# Recall the BJT Amplifier

A BJT amplifier is an electronic circuit that uses bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) to amplify a small AC signal. There are three basic configurations of BJT amplifiers: common emitter, common collector, and common base. The common emitter configuration is the most commonly used and provides the highest voltage and power gain.

In a common emitter BJT amplifier, the input signal is applied to the base of the transistor and the output is taken from the collector. The emitter is usually grounded, although it can be connected to a biasing circuit. The amplifier circuit also includes a power supply, biasing resistors, and coupling capacitors.

The operation of the common emitter BJT amplifier can be divided into two stages: the input stage and the output stage. In the input stage, the small AC input signal is coupled to the base of the transistor through a coupling capacitor. The base-emitter junction is forward-biased, allowing the input signal to control the amount of current flowing through the transistor.

In the output stage, the amplified signal is taken from the collector of the transistor and coupled to the load through another coupling capacitor. The load can be a speaker, a resistor, or any other device that requires the amplified signal. The output stage is usually biased in the active region of the transistor, which allows it to amplify both the positive and negative halves of the input signal.

The voltage gain of the BJT amplifier is determined by the ratio of the output voltage to the input voltage. The power gain is determined by the ratio of the output power to the input power. The frequency response of the amplifier depends on the values of the components used in the circuit, and it can be analyzed using the frequency response curves or Bode plots. The stability of the amplifier can also be analyzed using the stability factor and the feedback factor.

# List the Models used for the analysis of BJT Amplifier

There are several models that can be used for the analysis of BJT amplifiers, including the following:

1. Ebers-Moll model: The Ebers-Moll model is a simple model that describes the basic behavior of a BJT. It is based on the assumption that the collector current is proportional to the collector-emitter voltage. The Ebers-Moll model is useful for simple analysis and for understanding the basic operation of a BJT.

2. Hybrid-π model: The hybrid-π model is a more complex model that takes into account the effects of the base current and the base-emitter voltage on the collector current. It is based on the assumption that the collector current is proportional to the collector-emitter voltage and the base current. The hybrid-π model is useful for more accurate analysis of BJT amplifiers.

3. Small-signal model: The small-signal model is a model that describes the behavior of a BJT amplifier at small signal levels. It is based on the assumption that the collector current is proportional to the base-emitter voltage and the collector-emitter voltage. The small-signal model is useful for analyzing the small-signal characteristics of BJT amplifiers, such as gain and bandwidth.

4. Large-signal model: The large-signal model is a model that describes the behavior of a BJT amplifier at large signal levels. It takes into account the nonlinear behavior of the BJT, such as saturation and cutoff. The large-signal model is useful for analyzing the large-signal characteristics of BJT amplifiers, such as distortion and power output.

Recall the Hybrid Model of BJT

The hybrid-π model is a model that describes the behavior of a BJT (bipolar junction transistor) amplifier. It is a more complex model than the Ebers-Moll model, and it takes into account the effects of the base current and the base-emitter voltage on the collector current.

The hybrid-π model is based on the following equation:

Ic = β * Ib + Ie

where Ic is the collector current, β is the current gain of the BJT, Ib is the base current, and Ie is the emitter current.

The hybrid-π model can be used to calculate the voltage gain, current gain, and power gain of a BJT amplifier. It is useful for more accurate analysis of BJT amplifiers, and it is often used in the design of BJT amplifier circuits.

The hybrid-π model can be represented graphically by a hybrid-π equivalent circuit, which is shown in the following diagram:

Input -> BJT -> Output | Rc | Re | Rb

In the hybrid-π model, Rc is the collector resistance, Re is the emitter resistance, and Rb is the base resistance. The values of Rc, Re, and Rb can be calculated from the hybrid-π model equations or measured experimentally.

The hybrid-π model is a useful tool for analyzing the performance of BJT amplifiers and for designing BJT amplifier circuits. It is important to note that the hybrid-π model is a simplified model and does not take into account the full complexity of the BJT. It is best used for small-signal analysis, and more complex models may be needed for large-signal analysis.

