THEORY: To use a transistor in any application, it is necessary to provide external DC voltages to operate it in the active region. This process is known as Biasing. The biasing circuit should be designed to fix the operating point at the center of the active region. The circuit design should provide a degree of temperature stability. In this fixed bias amplifier a high resistance RB is connected between the base and positive end of supply. The value of RB can be directly found by applying KVL to the input and output loop. For this reason, this method is called fixed bias method. This fixed biasing circuit is very simple and biasing conditions can easily be set and also the calculations are very simple. But it provides very poor stabilization. PROCEDURE: 1. Connect the circuit as per the circuit diagram. 2. Set the input and apply the input signal from the FG and observe the output. 3. Vary the input frequency from 10Hz to 1MHz and the output amplitude is noted. 4. Calculate the gain and draw the frequency response curve. 5. Note the gain bandwidth product.

RESULT: Thus the fixed bias amplifier was designed and the gain bandwidth product was determined from the frequency response curve. Gain = Bandwidth= Gain Bandwidth product =

THEORY: A CE amplifier is a circuit it can be used to increase the magnitude of the input voltage at the output by means of energy drawn from an external source. The CE amplifier construct with voltage divider biasing circuit. Biasing circuit sets the proper operating point for the CE amplifier. The input coupling capacitor couples the input signal to the base of the transistor. It blocks any dc component present in the signal and passes only ac signal. Because of this, biasing conditions are maintained constant. The output coupling capacitor couples the output of the amplifier to the load. It blocks dc and passes only ac part of the amplified signal. An emitter bypass capacitor is connected in parallel with the emitter resistance, to provide a low reactance path to the amplified ac signal. The input signal is applied to the base of the transistor through the coupling capacitor .During the positive half cycle of the input signal, the transistor is forward biased, and hence the collector current increases and collector voltage goes in negative direction. During the negative half cycle, transistor becomes reverse biased; it reduces the collector current and increases the collector voltage. Therefore, we can say that there is an 180o phase shift between input and output voltages for a CE amplifier. A CE amplifier with unbypassed resistance RE (with feedback) gives higher bandwidth than the CE amplifier without feedback.

TABULATION(Without feedback): Vin = Output voltage ( Frequency (HZ) Volt)

Gain=Vo/Vin

Frequency Response of CE amplifier: The voltage gain of an amplifier varies with signal frequency. It is because reactance of the capacitors in the circuit changes with signal frequency and hence affects the output voltage. The curve between voltage gain and signal frequency of an amplifier is known as frequency response. CE amplifier gives a wideband frequency response without peak at any frequency and hence used to cover a complete AF amplifier bands (20 HZ -20 KHZ). Bandwidth: The range of frequency over which the gain is equal to or greater than 70.7% of the maximum gain is known as bandwidth. So, for any frequency lying between FL and FH, the gain is equal to or greater than 70.7% of the maximum gain. PROCEDURE: 1. Connect the circuit as per the circuit diagram. 2. Set the input and apply the input signal from the FG and observe the output. 3. Vary the input frequency from 10Hz to 1MHz and the output amplitude is noted. 4. Removing the bypass capacitor, the process is repeated for CE amplifier with feedback. 5. Calculate the gain and draw the frequency response curve. 6. Note the gain bandwidth product.

RESULT: Thus the CE amplifier with voltage divider biasing circuit with and without feedback was designed and Bandwidth was determined from the frequency response curve. With feedback Without feedback Gain = Gain = Bandwidth= Bandwidth= Gain Bandwidth product = Gain Bandwidth product =

THEORY: In common collector amplifier, input is given to the base terminal and output is taken from emitter, collector terminal is common to both the input and output. During the positive half cycle of the input, the transistor is forward biased and hence the emitter current (o/p current) increases (1+) times the base current. [IE=IB (1+)] .Hence the output voltage VE is also increases. VE=VB-VBE From this equation we understand that increase in VB , increases the output voltage as VBE constant. Thus the output of a common collector amplifier is as its input voltage. The voltage gain of CC amplifier is unity, thus it is used as a buffer amplifier and also it is used for impedance matching. PROCEDURE: 1. Connect the circuit as per the circuit diagram. 2. Set the input and apply the input signal from the FG and observe the output. 3. Vary the input frequency from 10Hz to 1MHz and the output amplitude is noted. 4. Calculate the gain and draw the frequency response curve. 5. Note the gain bandwidth product.

RESULT: Thus the CC amplifier with voltage divider biasing circuit was constructed and the frequency response curve was plotted. Gain = Bandwidth= Gain Bandwidth product =

THEORY: It is similar to Common emitter amplifier. Here Rg is used to bias the FET .The Capacitors C1and C2 are used to couple the ac input voltage source and the output voltage respectively, these are known as coupling capacitors. The Capacitor Cs keeps the source of the FET effectively at a.c ground and is known as by-pass capacitors. The operation of the circuit may be understood from the assumption that when a small ac signal is applied to the gate, it produces variations in the drain current. As the gate to source voltage increases, the drain current also increases .As a result of this the voltage across the resistor (RD) also increases. This causes the drain voltage to decreases.

It means that the positive half cycle of the input voltages produces the negative half cycle of the output voltages. In other words, the output voltages are 180 degree out of phase with the input voltage. This phenomenon of phase inversion is similar to common emitter amplifier. PROCEDURE: 1.

THEORY: Transistor power amplifiers handle large signals. If the current flows at all times during the full cycle of the signal, the power amplifier is known as class A amplifier. Obviously, for this to happen the power amplifier must be biased in such a way that no part of the signal is cut off. The efficiency of class A amplifier is only 50%.

THEORY: In a complementary symmetry class B amplifier, a pnp-npn transistor pair is used. When common emitter configuration is used in push pull amplifier, it becomes difficult to match the output impedance for maximum power transfer without an output transformer. Hence a matched pair of complementary transistors is used in common collector configuration in this arrangement. The common collector configuration has the lowest output impedance and hence impedance matching is possible.

THEORY: A Half wave rectifier is a device which converts ac voltage to pulsating dc voltage using one PN junction diode. The ac voltage (230 V, 50 HZ) is connected to the primary of the transformer. The transformer steps down the ac voltage. Thus, with suitable turns ratio we get desired ac secondary voltage. The rectifier circuit converts this ac voltage in to a pulsating dc voltage. Half wave rectifier conducts during positive half cycle and gives output in the form of positive sinusoidal pulses. Hence the output is called pulsating dc. A pulsating dc voltage containing large varying component called ripple in it. The capacitor filter is used after rectifier circuit, which reduces the ripple content in the pulsating dc. Thus filter converts pulsating dc in to pure dc. Ripple Factor: The output of the rectifier is of pulsating dc type. The amount of ac content in the output can be mathematically expressed by a factor called ripple factor.

THEORY: Darlington connection is used to achieve larger input impedances. This circuit consists of two cascaded emitter followers. The main feature of this connection is that the composite transistor acts a single unit with a current gain that is the product of the current gains of the individual transistors. The voltage gain of Darlington circuit is close to unity, but its deviation from unity is slightly greater than that of the emitter follower. The first draw back of the Darlington transistor pair is that the quiescent current of the first stage is much smaller than that of the second. The second draw back is that the leakage current of the first transistor is amplified buy the second, and hence the overall leakage current may be high. For these two reasons, a Darlington connection of three or more transistor is usually impractical. PROCEDURE: 1. Connect the circuit as per the circuit diagram. 2. Set Vi= 1V, using the signal generator. 3. Keeping the input voltage constant, vary the frequency from 0Hz to 1Mhzin regular steps of 10 and note down corresponding output voltage. 4.
