From Wideband Amplifier Design

It is useful to have two-port models available for the simplified transistor models introduced in Chapter 2. The model shown in Figure B-1 does not include any reference to C jc or R bb, but these items are easily added later, and there are times you would want to do an analysis without them. C jc is included in the equation for f t (and therefore T t) so the frequency response for the model has not been compromised. I have included R eb because it is an important factor, and it is not always easily added. From this model, we want to derive the two-port h-parameter and the two-port s-parameter model. We will begin with the h-parameter model.

Figure B-1: A simplified model of the type we used extensively throughout the book.

In this model, C ? = T tg m and . Combining these two equations, we get . We will use these relationships in the following analysis.


The h-parameter two-port model is defined as


Multiplying this gives



To solve these, we use the following


By inspection, we see immediately that for the circuit of Figure B-1, h 12 and h 22 are both zero. Using Mathematica to solve node and loop equations derived from Figure B-1, we find that


Given the definition for h 11, we see immediately that

Color Meters and Appearance Instruments
Color meters and appearance instruments are used to measure the properties of paints and coatings including color, gloss, haze and transparency.
Cyclone Separators
Cyclone separators and centrifugal separators utilize centrifugal, gravitational, and inertial forces to remove fine particles suspended in air or gas.
Thermocouple Wire
Thermocouple wire is used to make or extend thermocouples. The wire connects thermocouples from the sensing point to the point of cold junction compensation (CJC).
Power Operational Amplifiers
Power operational amplifiers (POA) are used to increase the power of low-level signals in applications that drive low impedances or reactive loads. They dissipate excess energy as heat, deliver extensive current, and can sustain relatively high supply voltages.
Thermocouple Elements
Thermocouple elements are temperature sensors that are useful over a wide range of temperatures.  Thermocouples are formed by two dissimilar metals.
