The X-Files

 
Abstract
 

Fox Mulder isn't available to make this presentation, so you will have to settle for me describing a circuit which can be thought of as a modification of the improved version of George Wilson's current mirror.  It involves an X connection of the bases or gates depending on the technologies you have available. It's not a mirror, but rather has a (surprising?) property that lends itself to several small but powerful circuits.

 

Sheerluck Ohms and the 33dB solution

Abstract

This talk will present a simple arrangement which makes a robust class A power stage using a bipolar output transistor.  The voltage gain of the stage will be shown to be quite stable over a range of outputs, supply, and loads. Devotees of the great detective will recognize the allusion to a  smaller amount of quite another sort of solution.
