Unformatted text preview: find an adaptor with output less than 3 V. He then decides to put his knowledge of electronics into action and constructs the circuit shown in Fig. 4, where three identical diodes in forward bias produce a total voltage of V out = 3V D 2.1V and R sustains the remaining 900mV. Neglect the current drawn by the cellphone for the sake of simplicity. (a) Determine the diode saturation current, I s , so that V out =2.1V. Assume n=1. (b) Use the iterative-analysis procedure to compute V out if the adaptor voltage, V ad , changes to 3.2V. (c) Repeat (b) with the aid of a small-signal analysis. R = 150 Ω +-Cellphone Adaptor I D V ad = 3V I cell 0 +-V out Fig. 4 Due date: September 23, 2008 at noon. Late submission will not be accepted....
