Few square waves and rise time measurements of the First One amplifier module.

1. 50 kHz
2. 200 kHz
3. mid signal level rise time
4. high signal level rise time

Calculation from picture 4, 60 V (90% Vpp) in 250 ns results in:

Slew Rate of 240 V/us

Measurement showing the First One's behaviour at 2,77 MHz sine signal.

We can see 0,9 Vpp input sine signal present on CH2 and 14,3 Vpp output signal on CH1

Calculations from the plot:

1. Voltage gain is x15,89 or +24 dB at 2,77 MHz

2. Linear voltage gain of the First One is +27 dB, meaning that 2,77 MHz is exactly -3 dB gain point

3. Phase shift at 2,77 MHz is 76

4. 10 Ohm zobel load (Zr+Zc) dissipates 2,4 Wrms at 2,77 MHz

The task was to find a proper output inductor and test the amp to all possible values of capacitance as a load, to be sure there are no chances for the amp to oscillate, no matter what kind of speaker cable is connected to its output terminals.

Lowest possible output serial inductance to fulfill upper demands is 0,2 uH, very practical small size still to be located on PCB.

Few pictures attached as follows:

1. Plot of 10 kHz/20 Vpp square waves on 6 Ohm +1 uF load. Upper trace amp's output in front of inductor, lower trace behind the 0,2 uH inductor.

2. 32 ppm THD10k spectrum 20 Vrms on 6 Ohm load (60 Wrms/6 Ohm)

3. 24 ppm THD10k spectrum 20 Vrms on 6 Ohm + 1 uF (90 Wrms/4,3 Ohm impedance). We can see that 1 uF loading capacitor completely filtered out third harmonic and elevated the second for 5 dB. The whole THD droped for 8 ppm but since third harmonic is also present in the input signal, this THD reduction is actually bad, not preserving the input signal integrity.

4. 0,2 uH output inductor and 1 uF loading capacitor in series with on/off switch

5. Complete measuring assembly

Hi LC,
Interested for a pair.

Thanks,
