The r-parameters for a BJT is

listed in the table  Relation of transistor symbol tor-parameter model To calculate the approximate value of r’e which is also temperature dependent and is based on an ambient temperature of 20°C The difference between β ac and β DC is illustrated below     2- The h- parameters Relationship of h- parameters and r- parameters    CE amplifiers exhibit high voltage gain and high current gain The ac equivalent is obtained by:

For the circuit show below, select a minimum value for the emitter

bypass capacitor, C2, if the amplifier must operate over a frequency range

from 200 Hz to 10 kHz. Calculate the base-to-collector voltage gain of the amplifier both without and with an emitter bypass capacitor if there is no load resistor.     The value of r’ e = 6.58 Ω, for the
