Assuming device operates in saturation thus iD s atisfies with iD ~ vGS equation. 2. According to biasing method, write voltage loop e quation. 3. Combining above two equations and solve these equations. 4. Usually we can get two value of vGS , only the on e of two has physical meaning. MOSFET amplifier: DC analysis

    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.
