BJT: Dynamic Behavior (15 points) The common emitter output characteristic of a pnp BJT at room temperature is shown below. The simplified Hybrid-Pi equivalent circuit is to be used in modeling the low- frequency ac response of the transistor. Suppose I B = 5 μA and V EC = 10 V at the dc operating point. Determine the values of g m and r π to be employed in the Hybrid-Pi model. Solution: From inspection of the I C vs. V EC plot, one concludes I C 1.1 mA at the dc operating point. Using the simplified equivalent circuit model, assuming T = 300 K, we find: g m = qI C kT = 4.2510 ! 2 S r " = kT qI B = 5180 #

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
