B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 3 For dc analysis with Q 1 in the active region, can often model the B-E diode as a constant voltage, V BE(on) . Then I B = V i ! V BE(on) R S V o = V CC ! I C R L = V CC ! " F I B R L = V CC ! " F R L R S V i ! V BE(on) ( ) The dependence on ! F makes this “direct voltage biasing” impractical. How to generate V i so as to control V o ? Practical approaches include using feedback, ac coupling and/or differential circuits. I B I s e qV BE kT R L R S + V BE V i V CC I C = ! F I B + V o B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 4 Small-Signal Equivalent Circuit for C-E Stage For hand analysis, typically neglect r c and r e , and neglect r b or include it with R S . Then, at low frequencies A V (0) ! v o v i ! = 0 = " g m r # R S * + r # $ % & ( ) (r o ||R L ) where R S * = R S + r b Note that for R S ! 0 and R L !" A V (0) !

B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 5 Miller Approximation Referring to the small-signal circuit for # > 0 i 2 = (v 1 ! v o )(sC μ ) where R L * ! R L || r o (neglect r c ) If i 2 << g m v 1 , then i 2 v 1 = s(1 + g m R L * )C μ = sC M C M is referred to as the “Miller Capacitance” v o = ( ! g m v 1 + i 2 )R L * C M = (1 + g m R L * )C μ = + A V )C μ where A V = v o v 1 = voltage gain from the "internal" base B. Murmann, B. Wooley EE214 Winter 2008-09 6 Miller Approximation, cont’d With the Miller approximation the equivalent circuit for the C-E stage can be reduced to: C t = C ! + + g m R L * )C μ R S * = R S + r b R L * = r o ||R L r " C t g m v 1 v i ~ + v 1 + v o R S * R L * A V (s) = v o (s) v i (s) = A V (0) 1 1 ! s p 1 " # $ % & where A V (0) = ! g m R L * r " R S * + r " # $ % & ( p 1 = !
