Active devices such as transistors or Op-Amps have bandwidth limitations that can result in instability or undesirable dynamic response in feedback circuits. As gain decreases with frequency, feedback-amplifier port-resistance values also change and effectively become reactive. These bandwidth-related reactances can resonate with other circuit elements.

Chapter Contents:

  • Active Device Behavior above Bandwidth
  • BJT High-Frequency Model
  • Impedance Transformations in the High-Frequency Region
  • Reactance Chart Representation of β-Gyrated Circuits
