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 figure 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 configuration. Express your result as a function of I S , β F , and β R . A B C D E F V V V V V V I I I I I I Which of these configurations 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? (

    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.
