2/5/2010 EE 310 Electronic Circuit Design I Spring 2010 Assignment 4 Due: Friday, February 12, in class Basic Applications Constant-current Biasing MOSFET Small-signal Model and AC Analysis MOSFET circuit applications include operation as a switch and as an amplifier. When used as a switch, the device is generally biased in either cutoff or nonsaturation, where its drain-source terminal pair resembles an open or closed switch, respectively. For analog circuit operation, we bias the MOSFET in saturation where it is to behave as a small-signal amplifier. It is important for the MOSFET to have a stable bias current so that there is minimal variation in device parameters and operation region. We conclude our study of Chapter 3 by considering the MOSFET designed as a stabilized current source for biasing. In Chapter 4 we study the MOSFET linear amplifier. We begin by developing small-signal models for the device. Since we are ignoring device capacitance effects, the gate terminal is considered to be an open circuit, which greatly simplifies the small-signal model and the circuit analysis.

    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.
