I was wondering if anyone could give me a little information on amplifiers.
What would be the best way to amplifying a small, 1v @ 1mA, very high frequency signal (3-5MHz) to a high power signal? The output signal would also need to be around 3-5MHz and something like 12v @ 1A.
My question is, what amplifier system would preform this task well, or the best? One option is using a class E amplifier with a square wave signal, or just purchasing a direct high power, high frequency OP AMP.
Unfortunately I don't think any of these "OP AMPS" exist, so I'm looking to build my own circuit. Preferably something simple, but anything that works will do.
Has anyone got any suggestions of which amplification system would work the best in this situation?
EDIT: After some advice, it looks as if the OPA564 chip would be the best fit for this task. What other components are necessary to operate the chip? Or can I just operate it straight out of the box? Basically I'd like some advice on how I can successfully operate the chip.
