In Electronics Lab 1, we are working on our 8 th experiment which we will be studying the characteristics of bipolar transistors. Objectives The objective in our lab was to characterize an npn bipolar transistor and to measure the dc operating point of a single-transistor amplifier. We also had to measure the ac performance of the single-transistor amplifier. Procedures We were first told to connect the circuit in Figure 1, and to use the potentiometer to vary the voltage at the input from 0 V to 10 V in 1 V increments. Then, record the voltage at point B and the voltage at point C. Next, we need to connect the circuit shown in Figure 2, this time without connecting the potentiometer to the circuit and observe. Now, connect the potentiometer and use it to apply 0 V to 1 V to point B in 0.1 V increments. Measure the voltages at point C and point E. Then, we had to disconnect the potentiometer and apply a 2 V p-p signal at 1 kHz to point B, observing

Unformatted text preview: point C and point E with the scope. We also had to apply a small signal much less than 0.1 V p-p to the input and observe the signal at point C. Finally, we needed to vary the input frequency to find a lower frequency where the gain drops to 0.71 of its high-frequency value. Analysis 1) V-in V-B V-C 0.00 10.0 1 0.46 9.90 2 0.70 7.27 3 0.70 5.30 4 0.71 3.90 5 0.71 3.18 6 0.71 2.30 7 0.71 0.98 8 0.71 0.26 9 0.71 0.20 10 0.71 0.20 2) V C E 0.0 5.51-0.72 0.1 5.44-0.66 0.2 5.36-0.59 0.3 5.29-0.51 0.4 5.18-0.44 0.5 5.08-0.38 0.6 4.97-0.27 0.7 4.90-0.19 0.8 4.75-0.09 0.9 4.72 0.10 1.0 4.58 0.25 Based on the waveforms from the Figure 2, the gain of the circuit from the input to point E was about 1.44 V. The gain of the circuit from the input to point C was about 1.60 V. After applying a small signal much less than 0.1 V p-p to the circuit, we determined that the gain from the input to point C now was around 11.0 V. Assignment Conclusion...

### 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.
