1. Voltage Divider Bias Design Template in Excel Applicable Circuit
This Voltage Divider Bias Design Template in Excel will work only on below circuit. This circuit is a Voltage Divider Bias. VCC and VBB are both referenced to the circuit ground. In case VBB is tied to VCC, then the value of VBB is same to VCC.
2. Requirements to Use this Voltage Divider Bias Design Template in Excel
The user must have computer with Microsoft excel application in order to use this Voltage Divider Bias Design Template in Excel.
VCC and VBB are both referenced to the circuit ground. In case VBB is tied to VCC, then the value of VBB is same to VCC.
3. How the Template Works?
The template is designed in excel. Excel is a very common office tool. So, everybody has access on it in their laptops or PC. It is designed based on the above circuit.
The user just needs to input all the parameters. Change values until the desired parameters are attained.
All the fields in green are inputs. The user must enter value on it.
The fields in yellow are calculation results. These should not be altered.
The template computes the circuit currents; base (Ib), collector (Ic) and emitter (Ie). The unit is express in both Amperes (A) and in microampere (uA) or milliampere (mA).
Power Dissipation Calculation
The design template will do power dissipation computations for all the parts on the circuit. The units are in watts (W) and milliwatts (mW).
Power Stress Calculation
The template is also able to compute the power stress of the components in the circuit. However, the power rating of each component must be provided on the corresponding field. For power stress, just set a limit of 50% to ensure high reliability.
Transistor Operation State
The excel design template is also able to determine if the transistor operates in Linear or Saturation mode. Linear mode is what is desired for amplifier application. On the other hand, saturation is what is needed for a switch operation.
4. Design Template Integrity
The template is double checked via Mathcad derivations and template. They have the same result. Furthermore, there is an LTspice simulation that shows the same results.
If you want to check your calculations, then this is perfect for you. If you have no time to do all the analysis, simply use this template and you can have instant design. All you need to do is to play on it.
