c ° Copyright 2010. W. Marshall Leach, Jr., Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Common-Collector Ampli fi er Basic Circuit Fig. 1 shows the circuit diagram of a single stage common-collector ampli fi er. The object is to solve for the small-signal voltage gain, input resistance, and output resistance. Figure 1: Common-collector ampli fi er. DC Solution (a) Replace the capacitors with open circuits. Look out of the 3 BJT terminals and make Thévenin equivalent circuits as shown in Fig. 2. V BB = V + R 2 + V R 1 R 1 + R 2 R BB = R 1 k R 2 V EE = V R EE = R E V CC = V + R CC = R C (b) Make an “educated guess” for V BE . Write the loop equation between the V BB and the V EE nodes. V BB V EE = I B R BB + V BE + I E R EE = I C β R BB + V BE + I C α R EE (c) Solve the loop equation for the currents. I C = αI E = βI B = V BB V EE V BE R BB + R EE (d) Verify that V CB > 0 for the active mode.

    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.
