Experiment: 2 stage common emitter amplifier

I’m almost completely clueless regarding transistor circuits over and above using it as a switch. Before delving into the books and learning the theory and application of transistors, I decided to build a simple amplifier circuit, tweak it, and just test it out to see how it performs. Here follows what I ended up with.

Bus Pirate and I2C EEPROM

This is a continuation of a series of posts on simple experiments I’m performing with my new Bus Pirate v4.0. Click to see me trying out the bus pirate v4.

I’ll connect up 3 EEPROM ICs on a breadboard and interface with them through the I2C bus. The particular ICs I will use are 24LC256 EEPROM chips each with a 256Kbit or 32KByte capacity.
