Differential Half-Circuit Analysis Ø This equivalence applies only for differential input signals. Ø Either of the two common-emitter amplifiers can be used to find the differential gain, differential input resistance, frequency response, and so on Ø Half circuit is biased at I/2. Ø The voltage gain(with the output taken differentially) is equal to the voltage of half circuit.

    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.
