HIGH FREQUENCY The gain falls off at high frequency end due to the internal capacitances of the transistor. Transistors exhibit charge-storage phenomena that limit the speed and frequency of their operation. Small capacitances exist between the base and collector and between the base and emitter. These effect the frequency characteristics of the circuit. C = C be ------ 2 pF ~ 50 pF C = C bc ------ 0.1 pF ~ 5 pF reverse-biased junction capacitance forward-biased junction capacitance 2

Miller’s Theorem This theorem simplifies the analysis of feedback amplifiers. The theorem states that if an impedance is connected between the input side and the output side of a voltage amplifier, this impedance can be replaced by two equivalent impedances, i.e. one connected across the input and the other connected across the output terminals. 4
