I have worked for many years with the VME team in Knutsford. Last time I popped in there were 4 Lab Gruppen
power amplifiers on the bench looking a little forlorn.
Fixing the FP6400 : March / April 2020
The FP6400 had a failed channel, which allowed cross check from one channel to another, it also proved that the
power supply had not failed.
I still had to travel up the learning curve on how this class of amplifiers work, I will try to share that learning here
What is the theory of these amplifiers? How to they achieve efficiency?
Lets look at a standard Class B Amplifier and it's theoretical efficiency.
And that is 'all she wrote' as Dave from EEV Blog would say :
I MUST fill the page out, I collected so many scope traces and spent so much time fining this thing.....! ( AG Nov 20 )
