EE-305.74 3
Need for multi stage amplifier

## • An amplifier is the basic building block of most electronic

systems.
• The output from a single stage amplifier is usually
insufficient to drive an output device.
• Additional amplification over 2 or 3 stages is necessary.
• To achieve this, the output of one stage is connected to
the input of the next stage.
• The resulting system is referred to as the multi stage
amplifier or cascaded amplifier.
• High gains can be obtained from a multi stage amplifier.

Multi stage amplifier

## • A transistor circuit containing more than one stage of

amplification is known as multi stage amplifier.
• A number of single stage amplifiers are connected in
• Also called as cascaded amplifier.
• The output of first stage is connected to the input of the next
stage through a suitable coupling device and so on.
