Abstract : The patent describes an amplifier using a Schmitt trigger. When the amplifier provides a positive signal the input to the Schmitt trigger increases due to a feedback network. When the input signal becomes more positive than the voltage at the noninverting terminal, the Schmitt trigger reverses state and supplies a negative output. When the input, due to the feedback network, is more negative than the voltage at the noninverting terminal, the Schmitt trigger once again reverses state. An inductor and a capacitor function as a low-pass filter at the output.
