I'm trying to analyse a mirror current circuit with unequal emitter resistors, without neglecting base currents. So far, I had no luck with the math.
I found this on a website :
However, if R1 ≠ R2, then the currents through the two transistors will adjust themselves so that the emitter voltages of the two transistors are essentially equal.
It boggles my mind, since I know that Vbe varies with Ic(Ebers-Moll equation). Since Ic1 and Ic2 are different, shouldn't Vbe's be different as well? How would the transistors adjust currents.
Any help is appreciated.
