Unformatted text preview: ) (Q ox / C ox ) = -2.51 [V] 3. (5 points) For the circuit given in problem 3.11 of the textbook, determine the regions of operation for the two transistors. You should explain how you reach the conclusions youve made. Solution: Let M2 be the bottom transistor and M1 be the upper transistor. For M2, V gs2 = 5V, and so it must be ON (saturation or linear). Furthermore, M1 must be in saturation since V gd1 = 0 < V T . At the same time V gd2 = V gs1 > V T . Thus, we can say that M2 is in the linear region. 4. (5 points) Problem 3.8 of the textbook....
