### Lecture 8

Transistor Bias

Section 5.1-5.2

K-30/AK-710 FM Wireless Microphone

Oscillator

Amplifier

Audio

Amplifier

Simple Biasing

Assumed VBE and β → IB→IC →VC

IB is sensitive to VBE.

IC is very sensitive to β.

Iteration Solution

(Kick off iteration with VBE=0.7)

IC=βIB

Example 1

Assumed:

RB=1 Mohms

RC=2 Kohm

IS=6.734e-15

Beta=155

IB=11.3 uA

IC=1.76 mA

Beta=155

β Variation

Variation of gm implies that the gain of the amplifier

will vary significantly as a function of beta.

Back of the Envelope Calcuation

Assume the base current is negligible,

i.e. negligible compared to the current

in R1.

IC does not depend on Beta!

Negligible Base Current

VBE=R3/(R1+R3)VCC

VBE=5.75/(5.75+17)2.5V=0.631 V

I(R1)/IB=110uA/2.10=52.38

Sensitivity to Component Variation

1% error in R2 leads to 14 % error in IC.

5% error in R2 leads to 85 % in IC.

Biasing with Emitter Degeneration

If R2↑→VP↑→IE↑→VRE↑→small ∆VBE

→Small ∆IC

An error in VX due to inaccuracies in R1, R2 and VCC is absorbed by RE, leading to a smaller change in VBE.

Design Rules

VRE should be > 100 mV.

IB=12.4 uA

IC=1.91 mA

Beta=154

Sensitivity to Component Variation

1% error in R2 leads to 1.05 % error in IC.

5% error in R2 leads to 5.7 % error in IC.

Iterative Method

Initial assumption: VBE=0.7 V
