What is the effect of cascading the amplifier stages?
Due to cascading voltage gain
Voltage gain of 1st satge

So it increases.
While upper cutoff frequency
While lower cutoff frequency
Increases compare to single state
As decreases and increases.
Generally, the gain of a transistor amplifier falls at high frequencies due to the
The gain of a transistor falls at high frequencies due to the various parasitic capacitances of the devices.
For the MOSFET shown in the figure, the threshold voltage and The value of (in mA) is ___________.
The trans conductance gm of the transistor shown in figure is 10 mS. The value of the input resistance RIN seen by source is -
But overall input resistance seen from source is
RIN = 10 || 10|| 5
RIN = 2.5 kΩ.
In the circuit shown in figure (a), if the input is given as in figure (b). then the output will be (Assume that the time constant is very large)
The analysis will begin with the period t1-t2 of the input signal since the diode is in its short circuit state.
The output is across R, but it is also across 5 V battery so V0 = 5V
Applying KVL around the input loop
-20-5 + Vc = 0
Vc= 25 V
the capacitor will therefore charge up to 25 V from t2 to t3 the circuit will appear as shown below by applying KVL in the outside loop,
V0 = 35 V
∴ The output waveform will be as
The input resistance of the circuit in figure is
Here Ix =
But Vy =
Vy = 11 Vx
Ix = (Vx - Vy) / (1M Ω)
= (Vx - 11 Vx) / (106 Ω)
= -10 Vx/ 106
Therefore Vx / Ix = 106/ (-10) = -100 K Ω

For the given network, determine the output waveform. The circuit components are given below:
The output voltage is across the series combination of 5 V supply, and the diode.
In the positive region of the input signal, the diode is an open circuit. The voltage drop across the resistor is zero. Hence, There is a change in state at Hence, the output is fixed at 5 V until , and above that the output waveform is same as the input waveform.
In the negative region of the input signal, the diode is on. When the diode is short-circuited, the output voltage is directly across the 5 V supply, and hence, the output is fixed at 5 V.
Hence, the output waveform is obtained as:
In the voltage doubler circuit shown in the figure, the switch ‘S’ is closed at t = 0. Assuming diodes D1 and D2 to be ideal, load resistance to be infinite and initial capacitor voltages to be zero, the steady state voltage across capacitors C1 and C2 will be
Since RLOAD is infinite, we can replace with open circuit
C1 will be charged in first +Ve half cycle
VC1 = +5v
C2 will be charged in first –Ve half cycle
VC2 = -10v

In the second case, the gain decreased due to emitter resistance RE. as gain decreases , to maintain gain bandwidth product constant, bandwidth increases.
The transistor in the given circuit should always be in the active region.Take VcE(sat)=0.2V, VEE= 0.7 V The maximum value of Rc in Ω which can be used is __________.
Given: VCE(sat) = 0.2
VBE = 0.7
β = 100
Writing KVL around the input loop
5 - IBRS - 0.7 = 0
Writing KVL around the output loop
5 - ICRC - VCE = 0
VCE = 5 - (0.215)RC
For active region VCE > VCE(sat)
or, VCE > 0.2 V
So, 5 - 0.215RC > 0.2
0.215RC < 5 - 0.2
Hence RC(min) = 4.8 / (0.215) = 22.32 Ω
In the circuit shown , function of diode D1 is
If D1 would have not been there then for V1<0, D2 ON and op-amp would have been in open loop mode.
In general Op-amp has high open loop gain which may cause the saturation.
By adding D1 saturation is avoided.

When the controlling voltage of an n-channel JFET is kept at 0 V, and a voltage greater than the pinch-off voltage is applied between the drain and the source terminal, the JFET:
The transfer characteristics for an n-channel JFET when the controlling voltage, VGS = 0V is shown below.
It can be seen from the characteristics that when the voltage between the drain and source (VDS) becomes greater than the pinch-off voltage (VP), the drain current remains essentially the same, as the region between the two depletion regions will increase in length. The drain current ID is fixed at the value ID = IDSS, where IDSS is the maximum drain current.
Hence, the JFET acts as a current source as shown below, for VGS = 0V, VDS>Vp
