  6. Wideband amplifier- Class B Vcc Rb1 Vout RL Vin Compared to Class A: Greater efficiency Larger distortion

  7. Amplifier- Class C Vcc Vout L RL Collector Base Vin Emitter High efficiency Larger distortion

  8. Operating condition Class C amplifiers would improve the efficiency by operating in nonlinear regime, however the input has to be a sinusoidal wave Some means are needed to remove the distortion and restore the signal to its original sine shape

  9. Operation principle The active device conducts for less than 180 degrees of the input cycle The output resembles a series of pulses more than it does the original signal The pulses can be converted back to sine waves by an output tuned circuit

If the frequency is derived from a crystal oscillator with a temperature coefficient of +1ppm/degree C and it transmits at exactly 146 MHz at 20 degree, find the transmitting frequencies at the two extremes of the operating range

  25. Mixers A mixer is a nonlinear circuit that combines two signals in such a way as to produce the sum and difference of the two input frequencies at the output Any nonlinear device can operate as a mixer Vout = A Vi + B Vi2 + C Vi3 + … Second order effects f1- f2 f1+f2 f1 f2
