Buffer Stage

 

a stage of an amplifier of a radio transmitter or receiver using an electron tube or transistor. It serves mainly to eliminate or diminish the effect (reaction) of the following stage (after the buffer stage) on the preceding stage (in general, to eliminate the effect of load variations on a highly stable signal source).
