Ch.5 Summary
BJT Transistor Modeling
A model is an equivalent circuit that represents
the AC characteristics of the transistor.
A model uses circuit elements that approximate
the behavior of the transistor.
There are two models commonly used in small
signal AC analysis of a transistor:
r
e
model
Hybrid equivalent model

Ch.5 Summary
The r
e
Transistor Model
BJTs are basically current-controlled devices; therefore
the r
e
model uses a diode and a current source to
duplicate the behavior of the transistor.

One disadvantage to this model is its sensitivity to the
DC level. This model is designed for specific circuit
conditions.

transistor. These parameters can be found on a transistors
specification sheet:

The Hybrid t Model
The hybrid pi model is most useful for analysis
of high-frequency transistor applications.
At lower frequencies the hybrid pi model closely
approximate the r
e
parameters, and can be
replaced by them.

The output of one amplifier is the input to the next
amplifier
The overall voltage gain is determined by the product of
gains of the individual stages
The DC bias circuits are isolated from each other by the
coupling capacitors
The DC calculations are independent of the cascading

Cascode Connection
This example is a CECB
combination. This arrangement
provides high input impedance
but a low voltage gain.

The low voltage gain of the
input stage reduces the Miller
input capacitance, making this
combination suitable for high-
frequency applications.

Feedback Pair
This is a two-transistor circuit that operates like a Darlington
pair, but it is not a Darlington pair.
It has similar characteristics:
High current gain
Voltage gain near unity
Low output impedance
High input impedance
The difference is that a Darlington uses a pair of like
transistors, whereas the feedback-pair configuration uses
complementary transistors.
