Name: Solutions ECE 124A–Fall 2008 Perm No. ______________________ 2/9 1. (20 pts) (suggested time: 20 minutes) In this problem, assume |VTP| = 0.5V, VTN = 0.4V. Also, VDD = 2.5V. a) In the circuit shown above, identify which of the NMOS transistor M1’s terminals (gate, source, drain) correspond to Vin, Vout, and Vdd (3pts) Solution: b) What is the voltage at the output Vout when Vin = 0V? What about when Vin = Vdd ? (2pts) Solution: c) Exchange both the NMOS transistors for PMOS transistors, and repeat part b) (2pts) Solution: d) What is the maximum number of NMOS passgates can you can cascade (in the manner shown in the figure below into an ideal, symmetrical inverter (Vswitch = 1.25V) before Vout is no longer a ‘0’ ? (4pts)

Name: Solutions ECE 124A–Fall 2008 Perm No. ______________________ 3/9 Solution: e) For the circuit shown in the figure below, what is the value of Vout for Vin = Vdd? For Vin = 0V? (4pts) Solution: f) In the figure below, V1 changes slowly from -1V to 0V, what is the value of Vout at V1=-1V and V1= 0V? (5pts) V1 0V -1V Î Vout=?
