Bias Voltage

Some articles on bias, voltage, bias voltage:

Grid Bias
... Grid bias is a DC voltage applied to electron tubes (or valves in British English) with three electrodes or more, such as triodes ... Bias point in small-signal applications is set to minimize distortion and achieve sufficiently low power draw ... set for maximum available output power or voltage, with a secondary target of either low distortion or high efficiency ...
Varieties - Condenser Microphone
... The voltage maintained across the capacitor plates changes with the vibrations in the air, according to the capacitance equation (C = Q⁄V), where Q = charge in coulombs, C ... The capacitance of the capsule (around 5 to 100 pF) and the value of the bias resistor (100 MΩ to tens of GΩ) form a filter that is high-pass for the audio signal, and low-pass for the bias voltage ... the charge is practically constant and the voltage across the capacitor changes instantaneously to reflect the change in capacitance ...

... A bias voltage is applied between the two contacts ... An energy diagram of the metal-oxide-metal device under bias is shown in the top figure ... This minimum energy for the electron corresponds with a minimum bias voltage, which is the onset for the additional contribution ...

Famous quotes containing the word bias:

    The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation, and the credit of truth and honesty is as safe; nor have I any fear that a skeptical bias can be given by leaning hard on the sides of fate, of practical power, or of trade, which the doctrine of Faith cannot down-weigh.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
