this paper presents a novel fully differential (FD) ultra high common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) current operational amplifier (COA) with very low input impedance. Its FD structure that attenuates common mode signals over all stages grants ultra high CMRR and power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) that makes it suitable for mixed mode and accurate applications. Its performance is verified by HSPICE simulations using TSMC 0.18µm CMOS technology and ±0.75V supply voltage that indicate such outstanding results of 81.1dB gain,298MHz gain-bandwidth product, 64º phase margin, 28.2m&Omega input impedance, 159dB CMRR and PSRR+/PSRR- of 174dB/163dB all at low power consumption of 0.302mW.To study the robustness of the COA against technology and get such results close to measurement, Monte Carlo analysis is applied on both pre- layout and post layout simulations of the design. The results are as 73.29dB and 2.07MHz, 1.92&Omega, and150.35dB for Ai magnitude and bandwidth, Ri, and CMRR, respectively, in pre-layout case while change to 66.58dB and 1.44 MHz, 11.07 &Omega, and 147.10dB, for the same arrange, in post layout case. These measurement-like results thus, prove excellent practical performance of the proposed COA.
