Active bias circuit for operating push-pull amplifiers in class A mode

Abstract: A transistor audio amplifier of the Class AB complementary symmetry type is biased with a new bias circuit to keep both transistors on during all normal signal conditions. The bias circuit includes a pair of series connected VBE Multipliers with an interconnection between the two multipliers receiving signal feedback from the amplifier output such that the Multipliers can bias both complementary transistors on for all normal signal operating conditions.
