacitor works for increasing the phase margin. The lock-in amplifier consume 8.6 mA from a 1.8 V supply.
