Small signal amplifier
After the transistor has been biased with the Q-point near the middle of the load line, we can put a small ac-voltage on the base (Vin). That procedures a large ac voltage at the collector (Vout). This increase is called amplification. For two reasons we have to use capacitors. First, to couple or transmit ac signals (coupling). Second, to short ac signals to ground (bypass).
