What is the difference between "current sharing" and Quasi complementary?

Hello Hugh,

Long time no see ,

I tend to differ here, in the above examples given by Alex, the output impedances are highly balanced if compared to the usual quasi-complementary, because of the feedback. Also if the outputs are configured as VCCS then also you will have balanced case of impedences.

Correct me if i am wrong, but after having simulated the VCCS stage[my own version] in open loop, i am not getting H2 which is higher than H3.

In the current sharing figure: The Drain of Lower output mosfet makes connection with the Source of P-channel input driver mosfet, which in a way provides local negative feedback and linearizes the full output stage.
