UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA College of EngineeringDepartment of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences EE 105 Prof. Pister Spring 2011 Homework Assignment #4 Due in the 105 box on the 2ndfloor of Cory, 5pm Friday 2/11/2010 Problem 1:On a single graph on a piece of graph paper, draw a linear voltage axis from 0 to 2V, and a linear time axis from 0 to 3ns and plot the time response of the following circuits: a) a 1mA step function current source feeding a 1pF capacitor. b) a 1kresistor hooked to a 1V step function supply on one side, and a 1pF capacitor on the other. c) a 1uH inductor (I'm not so good at drawing inductors) from a 1V step function supply feeding a 1pF capacitor. Problem 2: Consider an NPN transistor with IS=10fA and a of 100. a) If the device is biased in the forward active region at room temperature, ignore the Early effect and calculate the base-emitter voltage required to get a collector current of 1uA. Don’t use a calculator! What is the base current that corresponds to this bias point?
