Design of Feedback Amplifier

Let us design the amplifier for a power gain of 10 dB.

This corresponds to a voltage gain of 3.2.

10 log Pout/Pin = 10 log Vout2/vin2 = 20 log Vout/Vin = 10db.

Vout/Vin = (10) 0.5 = 3.3.

Av= Vout/Vin = RC/RE=- 3.3

Rin =Rout =50 ohm.

Rin = RF/ 1-Av = RF/1+3.3

RF = 50(4.3)= 215 ohm . You can select 210 ohm or 240 ohm as the RF.

Select gm.

Gain = gm. Ro= 3.3 = gm.50

gm = 3.3/50= 3300/50= 66 ms

RE=1/gm= 1/ 66ms = 50/3.3= 15 ohm. Preferable value is about 12 ohm or 10 ohms.

Gm=Ic/vt ,

Ic= 66.25= 1.5mA. We keep Ic about 10 mA so that we get enough gain.

RL=500 ohms, so that VCB=5V to reduce Base to Collector capacitance.

Gain x bandwidth = constant

If we reduce the bandwidth, gain can be high.

Strange Impedance Behaviors and Stability

Circuit Model for Base Impedance Effect:

ib

• The impedance seen at base of the transistor,
• Zb= 1/jwCbe + Z(b+1)
• = 1/jwCbe + Z(-jwT/w +1)
• b = ic/ib = gm vbe/ib
• = gm/sCbe =-j wT/w
• goes to 1 at w =wT
• 1 = gm/wT.Cbe, wT = gm/Cbe

Cbe

Zb

Z

If Z= R, resistor Zb sees it as a capacitor

If Z is due to inductor, it appears as a resistance.

If Z is a capacitor, it appears as –ve resistance and may cause oscillations.

Impedance Looking into the Emitter Terminal:

Ze= 1/jwCbe + Z/(b+1) where Z is the impedance in the base side

= 1/jwCbe + Z/ (-j wT/w +1)

= 1/jwCbe + jZ(w/wT)

If Z=jwL, Ze= = 1/jwCbe - (w2/wT) L

Inductance at base appears as a negative resistance at emitter.
