ECE3113_L23 2 Objectives • What are the advantages between active and passive bias networks? • How is RF from DC decoupled? • How do you dimension a passive bias network?

ECE3113_L23 3 Biasing networks • Biasing networks are needed to set appropriate operating conditions for active devices There are two types: • Passive biasing (or self-biasing) – resistive networks – drawback: poor temperature stability • Active biasing – additional active components (thermally coupled) – drawback: complexity, added power consumption
