Abstract:

Investigations were made to increase the dynamic range and frequency coverage of solid-state VHF receivers. The following aspects are considered 1 A theoretical and experimental comparison is made between a field-effect transistor and a conventional transistor amplifier in respect to intermodulation distortion and noise figure 2 balanced amplifiers with feedback are considered for improving dynamic range 3 the phase and amplitude criteria at the frequency crossover of partitioned amplifiers are investigated and 4 experimental data are presented on a doubly balanced mixer, a logarithmic amplifier, and a voltage-tuned filter covering from 650 to 900 Mc.
