Objective
The purpose of experiment #7 is to learn how to design a common emitter amplifier
circuit by selecting the right resistors values and supply voltage.
List of Instruments
2) 4 Resistors: 1.66M , 5M , 4.7k , and 2k .
3) Alligator Clips
4) Jumper wires
5) Power supply
6) 2N2222
7) 10 F
8) Oscilloscope

Figure 1 Common Emitter Amplifier
Using these design considerations, select values and V
CC
so that the amplifier meets the
following specifications:
1. The circuit must provide an output voltage swing V
o
of 10 volts peak to peak with no
distortion of the V
o
waveshape. Distortion is defined as limiting of V
o
due to the amplifier
operating the transistor near cutoff or saturation regions.

2. It must provide this distortion-free amplification over the temperature range from 25C to
100C, and for any value beta from beta
min
to beta
max
for the 2N2222.

3. It must provide a gain, V
o
/V
i
, of at least 2.

What peak-to-peak value of V
i
is needed to provide 10 volts p-p output?
V
ip-p
= 3.8 volts
Set-up
1. Set up the circuit of Figure 1 using your 2N2222 with your values of resistors and V
CC
.

2. Set the input voltage, V
i
, to the peak to peak value necessary to yield 10 V
p-p
at V
o
.
3) Connect the oscilloscope to view V
o
and V
i
simultaneously. If you do not observe an
undistorted V
o
, it will be necessary to tweak the values of resistance in order to yield a
distortionless output.

In order to maximize our output results we set the output and get distortion to give a
better idea the area where our max input should be.
4) Record V
BE
, I
C
, V
CE
, gain, and the waveshapes of V
o
and V
i
on the same time axis.
Label the V
o
and V
i
waveshapes with their maxima and minima values. Place your
results in Table 1.

?

2. What change in I

3. Calculate the theoretical quiescent collector power dissipation of your transistor with beta =

4. How would the voltage gain of your amplifier be affected by reducing the 10 microfarad
capacitor? Explain.
