The action of the audion as a detector and simple amplifier is explained, with the method of verification of the theory by means of oscillograms. [] Key Method To reinforce the oscillations in the grid circuit two methods are employed: first, to couple the grid circuit to the wing circuit and arrange the latter to permit radio frequency currents to pass freely in it; and second, to use a large inductance in the wing circuit, thereby tuning it to the incoming frequency (in conjunction with the capacity…
Negative Feedback, Amplifiers, Governors, and More [Historical]
The invention of the negative feedback amplifier by Harold S. Black (1898-1983) in 1928 is considered one of the great achievements in electronics. In fact, it is listed among the IEEE Milestones,
