Two distinct configurations of small-signal amplifiers, consisting hybrid combination of BJT-FET-BJT in Triple Darlington topology, are proposed and qualitatively analyzed perhaps for the first time. The first proposed amplifier crops high voltage with moderate current gain and bandwidth in 1-15mV input signal range at 1 KHz frequency. However, the second amplifier is configured by creating certain modifications in the first circuit. This amplifier produces about double voltage and current gain than the first amplifier circuit with almost half bandwidth in 1-4mV input-signal-range at 1 KHz frequency. Both the amplifier circuits include two additional biasing resistances. Variations in voltage gain as a function of frequency and different biasing resistances, temperature dependency of performance parameters, bandwidth and total harmonic distortion of the amplifiers are also perused. The proposed amplifiers can be successfully implemented as high power gain small-signal amplifiers in audio-frequency-range because of the obtained values of the current and voltage gains which are higher than unity.
