Default Option to High Voltage Medium (Video) and High Power Devices for Output and VAS Stage

Motorola's new approach arround 1977 - serial cascaded power devices instead very special BjT's with High Voltage UCE

In the German magazine "Funkschau" issue 4/1977, page 61/161 I read the article
"Reihengekoppelte Ausgangsstufe ermöglicht hohe Leistung bei niederigen Kosten" Translate:
Cascaded Power Follower allows High Power and Low Cost at the same Time

A serious option to (often hard to find) high voltage power devices (and also VAS medium power) transistors with not very favorable parameters.

Here my translation from German language:

In opposite to a normal cascode - i. e. fix voltage for the lower transistor - it is to see instead the typical zener also a resistor (see attachement). But similar to the normal cascode, the lower transistor is to be drive while the upper works as a slave. Because the bias voltage (0,5 UCC) corresponds to half the supply voltage UCC , UCE from upper and lower transistor always has the same value. This concept was developed in Motorola's European consumer laboratory

For this approach Motorola has developed a very special series of power devices with very high hfe (>20 at 10A).
There are three Uce groups:
1) 50V: BD364/365
2) 60V: BD366/367
3) 80V: BD368/369

The number of cascaded series devices is of course not limited to two pcs.

The original application paper from Motorola wanted.

Most of the useful VAS transistors from my line up about
High Voltage BjT's for Pre-driver stages of High Power Amplifier - Overview
are obsolete, particularly the SANYO ones. Therefore I still looking for the mentioned Motorola application note from post #1.
