Example text

A 2N5551 VAS transistor biased at 10 mA and having no emitter degeneration will have an output resistance on the order of 14 kΩ at a collector-emitter voltage of 35 V. This would correspond to a signal output voltage of 0 V in an arrangement with ± 35 V power supplies. The same transistor with 10:1 emitter degeneration will have an output resistance of about 135 kΩ. At a collector-emitter voltage of only 5 V (corresponding to a -30-V output swing) that transistor will have a reduced output resistance of 105 kΩ.

Power amplifier design is introduced by describing a very basic design. That design is analyzed and then followed through many stages of improvements. The explanation 3 4 Audio Power Amplifier Basics of the reasons for and results of the improvements illustrates how to think about amplifier design and understand many of the trade-offs. Actual simulated distortion results are presented at each stage of the evolution of the design. Once you are made comfortable with amplifier design and analysis, Part 2 delivers the meat of high-performance design and a much deeper understanding of performance-limiting factors and sources of distortion.

Current Gain If a small current is sourced into the base of an NPN transistor, a much larger current flows in the collector. The ratio of these two currents is the current gain, commonly called beta (β) or hfe. Similarly, if one sinks a small current from the base of a PNP transistor, a much larger current flows in its collector. The current gain for a typical small-signal transistor often lies between 50 and 200. For an output transistor, β typically lies between 20 and 100. Beta can vary quite a bit from transistor to transistor and is also a mild function of the transistor current and collector voltage.
