An obstacle blocking wide acceptance of power MOSFETs in audio amplifiers is the lack of an automatic bias technique. A unique circuit topology senses and maintains quiescent current despite the half-wave pulses inherent in class AB operation. Performance of the circuit, consisting of little more than a different amplifier driving a totem-pole output stage, rivals that of more complex circuits.
