We have now derived the basic operation of the PN junction in forward and reverse bias We will now develop a small signal model which can be used in Spice to simulate the behavior of the device in a circuit. We will also address some issues of large signal behavior. Large signal models will not be dealt with extensively in this course and often have to be developed to address specific applications.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
