Constant Current Biasing - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Can anyone tell me how to do constant current biasing for integrated circuit amplifiers. I would perfer a reference or something. I'm sure there are different ways you can do it and i would like to see how they're done. While we're at it, also how to do constant Vbe biasing but not the standard resistive divider way. Current mirror won't because I can't bias my emitter because of swing issues. Thanks a lot.

Yes there is more than one way to bias an amplifier.
Here is an application note, which can be useful for your question:
