I have a small device expecting a signal in the 8MHz range of 2V peak-to-peak.
The output of my signal generator (or rather the device that outputs the modulated signal) is only at 1V peak to peak.
My idea is to construct a (very) simple amplifier to boost the signal. The only requirement for this amplifier, is that it is
- small, simple, and (relatively) low noise
- non-inverting. Non-inverting is very important, as it is an analog picture signal.
As I understand it, I'd simply need a single transistor, but I'm not sure how to wire it up, so that it acts as signal amplitude doubler or something. The signal source is stable, i.e. the amplitude never goes beyond 1V and the amplitude is never lower.
Perhaps using an op-amp circuit would be better, given the output is not necessarily high impedance?
I'm not sure where to start, even though the application is "pretty simple" at first glance.
