EE114 Lecture 8 R. Dutton, B. Murmann 3 Issue We could now in principle use this expression to plot the frequency response of the circuit and compute the 3-dB bandwidth The result would match the Spice simulation result exactly There are two issues with going in this direction for hand analysis The procedure is quite tedious… Imagine how complex the equations would get for a multi- transistor circuit The derived expression is useless for reasoning about the circuit from an intuitive design perspective By looking at this equation we cannot easily tell what exactly limits the bandwidth, or how we can improve it R. Dutton, B. Murmann 4 Simulation Result from Last Lecture Want to have a method that let’s us estimate the dominant pole quickly using intuitive methods Without running into high entropy expressions that tell us things we are not interested in… Non-dominant, high-frequency poles and zeros may or may not be important If they are, it may be OK to do a little more work (see material on feedback circuits, later in this course) 10 6 10

### What students are saying

• 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.
