Abstract:

The most detrimental factor to the high frequency response of an amplifier is the total parasitic capacitance that shunts the output terminals. In particular, this shunt capacitance causes serious distortion to the step response and the amplitude response of the amplifier. Nevertheless, considerable improvement of the high frequency response can be achieved by the addition of a filter to the output terminals. This report shows the design of such a filter having five reactive elements, and a constant voltage source with a finite internal impedance. The criteria for design and two-fold Critically damped transient response and maximally flat amplitude response. The results of each design are compared graphically with an uncompensated reference obtained by letting each compensation element go to zero. These curves are indicated by the letter U. Also included in the results are the pole-zero plots of the transfer functions of each design. Finally, all figures are rounded off to four places and tabulated. Author
