Sample text

This statement alone needs a qualifier in that the amplifying device or system requires power to make the signal larger. An amplifier is powered via an external DC source such as a DC power supply or a set of batteries. The external power source allows the amplifier to use a small signal at the input such as a signal from a microphone to control larger signals at the output of the amplifier. For example, a typical microphone does not have sufficient power output to drive a loudspeaker directly.

By measuring the DC resistance one can then deduce whether the component is a resistor or an inductor. Other types of inductor have markings that show a three-digit number, with the first two digits indicating microhenries and a third digit for the multiplier or number of zeroes after the two digits for the inductance value in microhenries. For example, an inductor with a marking of “470” is 47 μH (Figure 2-37). FIGURE 2-37 Inductors with three-digit markings. 8 mH. 8 henries, the units of inductance are in nanohenries instead of microhenries.

See the first two diodes (top and middle) in Figure 2-39. FIGURE 2-39 Diodes and a rectifier with bands to denote their cathodes. For small-signal diodes, there are mostly standard silicon diodes such as the 1N914 or 1N4148. These diodes are generally used for switching, RF, and biasing circuits. In contrast, silicon rectifier diodes are generally not suitable for RF (radio-frequency) circuits but are suitable for higher-power applications such as power rectifiers for 50 Hz or 60 Hz AC power supplies.
