Questions & Answers
Q: How is the appropriate transistor selected for the C II amplifier design?
The selection of the transistor is based on the given voltage gain requirement, with a value greater than 120. In this case, the BC547C transistor is chosen, as it meets the specified specifications.
Q: How is the value of RC calculated?
The value of RC is calculated using the gain formula AV = RC/re, where AV is the voltage gain, RC is the resistance, and re is the small signal resistance. By substituting the given AV value, the typical values of hf e and hie, and solving the equation, the value of RC is determined.
Q: How is the Q point determined?
The Q point is determined by finding the values of VCEQ (voltage at the collectoremitter junction) and ICQ (collector current) based on the given input and output requirements. The values are calculated using equations derived from the AC equivalent circuit.
Q: How are the input resistances (R1 and R2) calculated?
The values of R1 and R2 are calculated using the voltage divider formula, considering the value of Vth (threshold voltage) and VCC (supply voltage). The equation is rearranged to solve for the ratio of R2 to the total resistance (R1+R2), which is then used to calculate the individual values of R1 and R2.
