Book Description

The 34 chapters of the 2nd edition of How to Gain Gain give a detailed insight into a collection (54) of the most common gain producing, constant current generating possibilities, and electronic noise creation of triodes for audio pre-amplifier purposes. These chapters also offer complete sets of formulae to calculate gain, frequency and phase responses, and signal-to-noise ratios of certain building blocks built-up with this type of vacuum valve (tube). In all cases detailed derivations of the gain formulae are also presented.

All what is needed are the data sheet valve characteristic figures of the triode's mutual conductance, the gain factor and the internal plate (anode) resistance. To calculate frequency and phase responses of gain stages the different data sheet based input and output capacitances have to be taken into account too.
To calculate transfer functions and signal-to-noise ratios for any kind of triode driven gain stage, including all its bias setting, frequency, phase, and electronic noise influencing components, example Mathcad 11 worksheets as an essential simulation tool for each chapter allow easy follow-up and application of the respective formulae. Free download of all worksheets is guaranteed from the editor's web-site.

1.0 out of 5 stars What is this book for? 7 Mar. 2014
Format:Hardcover
This book is nothing more than a collection of algebra and math cad graphs of trivially simple and entirely theoretical circuit blocks. There are no ACTUAL measurmeents or useful practical discussion. Just endless derivations of, well, things that you could find on Google or the Radio Designer's handbook in five minutes.

The English translation is barely readable and most of the graphs are the size of postage stamps. The author also has the really annoying habit of using long strings of subscripts to label his variables, presumably to "help" the reader. Except they don't help because you keep having to go back page after page to remind yourself what each subscript is supposed to stand for. Yeesh!

This book is far too arcane for beginners, and far too mundane for those who can understand it. So what is it for?

Great book. Different way of thinking about things. Rather mathematical but interesting. Many thanks. Will consider the other book from same author.
