The RC clamp is usually connected to a big ESD transistor (the so called power clamp).
Whenever you get an ESD event, says between a supply and a ground, a lot of current will be forced into that supply, trying to find its way to the ground.
This huge current will trigger the ESD...
The formula for combining two resistors in Parallel R1 and R2 is: Req = 1/(1/R1 + 1/R2)
Indeed the output impedance of a diode-connected PMOS Rout is its output resistance in parallel with the inverse of its transconductance.
So your result is correct: consider ro as R1 in my formula, and...
To get a <1% error on a DC voltage (e.g. 1V), this means that your open-loop gain should be at least 100 (meaning 40dB). This would lead to a tolerated error or offset of 10mV maximum.
--> This could be done with 1 stage amplifier
Now if I understand correctly, your system is switching at...
For input impedance, why don't you apply a common mode voltage on the inputs of your OTA, and check the current that is drawn on this voltage source: this will give you the DC component of the input impedance, which should be in the tens of MegOhms for classical OTA.
Are you looking for AC...
This might not work depending on the strength of your left black box circuit. Can you give a little bit more details on this??
Moreover, in your design, once Vsignal is set to -Vsat, how do you reset your comparator?
Long and thin PCB traces are usually to avoid, because they tend to increase drastically track resistance.
Long wires on a PCB can also be considered as antennas, and will easily catch a lot of interferences/rubbish.
Moreover, long wires will have a bigger parasitic inductance, creating...
To me it doesnt look that you are doing a monte carlo simulation: you can see this in the toolbar "Single Run, Sweeps and Corners". This should be Monte Carlo Analysis
Then on the error you are getting, it seems you are having a network/server error. Are you running the job locally?
