Optimal design of CMOS current mode instrumentation amplifier using bio-inspired method for biomedical applications

Issa Sabiri, Hamid Bouyghf, Abdelhadi Raihani, Brahim Ouacha


Analog integrated circuits for biomedical applications require good performance. This paper presents an instrumentation amplifier (IA) design based on three complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) conveyors with an active resistor. This circuit offers the possibility to control the gain by voltage and current. We have designed the IA to minimize the parasitic resistance (Rx) with large bandwidth and high common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) using the artificial bee colony algorithm (ABC). The topology is simulated using 0.35µm CMOS technology parameters. The optimization problem is represented by an objective function that will be implemented using MATLAB script. The results were approved by the simulation using the advanced design system (ADS) tool. The simulation results were compared to the characteristics of some other instrumentation amplifiers exsisting in the literature. The circuit has a higher CMRR than other topologies.
