I1 Q1
1A BJT_NPN_VIRTUAL* V1
12V

VCE = 6V
Ic = 5mA
Ib =25uA
Resistance calculated using dIc/dVce = 20kohms
Conductance = 1/resitance = 1/20000 = 0.00005 Siemens
VAF = Ic*Ro = 0.005*20000 = 100V
These results agree
Part 2

a) 6/0.002 = 3kohm
b) Ib= Ic/Bf = 2x10-5A
Rb = 21-0.6/2x10-5 = 570 kohm
c) hie = 1/(40Ib) = 1.25kohm
d) Gain = -Bf x Rc/hie = -240 Vout = 240mV
e) Bf = 200
Ic = Bf x Ib = 4x10-3A

Comment: Current required to operate has increased by a factor of 2. As the Bf value has
also doubled it seems there is a linear relationship between the two.

XMM1
Vac in = 996.251 uA (XMM1)
Vac out = -229.563 mA(XMM2)
Iac in = 767.838 nA
Iac out =76.3 uA

Av = -229 (less than calculated value!)
Ai = 100 (approximately)

To get AC output halved an RS value of 1.3k ohm was used.

As the bf value increases the operating point decreases in a logarithmic fashion.
