AMP II.2 – General Feedback Theory

Introduction Before diving practical amplifier circuits, we need to address the underlying theory behind feedback amplifiers.  This chapter will contain the essential formulas and vocabulary to be able to move on to more practical topics. A Little Bit of Control Theory If you’ve studied automation, electronics, or mechanical engineering, chances are you’ve come across control … Read more

AMP I.14 – Amplifier Characteristics

We’ve talked quite a lot about amplifiers so far.  The different amplifier configurations, how to recognize them, and what each component is used for.  By now analyzing familiar amplifier schemes shouldn’t prove too difficult.  However, we haven’t really discussed the design part.  The way I see it, a healthy education in practical electronics  should go…
