Consider the design of the circuit to set a certain Q-point: V ce 10V 6V 200 20mA c R  BJT current gain: 100 +10 V Design goal: 20mA out c V I Now find the base resistance R b that will give this current (KVL): V ce 10 I c 6 20mA 40mA 200 A c b I I  To get a 4V drop across the collector resistor @ 20mA requires a resistor value I b 10mA 30mA I b 400 μ A 300 μ A 200 μ A 100 μ A 0 μ A 50mA R b +10 V 0.7 V V b 0.7V 0 bb b VI R  b b b V R I +6 V 47 k 200 100 If we use the same supply voltage for V b (+10V) then 10 0.7 47k 200 A b R 
