D12.1 For the emitter follower in Fig. 12.3, VCC = 15 V, VCEsat =0.2 V, VBE =0.7 V and constant, and β is very high. Find the value of R that will establish a bias current large enough to allow the largest possible output signal swing for RL =1 kΩ. Determine the resulting output signal swing and the minimum and maximum emitter currents for Q1.
0.97 kΩ; –14.8 V to +14.8 V; 0 to 29.6 mA
