A filament heats the cathode, which emits a stream of electrons. They ﬂow through the grid, a wire mesh, and are attracted to the plate. Electrons are negatively charged, so applying a very small amount of positive voltage to the grid greatly reduces their ﬂow. This is the basis of ampliﬁcation: a small control signal greatly affects the device’s output. www. 20: On the left, a schematic of a dual triode vacuum tube. The part itself is shown on the right. Of course, in the real world tubes are almost unheard of today.
It also provides a tiny bit of localized power storage that helps overcome the instantaneous voltage drop between the power supply and the chip. Most designs also include a few tantalum bulk storage devices scattered around the PC board, also connected between Vcc and ground. Typically these are 10 to 50 μF each. They are even more effective bulk storage parts to help minimize the voltage drop chips would otherwise see. You’ll often see very small caps (on the order of 20 pF) connected to microprocessor drive crystals.
Writers love to describe transistor operation by analogy to water ﬂow or to the movement of holes and carriers within the silicon crystal. These are at best poor attempts to describe the quantum mechanics involved. 21, feeding current into the base allows current to ﬂow between the collector and emitter. And that’s about all you need to know to get a sense of how a transistor ampliﬁer works. 22 is a trivialized example of one. A microphone—which has a tiny output—drives current into the base of the transistor, which ampliﬁes the signal, causing the lamp to ﬂuctuate in rhythm with the speaker’s voice.
