Bypass capacitors are used to bypass (shunt) unwanted signals to the ground. A common use is in power supplies where a bypass capacitor is connected in parallel with the main filter capacitor to shunt noise and other high frequency interference to ground which the main capacitor may not be able to do.
The amplifier gain characteristics will change due too the bypass of AC signal to ground by the capacitor
If you remove the supply bypass capacitor, chances are the amplifier just won't work. If you remove the emitter bypass capacitor of the amplifier, DC gain remains unaffected while AC gain increases within the passband. Note though, that the passband is affected by removing/adding the emitter bypass capacitor. Hope this helps :)
a bypass capacitor is capacitor whose one end is grounded it is used to short the resistor if it is parallel to the capacitor used for dc analysis
Without a bypass capacitor it is just equal to Rc
The emitter bypass capacitor, in a typical common emitter configuration, increases gain as a function of frequency, making a high pass filter. Removing the capacitor will remove the gain component due to frequency, and the amplifier will degrade to its DC characteristics.
The addition of a bypass capacitor in parallel with the source resistor raises the gain of an amplifier but makes it less predictable.
The emitter bypass capacitor in a common emitter amplifier will have less resistance as the frequency increases. Since gain in this configuration is collector resistance divided by emitter resistance (within limits of hFe), the gain will thus increase for higher frequencies, making this into a high pass filter.
Emitter bypass capacitor is a capacitor which provide low impedance to AC and high impedance to DC . AC is shunt then only DC appears on RC and volage gain increses.

You would use a supply bypass capacitor in a common collector amplifier... It's necessary, to give the positive supply rail a direct AC connection to ground. Without it, I don't think the amplifier would work properly. However, if you're using a power supply and not a battery, then chances are that it HAS a big capacitor inside it, eliminating the need for any external capacitor.
A: The emitter decoupling capacitor sole function is to increase gain at hi frequency
It routes the AC signal to ground, maintaining a constant DC at the emitter, thereby increasing amplifier gain and stability.
Applied input signal at the base of the amplifier appears across the emitter resistor (RE) due to inter electrode capacitance so it should be bypassed the emitter resistor (RE) through the bypass capacitor (CB). unbypassed signal will be amplified (common emitter amplifier) and reverse back from the emitter to the collector through the base, amplified signal from the emitter to the collector (common emitter amplifier) is 1800 out of phase to the amplified signal from the base to the collector (common base amplifier), so reduced the gain.
Gain in a CE configuration of a BJT is collector resistance divided by emitter resistance, subject to the limit of hFe. The emitter bypass capacitor will have lower impedance at high frequency, so the gain will be higher at higher frequency, making this a high-pass amplifier.
A capacitor is typically placed across a resistor for the purpose of shunting either the AC component of a current (as in a transistor amplifier) or transient AC 'spikes', and is referred to as a "bypass capacitor".
Loading of Rc coupled amplifier occurs, if you doesnt use coupling capacitors...... If avoiding input coupling capacitor the amplifier will load the function generator.. For more details go to http://mycircuits9.blogspot.com
At loer frquency, the bypass capacitor ce is not short, the emitter is not at ac ground xc in parrllel with re.
hi guys,use of capacitor in car stereo amplifier is really helpful..specially when using an amplifier(s) to drive speakers.the purpose of capacitor is to maintain current level for amplifier(s) so it can perform better and give optimum performance to the speakers. Power capacitor uses the current from main battery and stores it in itself. and whenever car is turned off, amplifier uses the stored power from capacitor.. hopefully this answer will be helpful.
The emitter bypass capacitor creates an alternate path for AC only with much less resistance while still leaving Resistor RE present in the circuit to preserve the division of DC voltage. With less resistance acting on the AC signal it performs at a much higher level.
A: A TRANSISTOR gain is determined by current flow on the collector by adding a resistor to the emitter this current flow is reduced by adding or bypassing this resistor with a capacitor the net effect is that this emitter resistor will be reduced in value as frequency increases therefore change gain as a function of frequency input
we can use the Out Put Capacitor Ex Kvar
if we want to stop the dc voltage and pass the ac signal we must use coupling capacitor in an amplifier....
As the DC component in the signals are not required to be amplified, rather not required at times. Thus a blocking capacitor blocks this DC component from.entering the amplifier. Bypass capacitors are used at the emitter end so that the AC signal reaching the emitter end does not alter the biasing required to maintain the Q-point. All the above happens using the basic characteristic of a capacitor, that it blocks DC and passes AC.
If a bypass capacitor is used the voltage drop across emitter resistance is reduced which in turn increases the gain.....
The quantity of specific information included in the question is exceeded only bythe quantity of vital, relevant information that's never mentioned.Are you talking vacuum-tube or transistor amplifier ? What's the configuration of theamplifier, i.e., which terminal of the active device is 'common' to input and output ?And where is the bypass capacitor in the circuit ?I'll take a wild stab and assume that you have a common-emitter amplifier, with thecapacitor bypassing the bias resistor in the emitter branch. If that's the case, thenthe resistor is supposed to be there only to set the DC Q-point, but every effect itcould have on small-signal performance would be an effect that you don't want ...it would increase the output impedance, and any impedance common to input andoutput always reduces the gain.So one of the effects of the bypass capacitor is to reduce the output impedanceof the stage.(If Dingobot comes along now and flags this for gibberish, that'll be my first cluethat after all these years, I don't actually remember this stuff too well.)
