Distortion in rc coupled amplifier

  1. Nov 13, 2011 #1
    when i was making a rc coupled amplifier but as soon as i connect the input signal the signal gets distorted.can any one tell me the reason for that and how to avoid the distortion?

    Yes, you might be driving the amplifier with too much signal, or you might have the bias wrong.

    Post a diagram of your circuit and it may be possible to see what is wrong.

    How do you know it was distorted? Were you trying to drive a speaker with the output?

    no. actually i was making a small signal amplifier to understand the working of it.i fed a sine wave of 50mv and connected the output and input to CRO.it shows that input signal is not at all sinusoidal sine.

    thanks for paying attention.

    Can you post a schematic of your circuit?
