TRANSISTORIZED RF AMPLIFIER
The RF amplifier stages illustrated in figure 1-2 are representative of those in
a typical two-stage circuit used in an FM receiver.
The two stages contain PNP
transistors connected in the common-base configuration.
Coupling between the
by circuits that are variations of the one shown in E of figure 1-1. Operating the
two RF amplifiers in the common-base configuration eliminates the necessity for
neutralization and minimizes changes in RF gain that may be caused by variations in
the supply voltage. The three tunable tank circuits provide a means of obtaining
the desired RF selectivity.
