Question #1 (9 pts.): A transresistance amplifier with input resistance 100 , output resistance 150 , and open-circuit transresistance 400V/A is rectified by adding a feedback diode as shown below. A current source with a source resistance 1.2k is applied at the input. You may assume the 0.7V-drop model for the diode. For parts a), b), c) and d) there is no load attached (Vout is an open-circuit). a) [2 pts.] Redraw the circuit and replace the amplifier with its equivalent circuit. (Note: Leave the diode as it is, do not replace it with its small signal model). b) [2 pts.] Give the voltage gain Vout/Vin when the setup is in the linear region of operation (i.e. before clipping occurs at Vout). c) [2 pts.] At what value of I s does clipping occur at Vout?
