----------------------------

Design a single or multistage MOSFET based amplifier:

Voltage gain of at least 200. Normal or inverted output acceptable.

Small signal input resistance greater than 1 megaohm

Small signal output resistance less than 200 ohms

Allow output signal of 8 volts peak-to-peak into a load resistor of 1000 ohms

Use no more than 5 active (transistor) devices

Use standard 5% valued resistors of no more than 100K in value

Given transistor parameters:

threshold voltage = 2 V; device transconductance, K = 1 mA per volt

squared; channel modulation parameter (lambda) = 0.02 per volt.

------------------------------

I tried to first figure out how to get the output resistance, and I think it has something to do with the resistors parallel to the transistor. I know what a standard amplifier with one or two capacitors, 3 or so resistors, and one transistor looks like, but I don't know how to manipulate it to fit these specifications.

I'm really sorry for not giving more of my attempts to solve this, but I'm just so stuck. If anyone can give me any clue on how to begin, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
