8 Large-Signal dc Analysis Procedure: (1) select the operation mode of the BJT(2) use selected model for the device to solve the circuitand determine IC, IB, VBE, and VCE(3) check to see if the solution satisfies the constrains forthe region, if so the analysis is done(4) if not, assume operation in a different region andrepeat until a valid solution is foundThis procedure is very important in the analysis and designof the bias circuit for BJT amplifier.The objective of the bias circuit is to place the operating point inthe active region.Bias point – it is important to select IC, IB, VBE, and VCEindependent of the b and operation temperature.Example 13.4, 13.5, 13.6
