I have two questions:
1. Do you think it's possible to use switched CMFB (for continuous-time circuits? The most obvious continuous time circuit is filter. Would the following stages of filter out any common-mode bounce? How much common-mode bounce would get converted to differential? Would it just appear as a offset or gain error or distortion?
2. How do you use switched capacitor CMFB for a two-stage amplifier? You can just apply the CMFB to the second stage, but the first stage would need an additional CMFB. Would settling suffer? You can modify the swit-cap CMFB to be inverting, but then it's parasitics might affect the common-mode offset.

1) The CMFB circuit wouldnt care, your circuit may or may not care depending on the common mode gain and bandwidth. The Differential transfer function would be different for the 2 states of the SW-CMFB circuits giving you mixing effect which would cause distortion (time variant).2)you would use 2 loops, an inner fast CT loop and an outer loop that nested the inner one.In general if you have schematics it is easier to answer questions.Best Regards
