AB100 Class AB Power Amplifier
AB100 Amplifier - Micro Article by Nelson Pass
Since villagers armed with pitchforks and torches have begun camping
out my front door demanding a Class AB power amplifier, and
Whereas, I am inclined to demonstrate my goodwill in this manner and
do in fact have a 13 year old piece laying around unpublished,
I Hereby Present the AB100 Class AB Bipolar power amplifier.
Rails: +/-50V or so
Gain: 36 dB (this was the request of the people who commissioned
this but did not want to pay for it)
Bandwidth: 5 Hz to 100 KHz (-3 dB)
Damping Factor: about 500
Maximum power: 100 Watts 8 ohms, 200 Watts 4 ohms
Slew Rate: 30 V/uS
Bias Current: about 0.08 A per channel
Following are several graphics. (Unfortunately I scanned them in the
distant past, so the quality is not up to my usual standards)
Let It Not Be Said: That I never did anything for you....
wow. it's a hard acupation:P
do i see a little aleph with a extra stage, inspiration in the front end there?
the TIP 142/147 are To220 right?
Or at least less rejected heat than 100WPC class-A. :) :) :) :) :)
Ok, which of the smaller transistors need to be mounted on the main heatsinks for thermal tracking?
TIP-142 and -147 are available in TO-247 -- hooray!
What can be substituted for the 2SA1110 and 2SC2590? (If anything...)
after enough staring , everything is Aleph lookalike
I know .......
6L6. heat is a GOOD thing:D:D atleast up here close to the north pole:D:D (santa is freezing)
Looking at it a bit more...
Is 100uf necessary on the input? Or is that just insurance against the rest of the world?
Does the pot adjust bias or output DC offset?
Are the neg gate diodes 4004's and the positive rail 4001's, or is that a typo? Should they all be 4004's?
Is everything, as currently drawn in the schematic, an electrical junction? Specifically, look to the right of R4.
Approx. how many VA, per channel, is required of the power transformer?
i bet they all should be 4004. 4001 will burn very fast:)
the pot seams to be for bias.
