Exemplary embodiments are directed to a current mirror and method of operation thereof. A method may include biasing a first transistor with a voltage at a gate of a second transistor to cause the first transistor to conduct, wherein the first transistor has a source operably coupled to a drain of a third transistor and a drain operably coupled to a gate of the third transistor. The method may also include providing an input current at the drain of the third transistor. Moreover, the method may include decreasing or increasing a voltage at the gate of the first transistor when a voltage at the gate of the second transistor and the drain of the first transistor respectively decreases or increases. Furthermore, the method may include generating an output current in a drain of a fourth transistor having a gate operably coupled to the gate of the third transistor.
