Chapter 7

Advanced Amplifier Topics and Design Examples


Various and sundry issues related to advanced amplifier design techniques are discussed.


Cascaded gain stages; open-circuit time constants; common-emitter amplifier; emitter degeneration; emitter follower terminal impedance; capacitively-loaded emitter follower; parasitic oscillation; lab experiment; bootstrapping; shunt peaked amplifier; base spreading resistance; common-base amplifier; current switching; parasitic inductance; pole splitting; cascode

“With the advent of television and radar during the Second World War, the behavior of wideband amplifiers in the time domain has become very important. In today's digital world this is even more the case. It is a paradox that ...
