I’m trying to wrap my head around the emitter follower.
I’m currently using it to simulate a ~12V AC coming from a intercom ringer (about 700Hz).
My input is a function generator and I would like my output to drive quite a bit of current. Right now the best I could do is drive a few mA but in the process I’m setting my \$R_E\$ on fire. Is there a way to improve the efficiency of this circuit? Or I’m better off using another buffer?
