Learning Outcomes
Single and matched pair BJT and CMOS circuits including common emitter and common base discrete BJT amplifiers with and without series emitter feedback, by passed or unbypassed. A two, n-p-n BJT cascode amplifier. A two, n-p-n BJT transistor differential amplifier with passive collector loads and tail resistor. The above differential amplifier with a 2 or 3 transistor current mirror setting the tail current. The above differential amplifier with a 2 or 3 pnp BJT current mirror active collector load. MOS transistor model, linear and saturation regions, dc equations, MOS capacitances. CMOS current mirrors, simple and cascode inverters, source follower and differential amplifier circuits. Small signal equivalent circuits and analysis of gain and bandwidth of simple amplifiers. Use of LTSPICE for circuit simulation.
