Abstract. Bipolar transistor is shown to constitute a controllable clipper of high-power signals with the range of about 40 dB. Possible applications of bipolar transistors in overload-protection devices for strip power amplifiers as well as in modulators of high-power signal amplitude are described.
Keywords: bipolar transistor, modulator, strip power amplifier, pass band.
