There is an interest in sound, especially with the quality. Since the growth of the digital age, there are new products in the market that includes MP3, DVDs, home theatre, surround sound. There has been a growth in the entire market; however the consumer's requirements haven't changed. That's why in order to be competitive, I have enacted my project to deal with the study of the class A/B amplifier that will be power efficient and cost effective. The goal of this project is to examine the amplifiers already in the market and coming up with intelligent ways of modifying and designing the class A/B amplifier so that it can be competitive in the growing market of the digital age, and also be useful for learning purposes. The focus of my experiment will be first in the classes of the amplifiers that will include the class A, class AB, class B, class C, and class D amplifiers respectively.
