One of the final project for ECE 121 is designing a Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) Amplifier with given specifications. For this design problem, we have to combined all the things were learned so far in the lab to create this amplifier. These are the requirement for the completion of the design problem.
1. Circuit schematic
2. Design equations and analysis
3. Circuit simulation to prove your design for β = 50, 100, 200
4. Experimental results
5. Comparison between PSPICE (circuit simulation) and experimental results
The lab is quite challenging because me and my partner have to review the materials from all the other previous labs. So far, we have a circuit schematic that is based on a similar schematic that Professor Haller gave us. Right now, we are working on getting the correct values for the resistor and capacitor to bias the circuit. Our first problem, we ran into was that it was in operating in saturation which is no good. By end of this week, we should have a working amplifier, hopefully.
