Unformatted text preview: of Iowa. Fall 2011. Problem 11 For the following circuit, determine and . Assume the diodes’ internal resistance is negligible, and that for Si is 0.7 V and for Ge it is 0.3 V. (6 points) Solution Given the polarity of the battery and diodes, assume that both diodes are forward biased. Replace the diodes with piecewise linear models as shown below. This is now a linear circuit that one can solve using nodal analysis, KCL, KVL, superposition, Thevenin, or Norton equivalent circuits, etc. A KCL equation for the Si diode node is Solving yields . The sign of the current is consistent with the assumption that the Si diode is forward biased. By inspection 14 55:041 Electronic Circuits. The University of Iowa. Fall 2011. Problem 12 For the following circuit, determine . Assume for Si is 0.7 V and for Ge is 0.3 V, and the diodes’ internal resistance is negligible. (4 points) Solution Given the battery and diodes’ polarities, assume the diodes are forward-biased. Replace the diodes with their piecewise linear models as shown. Then ( ( Alternatively, note that the 4.75 mA flows through the output resistor, so This voltage is consistent with the assumption that the diodes are forward biased. 15 55:041 Electronic Circuits.
