    The design of an integrated wide-band variable-gain amplifier with maximum dynamic range is approached by considering three basic bipolar transistor configurations from which all others can be derived. The analysis of noise and of distortion shows the importance of transistor base resistance in all three circuits. On the basis of these analyses, one configuration is shown to yield maximum dynamic ... View full abstract»

    The design of a low-distortion, wide-band amplifier with 75-/spl Omega/ input and output impedances is described. Simultaneous shunt and series feedback is used and design equations are derived for terminal impedances, forward gain, loop gain, and noise figure. The advantages of a Darlington connection for low distortion are described. For 0-dBm signal levels, the amplifier achieves third-order in... View full abstract»

    A high-frequency nonlinear model of FET's is developed in which all sources of nonlinearities, including the output conductance, are accounted for. The distortion resulting from this model is represented using the Volterra series approach, and a high degree of accuracy between the theory and the measured results is obtained. Although the theory holds only for circuits that exhibit a slight deviati... View full abstract»

    Describes the design of a high-performance monostable multivibrator. The effects of given parameters on pulse width stability are studied, and sources of instability are analyzed. The statistics of the pulsewidth stability are also determined by measuring actual devices. View full abstract»

    A current source based upon a pair of transistors in a cascode connection is discussed. The emitter-referenced cascode current source can offer as much as two orders of magnitude improvement in output resistance when compared to other current sources. View full abstract»

  • A simple driving and frequency characterization technique for two-phase charge-coupled devices

    A driving technique for two-phase devices is described which requires only one clock both to drive the charge-coupled device (CCD) and to reset a floating output diffusion. This driving technique has permitted the development of a simple method of frequency characterization of two-phase CCD's. This involves the use of a single clock pulse of variable mark-space ratio, allowing the measurement of h... View full abstract»

    A technique is proposed for stabilizing the output amplitude of a variable-frequency RC sine-wave oscillator. Amplitude settling time is reduced by converting amplitude to a d.c. voltage having only a small ripple content, which requires little filtering. A relationship between amplitude transient response and harmonic distortion is demonstrated, and the results are compared to those obtained by m... View full abstract»

    Using the microwave thin-film technology, the class-A common emitter transistor pre- and power amplifiers fabricated on a sapphire substrate were initially optimized for the gain and VSWR's simultaneously over the 2-6.5 GHz range and then adjusted for the large-signal conditions. The large-signal adjustments were proven to be quite beneficial in maximizing the power-handling capability and in mini... View full abstract»

    A simple bipolar transistor amplifier generates subharmonics at frequencies well below f/SUB β/. A study of the results of a computer-aided design program reveals that a large nonlinear capacitance appears at the transistor input. The source of the nonlinear capacitance is found.

    Economical active realizations of low-Q, all-pole, low-pass transfer functions are presented. The realizations allow a unidirectional sequence of functional tuning by trimming only resistors. Also, they have low sensitivities to the passive element variations. Experimental results verified the ease of tuning, the low sensitivity, and the low dependence on temperature and power supply variations. View full abstract»
