A power-efficient rail-to-rail CMOS analogue voltage buffer is presented. It consists of a complementary pair of super source followers, but a bulk-driven input device with the replica-biased scheme is utilised to eliminate the DC level shift, quasi-floating gate transistors to achieve class-AB performance, and a current switch which shifts between the complementary pair to allow rail-to-rail operation. The proposed buffer has been designed for a 0.35 µm CMOS technology to operate at a 1.8 V supply voltage. Simulated results are provided to demonstrate the total harmonic distortion for a 1.6 Vpp 100 kHz sine wave with a 68pF load is as low as ?46 dB, while the static current consumption remains under 8 µA.
