Re: 5W Power Amp Peak Voltage


Yep. Erms = sqrt(Prms*R). Epp=2*sqrt(2)*Erms.

Someone like to confirm my maths....

Volts: PeakToPeak=44.73  Peak=22.36  RMS=15.81  
Power: Watts=5.0 dBW=6.99 dBm=36.99

Hello to all.

What is the peak voltage that i should be seeing on my scope from the output of the 5W power amp.?

Assuming it's into the perfect 50 ohm load that is.

Kind regards, James.
