A means to lower the input capacitance of an amplifier by having a grounded cathode (emitter, source) amplifier directly drive a grounded grid (base, gate) amplifer. Such a configuration of field-effect transistors or FETs is sometimes called a superfet. The principle action of this combination is to eliminate the Miller effect, which reduces the gain of a grounded cathode amplifier, particularly when a large plate resistance is used. An improperly biased or miswired cascode is called a cascrode.
I thought the cascode configuration would reduce the input capacitance and raise the gain, but it looks like I got a cascrode.

Jared Fogel, of Subway diet fame, lost 245 lbs in one year eating Subway fare. Lots of rumors about AIDS, coke, bypass surgery, but he apparently did it honestly.
Fat Bastard, to Austin Powers: "I went on the Subway diet, like Jared and lost 180 pounds. Unfortunately, now my neck looks like a vagina."
