Fall 2005 6.012 Microelectronic Devices and Circuits Prof. J. A. del Alamo Homework #9 - November 18, 2005 Due: November 30, 2005 at recitation 2 PM latest) (late homework will not be accepted) Please write your recitation session time on your problem set solution. 1. [30 points] The ±gure below shows six possible ways of connecting an npn bipolar transistor that may yield a diode-like behavior. Using the ideal Non-Linear Hybrid- π Model , calculate the I-V characteristics of the two-terminal device in each con±guration. Express your result as a function of I S , β F , and β R . ABC D E F V V V V V V I I I I I I Which of these con±gurations exhibit diode-like I-V characteristics? 2. [20 points] Problem P8.10 of Howe & Sodini. Don’t do (e). Do instead: e) Calculate the maximum amplitude of a sinusoidal signal signal applied to the input so that the output waveform does not clip. What makes the output waveform clip if this maximum signal is exceeded? (
