I am designing a 2N2222 transistor common emitter voltage-divider amplifier. Using 9V for the power supply and trying to make the loadline to determine Q. How do I determine the sauration point current for the load line?
try this circuit
simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab
the saturation current will be 9v/2,000 = 4.5ma
If BETA is 100, this circuit will automatically (negative DC feedback) make the collector voltage be near VDD/2, no matter what is the VDD.