# Determine the parameters of BJT Amplifier using Hybrid Model

To determine the parameters of a BJT (bipolar junction transistor) amplifier using the hybrid-π model, you will need to know the values of the collector current, base current, and emitter current. You can measure these values directly using an oscilloscope or multimeter, or you can calculate them using the hybrid-π model equations.

The hybrid-π model equations are as follows:

Ic = β * Ib + Ie

Ie = Ic – Ib

where Ic is the collector current, β is the current gain of the BJT, Ib is the base current, and Ie is the emitter current.

To calculate the voltage gain, current gain, and power gain of the BJT amplifier, you will also need to know the input and output voltages and currents. You can measure these values directly using an oscilloscope or multimeter, or you can calculate them using the following formulas:

Voltage gain (Av): Av = Vout / Vin

Current gain (Ai): Ai = Iout / Iin

Power gain (Ap): Ap = Pout / Pin

where Vin is the input voltage, Vout is the output voltage, Iin is the input current, Iout is the output current, Pin is the input power, and Pout is the output power.

Once you have calculated or measured all of the relevant parameters, you can use them to analyze the performance of the BJT amplifier and to design BJT amplifier circuits. It is important to note that the hybrid-π model is a simplified model and does not take into account the full complexity of the BJT. It is best used for small-signal analysis, and more complex models may be needed for large-signal analysis.

# Relate h-parameters for CB, CE, and CC Configurations

The h-parameters (hybrid-π parameters) of a BJT (bipolar junction transistor) are a set of parameters that describe the behavior of the BJT in different amplifier configurations. The h-parameters are often used to analyze and design BJT amplifier circuits.

The h-parameters for the common base (CB), common emitter (CE), and common collector (CC) configurations are as follows:

1. Common base (CB) configuration:

The h-parameters for the CB configuration are:

h11 = β

h12 = 1

h21 = 1/β

h22 = Rc / (Rc + Re)

where β is the current gain of the BJT, Rc is the collector resistance, and Re is the emitter resistance.

2. Common emitter (CE) configuration:

The h-parameters for the CE configuration are:

h11 = Rc / (Rc + Re)

h12 = -Rc / (Rc + Re)

h21 = β

h22 = -1/β

where β is the current gain of the BJT, Rc is the collector resistance, and Re is the emitter resistance.

3. Common collector (CC) configuration:

h11 = -1

h12 = Rc / (Rc + Re)

h21 = 1/β

h22 = -β

where β is the current gain of the BJT, Rc is the collector resistance, and Re is the emitter resistance.

The h-parameters can be used to calculate the voltage gain, current gain, and power gain of a BJT amplifier in different configurations. They are useful for analyzing the performance of BJT amplifiers and for designing BJT amplifier circuits. It is important to note that the h-parameters are based on the hybrid-π model, which is a simplified model and does not take into account the full complexity of the BJT. It is best used for small-signal analysis, and more complex models may be needed for large-signal analysis.

# Describe the RC Coupled Common-Emitter Amplifier

An RC coupled common-emitter amplifier is a type of BJT (bipolar junction transistor) amplifier that uses an RC (resistor-capacitor) network to couple the input and output signals. The RC coupled common-emitter amplifier circuit is shown in the following diagram:

In this circuit, R1 is a resistor that is connected between the input signal and the base of the BJT. C1 is a capacitor that is connected between the base and the emitter of the BJT. R2 is a resistor that is connected between the collector of the BJT and the output signal.

The RC coupled common-emitter amplifier is a voltage amplifier that has a voltage gain that is determined by the values of R1, R2, and C1. The voltage gain can be calculated using the following formula:

Av = -R2 / R1

The RC coupled common-emitter amplifier has a high input impedance and a low output impedance. It is often used to amplify weak signals, such as those from microphones or sensors.

