Bipolar Differential Amplifiers: Qualitative Analysis Different modes of operation of the BJT differential pair: (a) The differential pair with a common-mode input signal v CM . (b) The differential pair with a “large” differential input signal. (c) The differential pair with a large differential input signal of polarity opposite to that in (b). (d) The differential pair with a small differential input signal v i . Note that we have assumed the bias current source I to be ideal (i.e., it has an infinite output resistance) and thus I remains constant with the change in v CM . Common Mode Differential Mode

Bipolar Differential Amplifiers: Linearization For Your Information The transfer characteristics of the BJT differential pair (a) can be linearized (b) (i.e., the linear range of operation can be extended) by including resistances in the emitters. What is the role of the degeneration resistance (R e )?
