Question 1 (9 pts) The following circuit makes use of a transconductance (voltage-to-current) amplifier to create a current in R L. The amplifier has an input resistance of 1MO and an output resistance of 100O. There are M diodes (n=2) in parallel with the load R L . You may use the constant voltage drop model for these diodes. v s V BIAS =1V R S =100k D 1 D 2 D M G MS R L =50ohms i L a) [2 pts] Find a condition on the short-circuit transconductance G MS so that all the diodes can conduct. For the remaining parts of this question, let G MS = 50mA/V b) [2 pts] Determine the current in each diode as a function of M. c) [2 pts] Draw the small-signal model for this circuit, assuming all diodes are conducting. d) [3 pts] Assume there is a small input voltage ripple v s = |v s |sin( ω t) as shown. What magnitude of v
