This set of Analog Circuits Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Low Frequency Response and Miller Effect Capacitance”.

1. In Miller’s theorem, what is the constant K?

a) Total voltage gain

b) Internal voltage gain

c) Internal current gain

d) Internal power gain

View Answer

Explanation: The constant K=V

_{2}/V

_{1}, which is the internal voltage gain of the network.

Thus resistance R

_{M}=R/1-K

R

_{N}=R/1-K

^{-1}.

2. When applying miller’s theorem to resistors, resistance R1 is for node 1 and R2 for node 2. If R1>R2, then for same circuit, then for capacitance for which the theorem is applied, which will be larger, C1 or C2?

a) C1

b) C2

c) Both are equal

d) Insufficient data

View Answer

Explanation: Given R1>R2

R/1-K > R/1-K

^{-1}, and so 1-K

^{-1}>1-K

Thus K

^{2}>1, K>1, K<-1 (correct)

Thus, C1=C(1-K) and C2=C(1-K

^{-1})

Hence C1>C2

3. Find net voltage gain, given h_{fe} = 50 and h_{ie} = 1kΩ.

a) 27.68

b) -22

c) 30.55

d) -27.68

View Answer

Explanation: Apply millers theorem to resistance between input and output.

At input, R

_{M}=100k/1-K = R

_{I}

Output, R

_{N}=100k/1-K

^{-1}≈ 100k

Internal voltage gain , K = -h

_{fe}R

_{L}’/h

_{ie}

K = – 50xR

_{c}||100k/1k = – 50x4x100/104= – 192

R

_{I}= 100k/1+192 = 0.51kΩ

R

_{I}’ = R

_{I}||h

_{ie}= 0.51k||1k = 0.51×1/1.51 = 0.337kΩ

Net voltage gain = K.R

_{I}’/R

_{S}+R

_{I}’ = – 192 x 0.337/2k + 0.337k = -27.68.

4. Given that capacitance w.r.t the input node is 2pF and output node is 4pF, find capacitance between input and output node.

a) 0.67 pF

b) 1.34pF

c) 0.44pF

d) 2.2pF

View Answer

Explanation: C1=C(1-K), C2=C(1-K

^{-1})

C1=2pF

C2=4pF

C1/C2=1/2=1-K/1-K-1

K = -2

C1 = C(1+2) = 3C

C = C1/3 = 2/3pF = 0.67 pF.

5. Consider an RC coupled amplifier at low frequency. Internal voltage gain is -120. Find the voltage gain magnitude, when given that collector resistance = 1kΩ, load = 9kΩ, collector capacitance is 0. is 0.1μF, and input frequency is 20Hz.

a) 120

b) 12

c) 15

d) -12

View Answer

Explanation: A

_{V}= -120

f

_{L}= 1/2πC

_{C}(R

_{C}+R

_{L}) = 1/2π*0.001 = 1000/2π = 159.15Hz

A

_{V}’ = \(\frac{|AV|}{\sqrt{1}} + (\frac{f_L}{f})^2\)

A

_{V}’ = 120/8.02 ≈ 15.

6. Find the 3-dB frequency given that the gain of RC coupled amplifier is 150, the low frequency voltage gain is 100 and the input frequency is 50Hz.

a) 50.8 Hz

b) 55.9 Hz

c) 60Hz

d) 100Hz

View Answer

Explanation: A

_{VM}= 150

A

_{VL}= 100

f = 50Hz

100 = \(\frac{150}{\sqrt{1}}+(\frac{f_L}{50})^2\)

1+f

^{2}/2500 =1.5

^{2}

f

^{2}= 2500*1.25 = 3125

f = 55.90 Hz.

7. Given collector resistance = 2kΩ, load resistance = 5kΩ, collector capacitance = 1μF, emitter capacitance = 20μF, collector current = 2mA, source resistance = 2kΩ. If the effect of blocking capacitor is ignored, find the applicable cut-off frequency.

a) 22.73 Hz

b) 612 Hz

c) 673Hz

d) 317 Hz

View Answer

Explanation: R

_{C}= 2kΩ, R

_{L}= 5kΩ, C

_{C}= 1μF, C

_{B}= 10μF, C

_{E}= 20μF, R

_{S}= 2 kΩ

h

_{ie}= 1kΩ, I

_{C}= 2mA

f

_{L1}= 1/2πC

_{C}(R

_{C}+R

_{L}) = 22.73 Hz

f

_{L2}= g

_{m}/2πC

_{E}= I

_{C}/2πC

_{E}V

_{T}= 612 Hz

Since f

_{L2}> 4f

_{L1}, hence f

_{L2}is the correct answer.

8. Consider the circuit shown.

h_{fe} = 50, h_{ie} = 1000Ω. Find magnitude of voltage gain at input frequency 10Hz.

a) 100

b) 133

c) 166

d) 220

View Answer

Explanation: Net load = 10k||10k = 5kΩ = R

_{L}’

A

_{VM}= -h

_{fe}R

_{L}’/h

_{ie}= -50×5/1 = -250

f

_{L}= 1/2πC

_{C}(R

_{C}+R

_{L}) = 15.9 Hz

A

_{VL}= \(\frac{AVM}{\sqrt{1}} + (\frac{fL}{f})^2\) = 133.

9. What is the phase shift in RC coupled CE amplifier at lower 3dB frequency?

a) 180°

b) 225°

c) 270°

d) 100°

View Answer

Explanation: Total phase shift = 180°+ tan

^{-1}(f

_{L}/f)

At 3dB frequency f

_{L}/f = 1

Total phase shift = 180° + 45° = 225°.

10. Consider that the phase shift of an RC coupled CE amplifier is 260°. Find the low frequency gain when the voltage gain of the transistor is -150.

a) 100

b) 26

c) 40

d) 55

View Answer

Explanation: 180° + tan

^{-1}(f

_{L}/f) = 260°

f

_{L}/f = tan(80) = 5.67

A = \(\frac{150}{\sqrt{1}}\) + 5.672 = 26.05.
