Feb 22, 2008 BE 12: Homework # 5, Spring 2008 Due: Mar 03, 2008 1. For the Common—Base ampliﬁer shown in Figure—1: (a) Draw the small—signal model of the ampliﬁer. Assume the coupling capacitors(CCl, 002)
are shorts for the frequency of interest. Also neglect the output impedance (r0) of
the transistor. (b) From the small-signal model derive AU,AUO,AZ-,Zm, Zout and Power Gain (G) in
terms of the circuit parameters. (c) For RL = 10169, RC = 10199, VCC = 10V and Rs = 1009, to what value must
the bias current Idc be set in order that the input impedance Zm matches R3 (i.e.
Zm = 1009)? What is the resulting voltage gain from the source to the load ?

two—port equivalent circuit as shown in Figure—4. Based on measurement values extracted
experimentally, you can derive the the two-port model of the ampliﬁer. The experimental
setup is: 0 You are driving the ampliﬁer with lKHZ source with amplitude of 100mV (ie.
vs = 100mV - sin(wt)). o In series with the source is a 1009 resistance (ie. Rs = 1009). This source is AC
coupled which is assumed to be a short for this particular frequency. . o The load resistance is 12/69 (ie. RL = 2169). Following are measurement values for the given experimental setup: 0 The peak voltage measured at the input is 50mV (ie. Um = BOmV). o The peak voltage measured at the output, without the load, is 500mV (ie. vout
