UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY College of Engineering Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Homework #4 Solutions Due Tuesday, September 25, 2007 EE 105 Fall 2007 Prof. Liu Problem 1. PNP BJT Biasing a) I will use R C to refer to the 500 Ω resistor at the collector of the BJT. V EB = 2 . 5 1 . 7 = 0 . 8 V I C = I S parenleftBig e V EB /V T 1 parenrightBig = 1 . 15 mA V X = I C R C = 500 I C = 577 mV b) I C = I S parenleftBig e V EB /V T 1 parenrightBig parenleftbigg 1 + V EC V A parenrightbigg V EC = V CC V X = V CC I C R C I C = I S parenleftBig e V EB /V T 1 parenrightBig bracketleftbigg 1 + 1 V A ( V CC I C R C ) bracketrightbigg I C = 1 . 49 mA V X = 745 mV Problem 2. Input Resistance These can be solved by inspection if you recall that looking into the base, you see r π +(1+ β ) R E (if R E is a resistor present in the emitter) and looking into the emitter, you see 1 /g m . If you don’t recall these resistances, you can derive them from the small signal model. a) R in = R 1 + ( R 2 bardbl r π ) b) R in = 1 g m bardbl R 1 c) R in = r π 1 + (1 + β 1 ) r π 2 Problem 3. Output Resistance The resistance looking into the collector of Q 2 is 1 g m 2 bardbl r π 2 bardbl r o 2 1 g m 2 . Thus, we can think of this just as a Q 1 with an emitter resistance of 1

### 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.