# Recall Approximate h-parameter model of BJT Amplifier

The approximate h-parameter model of a BJT (bipolar junction transistor) amplifier is a simplified model that is used to analyze and design BJT amplifier circuits. The approximate h-parameter model is based on the hybrid-π model, but it uses simplified equations and assumptions to make the analysis and design process more tractable.

The approximate h-parameter model is based on the following assumptions:

1. The transistor is operated in the active region, where the collector current is proportional to the base current.

2. The transistor has a constant current gain (β) over a wide range of collector currents.

3. The emitter current is equal to the collector current.

4. The base-emitter voltage drop (Vbe) is constant over a wide range of collector currents.

Based on these assumptions, the approximate h-parameter model can be used to calculate the voltage gain, current gain, and power gain of a BJT amplifier using the following formulas:

Voltage gain (Av): Av = -Rc / (R1 + (β + 1) * Re)

Current gain (Ai): Ai = β * Av

Power gain (Ap): Ap = Av * Ai

where Rc is the collector resistance, R1 is the input resistor, Re is the emitter resistor, and β is the current gain of the BJT.

The approximate h-parameter model is a useful tool for quickly analyzing and designing BJT amplifier circuits, but it is not as accurate as the full hybrid-π model. It is best used for small-signal analysis, and more complex models may be needed for large-signal analysis. It is also important to note that the approximate h-parameter model is based on several assumptions that may not hold in all cases, so it may not be suitable for all applications.

# Describe the approximate h-parameter Analysis of Common-Emitter Amplifier with Bypass Capacitor

The common-emitter amplifier with a bypass capacitor is a type of BJT amplifier that uses a capacitor to bypass the emitter resistor, allowing the amplifier to provide a higher voltage gain and a wider bandwidth than the common-emitter amplifier without a bypass capacitor. The h-parameter analysis is a method used to analyze the small-signal behavior of BJT amplifiers.

To perform the h-parameter analysis of the common-emitter amplifier with a bypass capacitor, we can follow these steps:

2. Assume that the transistor is biased in the active region, which means that the base-emitter junction is forward-biased and the collector-base junction is reverse-biased.
3. Replace the transistor with its h-parameter equivalent circuit, which consists of four h-parameters: hfe (the DC current gain), hie (the input impedance), hoe (the output impedance), and hre (the reverse voltage feedback factor). The h-parameters are defined as follows:
• hfe = ΔIC / ΔIB, where ΔIC is the change in collector current and ΔIB is the change in base current.
• hie = ΔIB / ΔVB, where ΔVB is the change in base voltage.
• hoe = ΔIC / ΔVC, where ΔVC is the change in collector voltage.
• hre = ΔIB / ΔVC, where ΔVC is the change in collector voltage.
1. Draw the small-signal equivalent circuit of the amplifier, which consists of the h-parameter equivalent circuit of the transistor and the biasing network of the amplifier. The biasing network includes the voltage source Vcc, the biasing resistor R1, and the bypass capacitor C1.
2. Calculate the input resistance Rin of the amplifier by applying the voltage divider rule to the biasing network. Rin = hie + (1 + hfe) * RE, where RE is the emitter resistor.
3. Calculate the output resistance Rout of the amplifier by applying the current divider rule to the collector load resistor RC and the output impedance hoe of the transistor. Rout = RC || 1/hoe, where “||” denotes parallel resistance.
4. Calculate the voltage gain Av of the amplifier by applying the voltage divider rule to the output voltage and the input voltage. Av = – hfe * RC / Rin.
5. Calculate the lower 3 dB cutoff frequency fL and the upper 3 dB cutoff frequency fH of the amplifier by using the following formulas:
• fL = 1 / (2 * π * (Rin + hie) * C1)
• fH = 1 / (2 * π * (Rout + RC) * C2), where C2 is the input coupling capacitor.

The h-parameter analysis provides a useful way to analyze the small-signal behavior of BJT amplifiers, and it can be used to design and optimize the performance of BJT amplifiers for a wide range of applications.
