Abstract : The patent describes a symmetrical waveform rate-of-rise clipper class A amplifier having a pair of collector-to-base coupled transistors, the second in the series being in emitter follower output with a feedback through reversely oriented diodes to the base input of the first in the series of transistors. The input to the base electrode of the first in the series of transistors is through an isolation means, such as a resistor or amplifier, and this base electrode is stabilized in voltage bias from a voltage divider circuit to minimize amplifier output jitter and to insure fast rise rate for short rise time of the output signals.
