    Is Teletronics 12-212 2.4 GHz 500 mW Indoor Amplifier a class A or AB? What is the power requirement for it?

    The 12-212 2.4 GHz Indoor Amplifier is a class AB amplifier.

    A class A amplifier has a single output transistor which conducts for a full 3600 of the cycle of the input waveform.

    Class B and AB both have two output transistors. For class B, the output transistors only conduct for one-half, that is, 1800 of the input waveform.

    Class AB amplifier's output transistors conduct somewhere between 1800 and 3600 of the input waveform. The class AB amplifier operates as a combination of classes A and B.

    That is, for small power outputs the AB amplifier operates as a class A amplifier but changes to a class B amplifier for larger current outputs. Class AB is more linear than Class B but less efficient, but more efficient than class A

    The power requirement for a 12-212 Indoor amplifier is 9V, 1.5A. Another class AB amplifier is the Teletronics 900MHz 12-105 BDA with power requirements of 12V, 4A.

    Other classes of amplifiers include Class C, D, E, F, G, and H. For other amplifiers and repeaters, check out this page.
