Fully Balanced Bridge Amplifier
This paper describes a bridge amplifier with balanced differential inputs, balanced outputs and a floating power supply for the final stages. Like a transformer, signal amplification without respect to ground is realized, but with a much wider frequency range and lower THD. The amplifier is comprised of a single amplifier with two feedback loops, whose function is described. Two output stages are simultaneously driven in push-pull thanks to the symmetrical and complementary differential circuit.
