The mirroring precision, output resistance and output swing have been used as figures of merit to evaluate the improvements achieved with the use of A-SC transistors. Two-dimensional numerical simulations have been also performed in order to further explore the advantages of A-SC transistor in common-source CMs. The obtained results have shown that the best mirroring precision has been obtained with larger channel lengths of the transistor near the source. Despite the worsened intrinsic mismatching presented by commonsource CMs implemented with A-SC transistors in comparison with single transistor CM, the A-SC structure has allowed larger output resistance, breakdown voltage and better mirroring precision.
