Figure 1 Push-pull MOSFET power amplifier circuit

Part 1

First we know from the question that these two MOSFETs are matched, the circuit is

in symmetrical situation which is

and

, so when V in =0V, we can assume that there is no output voltage or current. The current just goes from the bottom all the way to the top.

,

Now, we can treat the Source terminal as the common point (ground). Then we can work out the V GS,P , V GS,N , V DS,P and V DS,N .

Because of we can simply get

, so both transistors are in the saturation mode, then from the formula which is

(

) (

)

(

)

and we can use the same way to work out

.

So it can be proved that there is no output.

From above calculation, we can easily define this circuit is a class AB power amplifier based on there is current flow through the circuit without putting the input signal.

Part 2

Now, we need to keep both transistors in saturation mode to work out the limitation of the V out.

From the formula:

, we know:

Simplify it, we can get

Which is same as

 So When , we firstly assume the P-type MOSFET is switched off. So the

current go through the N-type MOSFET will all go across the load resistor.

 Use the formula in the saturation mode ( ) ( ) which also can be written as ( ) ( ) ------- (1) From the circuit we know that ( ) ( )

So plug (2) and (3) to (1), we can get the

and

Note: we actually get two results from the quadratic equation, but the one has been removed is not suitable for the situation. It can be easily proved that the V out based on that one is even bigger than the V SS .

Then, we consider the P-type:

, then

(

)

So

which can prove that the p-type MOSFET has been switched off.

Note: if u assume there is current go through the P-type MOSFET, it will cause the

V out smaller than 2.972, hence the is definitely switched off.

, so p-type MOSFET

Finally, because of the symmetry of these circuit and also the MOSFET, we can use the same method to get the

) which is the maximum input to be in saturation

Hence we get the sine wave output with peak voltage is 2.972V, we can get:

To calculate the power dissipation on the two transistors, we can do it based on circuit on the bias point:

Because the symmetry, we can get:

So the total power dissipation on two transistors is:

Then, we just add dissipation power and output power to get the total DC input power:

Finally, the efficiency should be:

The above figure 4 shows the drain current of NMOS and PMOS which are the same at bias point that means no current is flow through the load. The figure below represents the simulation of V GS and V DS of both MOSFET at bias point.

Figure 8 Simulation for the power dissipation in the load resistor

To get the power dissipation in the load on Pspice, we use the formula

RMS(V(out))*RMS(I(R1)).
