1 , , 10 kΩ b) Find the small-signal parameters of the BJT transistor ( gm , r0 , rπ ). [3pts]
Since they’re biased identically in each circuit (once again, using the approximation that
1) the BJTs will have identical small-signal parameters. ,

i) g m, BJT / g m, MOS
ii) r0, BJT / r0,MOS
iii) rπ , BJT / r0, BJT

, (ii) 1 ,
, (iii) 0.26 , d) Derive the expressions of the output resistances for both cascade amplifiers shown above.
You can drop small terms that are less than 10% of the dominant terms. Using the ratios
you obtained in c), determine which cascode amplifier (Cascode-A or Cascode-B) has
higher output resistance. [6pts]
