I need to cascade amplifiers to achieve higher gain. But my signal output from first stage includes a DC offset. How can i remove the offset without using a coupling capacitor between the two amplifiers.
Please also let me know of any notes/tips on cascading amplifiers.
Thanks in advance

After added feedback oscillator it started to oscillate. I don't want it.
First comment, you don't necessarily need to cascade amplifiers, because the shunt has the same ground reference as the input signal. But with sufficient fast OPs, you possibly get stability problems due to the MOSFET input capacitance even with a single OP.

Hi everyone. Need some advice from you all. Basically when we cascade amplifiers we faced the problem of bandwidth shrinkage. Is there any way where i can resolve or at least reduce the bandwidth shrinkage.
From the text books for example Franco and such we can find numerous formulas to have the widest bandwidth however this is not a transistor

I have a question on the mixed signal circuit.

one year ago, I made that project,
I used two OP. I have found resistance values for cascade amplifiers
The first circuit had 10 of gain, then there were a filter and finally the second amplifier (100).
The cascade configuration avoid noise between stages.

This is quite wideband and cascade connections may not give this bandwidth and power level. Instead of that, "distributed amplifier configuration" should be used. For this kind of amplifiers, there are lots of document and paper. But it's quite difficult to implement.

cascade connection means that two or more stages are connected together in a way that output of previous stage is connected to input of next stage and so on.

What everyone described is a cascode circuit. cascade connection is a similar circuit but with a signal decoupling at the connection of the two stages, so that it is connected as in cascode for the DC current only (to get higher efficiency by using the same DC current for both stages), but still get two independent stages for the AC signal.

Everytime when I try to plot the noise figure from a cascade using standard s-parameters files involving amplifiers and filters in between I get a warning message in the microwave office (or similar like Genesys) saying that for example the filters does not contains noise parameters, so therefore the device will be treated as noiseless.

You can connect two MiniCircuit amplifiers in cascade. S12 vill be the sum of them both. Use PI-type attenuators at input, between amp's and at output to achieve correct overall gain AND to serve for low input/output VSWR. Careful PCB layout is important to maintain S12 isolation.

Thanks for the reply. I have cascade of 3 identical stages. Persistence paid off. Though I had 1000pF decoupling caps on the drains and no spurious oscillations were visible, after adding a 10uF on drains the gain jump up to 30dB. The peak is still at the lower frequency, but at least I have a fighting chance now!
