Simulation Procedure:
• Open MULTISIM Software.
• Click=> New => Design1
• Click save as in Desk Top rename the Design1 to your circuit multistage amplifier.
• Go to Component tool bar and select the components.
• Draw the above circuits using the components that are available in the tool bar and then save the circuit.
• Double click DC_POWER its value above mentioned, 6V DC.
• Click simulate button or press F5 key => RUN
• Then double click connected in the output of the volt meter and measure input and output voltages.
• Then Change input voltage, again measure and print the output voltages.

Thus the circuit RC Coupled amplifier (Implementation of the concept of multistage amplifier) are designed, simulated and verified through the output with cro.

Questions with answers:
1. What is difference between Amplifier and Attenuator?
Both are linear systems but Amplifier’s gain is more than unity (+ve dB), Attenuator gain is less than unity (-ve dB)

2.Which Amplifier will amplify voltage and current?
common emitter amplifier

3. What are the advantages over single stage amplifier?
In single stage amplifier if we try to get more gain, bandwidth will be decreased viceversa. So get more bandwidth and gain combination we generally use multistage amplifier. but multistage amp bandwidth is less than single stage.

4.what are the classifications of Multistage amplifiers?
Based on Active device used: BJT and FET
Based on type of coupling: RC coupled, Transformer coupled and Direct coupled amplifiers.

5. Define cut off frequency?
It is the frequency at which the gain is 70.07% of it’s maximum or 3dB lesser than maximum
