Class AB amplifier 12V

admin October 7, 2011 10 Comments
Class AB Audio Power Amplifier. Class AB amplifier is an amplifier configuration that stands somewhere between Class A and Class B configurations. A small diode biasing voltage keeps the output transistors ON even if there is no input signal. The transistors will operate normally in their active region for any small input signal.In simple words, one transistor will be ON for more than one half cycle of the input signal.  This avoids crossover distortion. Anyway, a small amount of...

MOSFET amplifier circuit – 10 Watts

admin March 10, 2011 2 Comments
10 Watts MOSFET Amplifier Description. The diagram shown here is of a 10W MOSFET amplifier circuit that requires only a single supply. Single rail supply is seldom used in Class-B power amplifiers. Anyway, for low power applications like this it’s quite fine. Actually I got this circuit from an old cassette player that is still working and I am publishing it as it is. The powers MOSFETs BD512 and BD522 are obsolete now and so you may use any...
