D *7.57 Design an amplifier using the configuration of Fig. 7.31(a). The power supplies available are ±5 V. The input signal source has a resistance of 100 Ω, and the amplifier input resistance must match this value. (Note that The amplifier is to have the greatest possible voltage gain and the largest possible output signal but retain small-signal linear operation by keeping the signal component across the base–emitter junction to no more than 5 mV. Find appropriate values for RE and RC. What is the value of voltage gain realized from signal source to output?
