For comparison see NMOS Differential AmplifierFrom discussion of bjt physics, we havewhich, in turn, allows us to write
See an example of a two stage differential amplifier (source)If there is a small resistive mismatch, we can writeorwhich allows us to writeFor small differential voltage
For comparison see BJT Differential Amplifier
From our earlier discussion of mos physics, we haveIf we make the two devices identical we can writeand we know thatwhich allows us to writeWhen we square the bracket term, we get the quadratic equationwhich has the solutionsFinally, we obtain the normalized form for the transfer function for the differential amplifier.
where we have used from earlier analysis the result that
