**npn Transistor: How it Works (common emitter)**

Left pn junction is forward biased – open. Right pn junction is reverse biased – closed. If those would be regular diodes – no current would exist btw emitter and collector. But the width of the base is very narrow, two back-to-back pn junctions are tightly coupled. Electrons injected from emitter into base region rush through it and are removed by collector, creating collector current IC. Some of the electrons will travel to the base, creating base current IB . Base current is usually quite smaller: where b is the common-emitter current gain usually is in the range 50 to 200. Thus transistor works as a current amplifier: Look for relationship btw iB and iC. Simulation: Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

**npn Transistor: How it Works (common base)**

Left pn junction is forward biased – open. Right pn junction is reverse biased – closed.

**Simplified Saturation Region Model**

In saturation region, both junctions are forward-biased, and the transistor operates with a relatively large current and a small voltage between collector and emitter. This is vCESAT - the saturation voltage for the npn BJT. No simplified expressions exist for terminal currents other than iC + iB = iE. They are determined by external circuit elements. Simplified Model Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

53
Nonideal BJT Behavior Junction Breakdown Voltages. If reverse voltage across either of the two pn junctions in the transistor is too large, the corresponding diode will break down. Minority Carrier Transport effects in the Base Region. Base transit time (associated with storing minority-carrier charge Q required to establish career gradient in base region) places upper limit on useful operating frequency of transistor. Diffusion Capacitance: for vBE and hence iC to change, charge stored in base region must also change. b-Cutoff Frequency, Transconductance and Transit Time - forward-biased diffusion and reverse-biased pn junction capacitances of BJT cause current gain to be frequency-dependent. Early Effect and Early Voltage - in a practical BJT, output characteristics have a positive slope in forward-active region; collector current is not independent of vCE. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

54
Biasing for BJT Digital logic circuits and linear amplifiers use very different operating points of transistors. This circuit can be either a logic inverter or a linear amplifier depending on a choice of Q-point Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

55
Biasing for BJT Goal of biasing is to establish known Q-point which in turn establishes initial operating region of the transistor. For a BJT, the Q-point is represented by (IC, VCE) for an npn transistor or (IC, VEC) for a pnp transistor. In general, during circuit analysis, we use simplified mathematical relationships derived for a specified operation region, and the Early voltage is assumed to be infinite. Two practical biasing circuits used for a BJT are: Four-Resistor Bias network Two-Resistor Bias network The constant VBE is not practical because of very steep iv curve and strong dependence on temperature. Much better circuits are those of 4-resistor and 2-resistor biasing. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

Then IC , IE , are set by VEQ , VBE , RE Also, VEQ is designed to be large enough that small variations in the assumed value of VBE won’t affect IE. This implies that IB << IR2, so that IR1 = IR2. So base current doesn’t disturb voltage divider action. This implies that IB << IE, so that Q-point is independent of base current. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

65
**Four-Resistor Bias Network for BJT: Design Objectives**

From the good engineering approximation for the 4 resistor biasing: From the input loop: The value of REQ is usually designed small, to neglect the voltage drop in it. Then IC , IE , are set by VEQ , VBE , RE Also, VEQ is designed to be large enough that small variations in the assumed value of VBE won’t affect IE. This implies that IB << IR2, so that IR1 = IR2. So base current doesn’t disturb voltage divider action. This implies that IB << IE, so that Q-point is independent of base current. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

**Tolerances - Worst-Case Analysis: Example (1)**

Typically, tolerance of discrete transistors is 10%. 5%, 1%. In IC – 30%. Power supply – (5-10)%. Current gain even more. Thus: the problem of tolerance analysis. Problem: Find worst-case values of IC and VCE. Given data: bFO = 75 with 50% tolerance, VA = 50 V, 5 % tolerance on VCC , 10% tolerance for each resistor. Analysis: To max IC , VEQ should be maximized, RE should be minimized and opposite for minimizing IC. Extremes of RE are: 14.4 kW and kW. To maximize VEQ, VCC and R1 should be maximized, R2 should be minimized and opposite for minimizing VEQ. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

70
**Tolerances - Worst-Case Analysis: Example (2)**

Extremes of VEQ are: 4.78 V and 3.31 V. Using these values, extremes for IC are: 283 mA and 148 mA. To maximize VCE , IC and RC should be minimized, and opposite for minimizing VEQ. Extremes of VCE are: 7.06 V and V The min is actually a saturated region, hence calculated values for VCE and IC actually not correct. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

71
**Tolerances - Monte Carlo Analysis**

In real circuits, it is unlikely that various components will reach their extremes at the same time, instead they will have some statistical distribution. Hence worst-case analysis over-estimates extremes of circuit behavior. In Monte Carlo analysis, values of each circuit parameter are randomly selected from possible distributions of parameters and used to analyze the circuit. Random parameter sets are generated, and the statistical behavior of circuit is built up from the analysis of many test cases. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

72
**Tolerances - Monte Carlo Analysis: Example**

Full results of Monte Carlo analysis of 500 cases of the 4-resistor bias circuit yields mean values of 207 mA and 4.06 V for IC and VCE respectively which are close to values originally estimated from nominal circuit elements. Standard deviations are 19.6 mA and 0.64 V respectively. The worst-case calculations lie well beyond the extremes of the distributions Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

73
BJT SPICE Model Besides capacitances associated with the physical structure, additional components are: diode current iS and substrate capacitance CJS related to the large area pn junction that isolates the collector from the substrate and one transistor from the next. RB is resistance between external base contact and intrinsic base region. Collector current must pass through RC on its way to active region of collector-base junction. RE models any extrinsic emitter resistance in device. Chap NJIT ECE271 Dr. Serhiy Levkov

74
