Hi guys,

How should I simulate the gm of the input rail-to-rail stage(since gm is dependent with the biasing of the opamp)? Thanks

Regards

Since transconductance is defined as ratio of change in output current to change in input voltage you should be able to aquire this from a simulation by applying 2 different voltages to the state and write down the resulting currents. After that you can just take the ratio of the difference between the currents to the ratio of the difference in the voltages you applied.

I would look at the extrema and center. Or step through
it more finely, even. Depending on whether you are looking
for spec-compliance or deeper/finer understanding.
