Solution In this circuit, operates as a common-base device (why?) but with a resistance in series with its base [Fig. 5.101(b)]. To obtain , we recognize that resembles an emitter follower, e.g., the topology in Fig. 5.91(a), concluding that can be viewed as the output resistance of such a stage, as given by Eq. (5.329): (5.353)

    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.
