Question #1 (12 pts.): Two amplifiers are cascaded to provide current to drive the load as shown in Fig 1a. A 1 is a voltage amplifier and A 2 is a transconductance amplifier . Both A 1 and A 2 have Rin = Rout = R . Assume all the diodes are identical and use the constant-voltage drop model. Fig. 1a a) [3 pts.] Redraw the circuit and replace the amplifiers with their equivalent circuits. (Note: Leave the diodes as they are, do not replace them with a small signal model). b) [3 pts.] Assuming all the diodes are OFF, find an expression for the overall transconductance G m_tot = I out /v s in terms of the R s , R, R L , A v and G m . For part c), use R s = 1k , R in = R out = 10k , R L = 2k , A v = 200V/V, Gm = 500mA/V . c) [3 pts.] If the current flow through the diodes is I d = 5mA, calculate v s . d) [3 pts.] For the circuit shown in Fig 1b, find an expression for the voltage gain v out /v s .
