The design of low distortion transistor amplifiers becomes complicated when optimum performance is desired over a fairly wide range of environmental conditions. Conventional solutions are discussed along with their limitations. A new approach is presented which eliminates the need for matching thermistor curves, diode or VEB curves and beta variations with temperature. The engineer is now free to design his circuit for optimum performance-temperature compensation is applied as a simple -package- after proper room temperature operation is accomplished.
