4.2 Output Voltages

The following figure shows output voltage as a function of input voltage, V A. In the figure, the bottom curve (along the Vout = 0 axis) is for V B = 5, the next curve is for V B = 2.5 Volts and the top curve is for V B = 0 Volts. Explain these curves in terms of what you know about FETs.

VB = 5 V: Output Always Low

VB = 0 V: Output changes with VA.

Similar to VB = 0 V but M4 is only partially on.

4.3 Current

Draw a plot of the current, iD as a function of V A for V B = 5 Volts. You don’t need to provide a correct current axis, because I have not given you
