1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am designing a voltage divider common emitter amplifier given the following parameters Av= 40 dB +/- 1dB Zi> 1000 ohms Zout< 5000 ohms Stability factor = 5 Beta*re= 650 ohms Beta minimum = 35 Beta maximum = 300 Vcc = 20 volts Rload = 33 kilo-ohms Rsource = 470 ohms Vce= 10 volts Ve= 2 volts We can use the approximation that Ic=Ie My teacher has given us a "hint" saying to work backwards from the AC analysis. I need to solve for Re, R1, R2, Rc and the respective currents. I am lost as to where to start with this circuit. 2. Relevant equations[/b Ic=Ie Ib=Beta*Ic Vb=(Vcc(R2))/(R1+R2) Vcc-Vce-Ic(Re+Rc)=0 re=(26*10^-3)/Ic Stability Factor=Rthevenin/Re Av in db=20log(Vo/Vi) 3. The attempt at a solution I am completely lost where to start with this circuit. So I have not attempted it.
