    For my electronics class we were assigned a design problem given the following specifications. We had to design a amplifier that at 1kHz would have VCC of 15v, a Zi of 47k min and Zo of 4.7k max. It also needed a overall no load gain of over 1000 and the output voltage needs a capacity of at least 5v p-p. This is my design so far using Beta as 300 and Ro as 4.5k.


    My questions are will it work and also what improvements can I make to help build a better circuit. This is my first design problem so any response is helpful! I attached my circuit. I will add capacitors on both 12.8K resistors but i'm not sure what value capacitors to use for them/rest of circuit.

    Hi,

    Real quick reply...

    You have a 1Hz input there? Or is it supposed to be 1kHz?

    The input capacitor may be too small for 1Hz. Did you check the approximate 3db cutoff point of the input section using that capacitor value?

    It supposed to be 1kHz I'm sorry. I don't know how to check db cutoff or really how to choose what capacitor value to use to be quite honest.

    Have you check the gain of your amp ? Because now the gain will be "very low".
    Is this has to be a two stage amp? Or you could use more stages ??

    I can use as many stages as i want but i calculated the gain to be very high using equations i used in class, however that is with ought using the capacitors and AC values since we never learned that...

    Can you show us this equations?

    These are my calculations.

    Aha, so you already include the capacitor in your calculation. Good for you.
    As for the cap size
    Ce ≈ 1/(2* pi *F* re) ≈ 0.16/(F*re)

    your input signal and power source do nothing, you need to complete circuit.

    There going to be connected to ground but I'm not sure what to make my ac voltage.
