QUESTION: 1

Assertion (A): Current mirrors are widely used in analog integrated circuits for DC biasing.

Reason (R): Current mirrors provide highly stable DC bias points without the need of a lot of biasing resistors.

Solution:

QUESTION: 2

Consider the following statements:

1. Self-blas is superior to the fixed bias from the consideration of stability of operating point in the CE amplifier.

2. Bias stabilization is used to prevent thermal runaway.

3. Improper biasing of a transistor results in the distortion of the output signal.

4. A transistor is said to be in quiescent stage when no signal is applied to the input.

Q. Which of the statements given above are correct?

Solution:

QUESTION: 3

For the circuit shown below, what is the value of R_{C} needed if V_{C} = 2 V ?

Solution:

Using KVL, we have:

-5 + R_{C} (I_{B} + I_{C}) + R_{B}I_{B} + 0.7 = 0

Since, V_{CE }= V_{C }= 2 V, therefore transistor is in active mode.

∴ I_{C} = βI_{B}

So,

or,

Now,.

or,(Using equation (i))

or, R_{C} = 2.3 kΩ

QUESTION: 4

Assuming the current source to be ideal, all transistors to be identical, and I_{C} = βI_{B} the stability factor for the current mirror circuit shown below would be

Solution:

Applying KCL at the collector of Q_{3 }gives,

or,

Also,

Hence,

Therefore,

or,

QUESTION: 5

A reverse biased diode placed in parallel with the base-emitter junction makes the circuit insensitive to variations in______with changes in temperature.

Solution:

The circuit for the “diode compensation for I"_{CO} is shown below.

Here, if the diode and the transistor are of the same type and material, the reverse saturation current I_{0} of the diode will increase with temperature at the same rate as the transistor current I_{CO}.

Here,

Since the diode is reverse biased by V_{BE} = 0.2 V (for Ge device), the current through D is I_{0} and I_{B} = I - I_{0}.

Now,

Thus, if β ≫ 1 and if I_{0} of D and I_{CO }of transistor track each other over the desired temperature range, then I_{C} remains essentially constant so that the circuit becomes insensitive toe variations in I_{CO} with changes in temperature.

QUESTION: 6

The static (DC) and dynamic (AC) load lines in a transistor amplifier are different when

Solution:

QUESTION: 7

Thermal runaway is not possible in FET because as the temperature of FET increases,

Solution:

QUESTION: 8

The two transistors in figure are identical. If β = 25, the current I_{C2} is

Solution:

Both transistor are in the forward active region.

Here, I_{C1} + I_{B1} + I_{B2} = 25 μA

Since the transistors are identical and have the same V_{BE}, therefore

∴

or,

QUESTION: 9

The input resistance of a common emitter stage can be increased by

1. unbypassing emitter resistance

2. bootstrapping

3. biasing it at low quiescent current

4. using compounded BJTs

Q. The correct sequence in descending order of the effectiveness of these methods is

Solution:

QUESTION: 10

For the transistor amplifier shown in figure below, V_{CC} = 12 V, R_{1}, = 8 kΩ, R_{2} = 4 kΩ, R_{C} = 1 kΩ, R_{E} = 1 kΩ.

Assuming V_{BE }= 0.7 V, the operating point Q be given as

Solution:

The voltage across

Therefore,

Now,

∴

∴

= 12 - 3.3 x 10^{-3} x 2 x 10^{3}

= 5.4 volt

∴ Q = (5.4 V, 3.3 mA)

QUESTION: 11

In a self bias circuit using BJT, if the stability factor is represented as then the rate of change of I_{C} w.r.t. β, keeping I_{CO }and V_{BE} constant will be given by (I_{C}= collector current of the transistor)

Solution:

Stability factor S is given by

Now,

QUESTION: 12

The forward current gain (α) of a bipolar transistor can be increased by

1. reducing the recombination lifetime in the emitter

2. increasing the emitter doping density.

3. increasing the base doping density.

4. reducing the base width.

Select the correct code from the given options,

Solution:

• When emitter is heavily doped, more majority carriers will reach into base due to which l_{C} will increase and hence α increases.

• Due to early effect, base width is reduced as a result of which I_{C} is slightly increased. Hence, α of the transistor is increased.

Hence, 2 and 4 are correct.

QUESTION: 13

What is the value of thermal resistance for the 2N338 transistor for which the manufacturer specifies P_{C,max} = 125 mW at 25°C free-air temperature and maximum junction temperature of 150°C?

Solution:

Given,

P_{C,max} = 125 mW

We know that,

QUESTION: 14

The stability factor (S_{1}) for the circuit shown below is given by

Solution:

Applying KVL, we get:

Putting value of l_{B} from equation (ii) into (i), we get:

QUESTION: 15

For the cascade amplifier shown below, the quiescent current through transistors is 1.mA and the collector voltage V_{C2} = 6 V and V_{C1} = 3 V. Assuming V_{BE} = 0.7 V and very high Value of β, the values of R_{1} and R_{2} will be respectively

Solution:

Since β is very large, we can neglect the base current of the transistors.

Now,

Hence, current through 18 kΩ resistor
