A Low Noise Approach to the Mixer Stage Amplifier
The first stage of an amplifier is usually the predominan source of noise in the output. If conventional controls are not optimumly adjusted, the mixer stage becomes a potential source of noise. This paper analyzes the conventional methods of signal mixing and presents a novel operational amplifier approach which promises 14 to 20 dB less noise at operating levels.
