6.012 - Microelectronic Devices and Circuits - Fall 2005 Lecture 19-3 1. Amplifier fundamentals Goal of amplifiers: signal amplification . +V -V v IN v OUT + + - - v IN v OUT input signal output signal R L Features of amplifier: Output signal is faithful replica of input signal but amplified in magnitude. Active device is at the heart of amplifier. Need linear transfer characteristics for distortion not to be introduced.

6.012 - Microelectronic Devices and Circuits - Fall 2005 Lecture 19-5 More realistic transfer characteristics: v IN v OUT input signal output signal Q Transfer characteristics linear over limited range of voltages: amplifier saturation . Amplifier saturation limits signal swing . Signal swing also depends on choice of bias point , Q (also called quiescent point or operating point ). Other features desired in amplifiers: Low power consumption . Wide frequency response [will discuss in a few days]. Robust to process and temperature variations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
