Question #1 (10 points) a)[2 pts] A voltage amplifier with an input resistance of 7.2kΩis connected to a voltage source whose resistance is 5kΩ. 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 1kΩresistance is connected at the load. Find the values of Avo, ROUTfor this amplifier. -------------------------------------------------------------- A transresistanceamplifier “AMP1” has RIN= 500Ω, ROUT= 750Ω, and RVO= 50 V/A. A voltageamplifier “AMP2” has Rin= 7.2kΩ, Avo= -10V/V and ROUT= 500Ω. They are connected as shown in the figure below. Assume the constant voltage drop modelfor all diodes and RS= 5kΩand RL= 1kΩ.

For parts c), d) and e), assume Vout= 0 and VX= 0 when IS= 0. c)[3 pts] Draw the current-to-voltage transfer characteristic (voutvs. is) of this circuit, making sure to show the limits of the linear region. (Hint: it will help to first sketch vxvs. isand compute vout/vx) d)[1 pt] Based on your transfer characteristic, what input current results in the maximum symmetric voltage swing at Vout?
