1. Figure 1 shows a transconductance amplifier whose output is fed back to its input.
Find the input resistance Rm of the resulting one-port network. (Hint: Apply a test
voltage vx between the two input terminals, and find the current ix drawn from the
source. Then, Rin = vx/ix.).

2. Figure 2 shows a signal sourcetsconnected ts to the input of an amplifier. Here Rs is the
source resistance, and Rt and Cfori are theforinput resistance and input capacitance,
respectively, of the amplifier. Derive
anloexpression for Vi(s)/Vs(s), and show that it is
of the low-pass STC type. Find the 3-dB frequency for the case Rs = 20 kilo ohm, Rj =

Using the Bode plots for low-pass and high-pass STC networks, sketch a Bode plot
for |Av|. Give approximate values for the gain magnitude at f = 10 Hz, 102 Hz, 103
Hz, 104 Hz, 105Hz, 106 Hz, and 107 Hz. Find the bandwidth of the amplifier (defined
as the frequency range over which the gain remains within 3 dB of the maximum

6. Figure 4 shows two transconductance amplifiers connected in a special

configuration. Find v0 in terms of v1 and v2. Let gm = 100 mA/V and R = 5 kilo ohm. If
vx = v2 = 1 V, find the value of v0. Also, find va for the case v1 = 1.01 V and v2 = 0.99 V.
(Note: This circuit is called a differential amplifier. A particular type of differential
amplifier known as an operational amplifier will be studied later on).
