Pulse Ampfier

Hi all,

I am looking for a pulse amplifier, that is capable of handling 10Amp, Vcc= 60V, and that can work up to 10MHz. can someone give some advise.

Re: Pulse Ampfier

If you select fast opamp and add external transistors to boost current you will have a fast pulse amplifier.
Example in the attached drawing ..

Re: Pulse Ampfier

Hi Ianp,

Can please tell me how to control this op amp. I was thinking about a simple CE transistor with RC and RE resistors, It that ok? Any comment will me appreciate it.
Thanks for you help.

Re: Pulse Ampfier

You cannot use "simple CE transistor" because you can not find transistor that has reqired gain at this conditions - 10A and 10MHz. In most casses there is sharp gain decreese in region above several amps, severam megahertz.


In fact it is not simple task, as you can think. For example there is power operational amplifiers that furfill this requirements, but they a expensive . Prices for Apex chips are in region above several hundred $ . . .

Re: Pulse Ampfier

If you say 10MHz and 10A, then what impulse width do you have in mind and what peec current would you like to have, 10A?
As this circuit increases the HF response of an opamp, it also increases the output current. Depending on the peek value of pulses current you may need to use 2-transistors per rail in darlington configuration ..
