Question #1 (10 points) a) [2 pts] A voltage amplifier with an input resistance of 7.2k is connected to a voltage source whose resistance is 5k . Through measurements, it has been determined that this amplifier has a gain of 20.4 V/V when open-circuited at the output and 10.2 V/V when a 1k resistance is connected at the load. Find the values of A vo , R OUT for this amplifier. -------------------------------------------------------------- A transresistance amplifier “AMP1” has R IN = 500 , R OUT = 750 , and R VO = 50 V/A. A voltage amplifier “AMP2” has R in = 7.2k , A vo = -10V/V and R OUT = 500 . They are connected as shown in the figure below. Assume the constant voltage drop model for all diodes and R S = 5k and R L = 1k . I in V out +5V -3V V X Voltage Amp (AMP2) Transresistance Amp (AMP1) R S R L I S b) [2 pts] Redraw the circuit, replacing the amplifiers with their equivalent circuits. (Leave the diodes and sources as they are). For parts c), d) and e), assume V out = 0 and V X = 0 when I S = 0. c) [3 pts] Draw the current-to-voltage transfer characteristic (v out vs. i s ) of this circuit, making sure to show the limits of the linear region. (Hint: it will help to first sketch v x vs. i s and compute v out /v x ) d) [1 pt] Based on your transfer characteristic, what input current results in the maximum symmetric voltage swing at V out ?
