voltage divider bias bjt
Will voltage divider biased circuit give me the same ICq and VCEq as with Emitter biased circuit?
are ICq = Vcc/ (Rc+Re) and
VCEq= VCC ??
Thanks in advance :)[/img]

bjt voltage divider
yes... but the difference would be in the stability of ICq i.e. variation in Vceq with change in Vi

voltage divider bjt
Hi,
Vb = [ R2÷(R1+R2)] * Vcc
Ie = (Vb0.6V) ÷ Re
Ie ≈ Ic = Icq
Vceq = Vcc  Icq * (Re + Rc)
Regards,
Laktronics

bjt q point
@Laktronics
How come Vceq = Vcc  Icq * (Re + Rc) with an emitter biased circuit yet when it comes to obtaining Q point Vceq = Vcc ?
And yet with voltage divider bias is it Vceq = Vcc  Icq * (Re + Rc) ?
i'm confused :(

You and laktronics gave me different answer :)
Does this mean that if i have a voltage divider and an emmiter bias circuit with the same Vcc, R1, Rc and Re I will get the same Q point? Yet voltage divider is more stable since Icq is not too Beta dependent? I am right... Im still a bit lost at this
Thanks

qpoint bjt
if Vceq=Vcc then no current will be flowing through the transistor
emitter bias just gives a lil negative feedback to make the bias stable but voltage divider bias is more stable...

q point bjt
I see... so Vceq=VCC only when I am looking for Q point... since Ic= 0
Thanks :)

bjt voltage divider bias
dude you are confusing things.... Vceq can be equal to Vcc only when Ic=0... at Q point you calculate Vceq by using the Qpoint current Icq and hence the equation Vceq=VccIcq(Rc+Re)....

voltage divider bias
@A.Anand Srinivasan
hey i'm really really sorry for my TOO elementary questions. I only have a book and this site (not enrolled;no teachers/classmates to ask help)for my usually careless mistake related questions.
I get it now, i got the previous graph and this one mixed up....
Thanks again

In voltage divider basing, the basing resistors are replaced by thevenin equavilent circuit.
So equavilent resister Rb= R1R2/R1+R2
and equavilent voltage source VB = Vcc*R2/R1+R2
Therefore from base side you can write
VB=IbRb + Vbe+IeRe that is same as written but the values of Rb is now different and equivalent voltage VB is different is voltage divider biasing.
This is so because we require the value of stability factor S as small as possible. This we can achive by reducing Base voltage supply and hence through R1 and R2 only.
For voltage divider biasing, ICq equation is given by Vcc= IcRc + Vce + IeRe therefore
Ic= VccVceIeRe/Rc.
If you only consider Vcc/Rc+Re then it will give you saturation current and Vce= Vcc is cuttoff voltage only.
