Homework Help: Current in a non-inverting amp.

  1. May 14, 2008 #1
    Hey guys, was just considering what happens when you apply a high current to the base in a non-inverting amplifier. Looking at a transfer characteristic, it would result in the signal being 'cut off' as it would be greater than the Vcc. My question is this, what happens to the collector current at this stage. Is it at a maximum or minimum. I believe it would be minimum which would result in a minimal voltage drop across Rc. This would leave a large Vout which would be 'clipped'. Am i right in this assumption, remembering that it is non-inverting?
