Improved analytic method to calculate emitter follower delay including emitter resistance

Abstract

As bipolar transistor size decreases, emitter resistance becomes increasingly important in estimating transient delay. We use a quasi-linear large-signal bipolar junction transistor model and linear trial functions in coupled node equations to calculate delay of emitter followers including the effect of emitter resistance. When compared to SPICE simulations, our method produces accurate low-to-high delays for a factor of 10 increase in emitter resistance.
