Hysteresis is desirable in Schmitt-trigger because
Hysteresis is desirable in a Schmitt trigger because it prevents noise from causing false triggering.
Assertion (A): All oscillators require positive feedback for their operation.
Reason (R): Any circuit which is used to generate a periodic voltage without an a.c. input signal is called an oscillator.
Ail oscillators do not require positive feedback for their operation because if the positive resistance of the LC tank circuit is cancelled by introducing the right amount of negative resistance across the tank circuit, then the steady oscillation can be maintained. Some of the devices which possess negative resistance as mentioned above are dynatron, transitron, UJT and tunnel diode. Hence, assertion is not correct.
Each stage of a three stage amplifier without feedback has identical pole frequencies and its open loop transfer function is expressed as:
What is the maximum value of feedback factor βmax for which the amplifier remains stable?
The phase change may change Aβ to negative. This can happen only when the total change in the phase angle of becomes 1800 . The required phase change in one stage i.e should be 600 or,
∴ Here, ωc is the frequency at which the phase angle changes the sign. The value of Aβ at this frequency is
Assertion (A): In a crystal oscillator, it is necessary to enclose the crystal in a temperature controlled oven to achieve the frequency stability of the order of 1 partin 1010.
Reason (R): A crystal has very high Q as a resonant circuit, which results in good frequency stability for the oscillator.
Both assertion and reason are individually correct statements. The correct reason for the assertion is that the resonant frequency of the crystal is temperature dependent, therefore it is necessary to enclose the crystal in a temperature controlled oven to achieve the required frequeny stability.
Assertion (A): If the magnitude of loop gain of the amplifier is unity then the amplifier gives an a.c. output without any a.c. input signal.
Reason (R): The property of the regenerative feedback is utilised in oscillators.
The closed-iooD aain with positive feedback is
If the magnitude of loop gain i.e. |βA| - 1, then Af = ∞. Hence, the gain of the amplifier with positive feedback is infinite and the amplifier gives an a.c. output without any a.c. input signal. Thus, the amplifier acts as an oscillator. Regenerative or positive feedback is utilized in oscillators.
Hence, both assertion and reason are correct but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion.
