In the common emitter case under normal mode operation, when IB=0 IC = I E ICBO = 1 - OF Jason Woo 39 EE121B Spring 2010 Let ICEO ICBO /(1 - OF ) i.e., if IB = 0 I E = IC = ICEO Jason Woo 40 EE121B Spring 2010 BVCB0 BVCB0 is the (collector) breakdown voltage when the emitter is open and the base is grounded. It is therefore just the junction breakdown of the base-collector junction. That is, when M= J n (W B + X BC ) J n (W B ) Experimentally, it was found that: 1 M= 1 - (V / BV )m i.e., for the case of BVCB0 with 3 M 6 1 M (VCB ) = 1 - (VCB / BVCBO )m Jason Woo 41 EE121B Spring 2010 BVCE0 BVCE0 is the breakdown voltage of the collector when the base is open and the emitter is grounded. In this case, there are interaction between the 2 junctions and BVCE0 happens when:...

    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.
