CH 40 BASIC BJT AMPLIFIERS In the last chapter we described the operation of the bipolar junction transistor and analyzed and designed the dc response of circuits containing these devices In this chapter we emphasize the use of the bipolar transistor in linear ampli er applications Linear ampli ers imply that we are dealing with analog signals A linear ampli er then means that the output signal is equal to the input signal multiplied by a constant where the magnitude of the constant of proportionality is in general greater than unity A linear ampli er is capable of producing signal power gain that is the power in the output signal is greater than the power in the input signal We will investigate the source of this quotextraquot power We examine the properties of three basic singlestage or singletransistor ampli er circuits These circuits are the commonemitter emitterfollower and commonbase con gurations These con gurations form the building blocks for more complex ampli ers so gaining a good understanding of these three ampli er circuits is an important goal of this chapter We introduce a few of the many possible multistage con gurations in which multiple ampli ers are connected in series or cascade to increase the overall smallsignal voltage gain or to provide a particular combination of voltage gain and output resistance Our discussion includes the method of analysis required for these types of circuits and a synopsis of their proper es 41 ANALOG SIGNALS AND LINEAR AMPLIFIERS In this chapter we will be considering signals analog circuits and ampli ers A signal contains some type of information For example sound waves produced by a human contain the information the person is conveying to another person Our physical senses such as hearing vision and touch are naturally analog Analog signals can represent parameters such as temperature pressure and wind velocity Here we are interested in electrical signals such as the output signal from a compact disc a signal om a microphone or a signal om a heart rate monitor The electrical signals are in the form of timevarying currents and voltages Timevarying signals from a particular source very o en need to be ampli ed before the signal is capable of being quotusefulquot For example Figure 41 shows a signal source that is the output of a compact disc system That signal consists of a small timevarying voltage and current which means the signal power is relatively small The power required to drive the speakers is larger than the output signal from the compact disc so the compact disc signal must be ampli ed before it is capable of driving the speakers in order that sound can be heard Other examples of signals that must be ampli ed before they are capable of driving loads include the output of a microphone voice signals BB 329 Introduction to Electronics 147 CD pln r Low signal pm er Block diagram at a compact disc prayer system Figure 41 e e A We WantLhe uutput ampli er The m
