RF Tension Follower

    Hi All !

    I'm trying to do a simple tension follower for frecuency
    up to 100MHz. Actually I'm using a BF998 with a R=1k attached
    to the source, but i'm observing that the tension output not
    resembles very well the tension input (about a 1/3 attenuation)
    , Is there any simple circuit for doing an analog tension follower (high
    input impedance) that works at high frecuencies ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Note: For USA engineers, translate "tension" to "voltage".

    Also, I believe the specific circuit you are referring to is an
    "emitter follower".

    1K ohms is a little high for 100 MHz. Try 330 ohms and see if it gets
    better.

    Ops!, Sorry =D
    That's right, an emitter followe is also refered as voltage follower
    and common colector circuits.
    Yep, thanks ! =D
