Q 1 V c1 Q 2 V E2 V c2 If we cascade two or more similar stages, the DC voltage would soon approach V CC . Hence, no room for ac signal swing at outputs of last stage. Hence, by alternating we go up, down, up etc., and stay near V CC /2. 6 ©UW EE TC Chen Microelectronic Circuit Design Jaeger/Blalock DIRECT-COUPLED AMPLIFIER / EXAMPLE , , 2 2,3, 2,3 2,3 3 150 0.7 , 80 F BE ON AF VV Q V       Analyze the given multi-stage amplifier 1 12 23 24 10 , 1 , 620 , 1.6 , 1.4 , 4.7 , 3.3 , 250 , 22 , I G D SE CE L R k R M R R k R k R k R k R C C F R I R S1 Q 3 v o v i R G R C2 R E2 R E3 R L R D1 V CC =7.5V Q 2 C 4 C 2 M 1 -V EE= -7.5V 2 1 1 10 / 2.0 0.02 n TN K mA V M V V V   7 ©UW EE TC Chen
