EE438 - Homework #3 Work the following problems from the textbook (Razavi, 1 st Edition). Prob. 2.19 Prob. 2.22 Prob. 2.24 Prob. 2.29 In the first three problems, use enough iterations to obtain 3 place accuracy. Note : As we discussed in class, the terminal characteristics of a diode can be presented in exponential form or in logarithmic form; i.e., I D = I S exp (V D /V T ) or V D = V T ln (I D /I S ) In diode ckt problems, the equations are nonlinear, and sometimes, as in Probs.

Unformatted text preview: 2.19, 2.22, and 2.24 above, iterative methods are useful. From our discussion in class, we found that when using iterative solutions we must be careful to choose the proper diode representation: If V Thev < V T {1 + ln [V T /(RI S )]} use exponential form to obtain convergence, If V Thev > V T {1 + ln [V T /(RI S )]} use logarithmic form to obtain convergence....
