Then the lo op gain is computed by exciting the circuit at Z3 + VI N - Z1 gmVI N Z2 + Z1 VOU T - Figure 5.5: Feedback lo op terminated with Z1 pened lo op and computing the output across Z1 : VOU T − g m Z1 Z2 A= − O Alo = VVIU T = −lom Z2 ||NZ1 + 1 +)Z21Z1Z33 = Z1gm Z1 Z23 g ( = ZZ3 Z + Z VI + +Z2 +Z N seful insights can be gained if we assume for the moment that Z1 and Z2 , i.e., Z1 = j X1 , Z2 = j X2 . We allow Z3 to have a non-zero (positive) g m X1 X2 base-emitter voltage and collector current into quiescent and time-varying components, i.e., IC = IDC + iC (A.11) Vbe = VDC + vbe (A.12) where lower-case letters refer to the time-varying component of the quantity. Later, we will make the assumption that the transistor bias network acts to keep the DC component of the collector current at a nearly constant value. Suppose that the time-varying component of the base-emitter voltage is sinusoidal, i.e., Vbe = VDC + v1 cosω t (A.13) and let x = v1 q/kT = v1 /25mV (at room temperature). Then IC = IS exp[VDC q/kT ] exp[ x cosω t] (A.14) The term exp[ x cos ω t] is a non-sinusoidal periodic function of time and can be expanded in a Fourier series. The series is exp[ x cos ω t] = Io (x) + 2 ∞ ￿ In (x) cos(nω t) (A.15) n=1 where the coefficients In (x) are values of the modified Bessel function of the first kind. Using this relationship, the collector current waveform can be written as ￿ IC = IDCo [Io (x) + 2 In (x) cos(nω t)] (A.16) n=1 Here IDCo is the DC component of collector current when the time-varying component of the input signal is equal to zero (v1 = 0). The DC component of the collector current when the time-varying component of the input signals is not zero is given by IDC = IDCo Io (x). (A.17) This function is plotted in Figure A.4, which shows that Io (x) grows very rapidly when the base-emitter voltage swing exceeds a...
