Design of a Monolithic Bipolar Junction Transistor Amplifier in the Common Emitter with Cascaded Common Collector Configuration
Abstract This thesis presents the design, analysis, fabrication and testi ng of an in te grated common-emitter with cascaded common-collector amplifier circuit. This circuit is a well-known configuration usually st udied in an introductory course to electronics. The fabrication process is centered about the design and fabrication of the bipolar junction transistors used in the two-stage amplifier. The resistors, capacitors, and interconnections are integrated into the design and fabrication of the BJT. In order to accomplish the integration of the components into a twostage amplifier circuit, the design and generation of photolithographic masks is performed. Also, a fabrication schedule is constructed, tested, andexecuted to produce the amplifier as an integrated circuit. The mask design, mask generation, and fabrication of the circuit are accomplished using the facilities of the University of Central Florida. Although the present day technology in industry far exceeds that which is used for this project, the design, development, and execution of this project enables the resources of a research environment to be exploited and in the end making a contribution to the univers ity and its present and future students. Results of the design and fabrication are presented.
