Amplifiers increase the magnitude of the input signal.

Gain is a number (with no units) used to describe how much bigger a signal becomes when it is amplified.

Amplifier Gain

Gain Calculations

Amplifiers have one or more of the following properties

Voltage Bandwidth

This is the range of frequencies where the amplifier output VOLTAGE is at least 70% of the maximum amplifier output.

The graph shows the bandwidth going from 1Hz up to 1 MHz.

Power Bandwidth

This is the range of frequencies where the amplifier output POWER is at least 50% of the maximum amplifier output.

The graph shows the bandwidth going from 1Hz up to 1 MHz.

Examples

Microphone Pre-amplifier

This has a high input impedance, a low output impedance and a useful voltage gain. The gain needed depends on the type of microphone and on whether the power amplifier sub-system provides any additional voltage gain.

Voltage Follower used as a Voltage Regulator

A Zener diode is used to provide a reference voltage. The voltage regulator provides any required output current up to its rated maximum without the output voltage significantly changing. The voltage gain is 1.

Power Amplifier (audio or radio frequency)

This sub-system can have a voltage gain as low as 1 but the output current is generally much larger than the input current.
