So a passive switch, is a diode, it means that it can only pass as much power as it took to open the gate.

Even with this restriction, I've just come up with a sure fire way to get x2 amps, down one wire, hopefully the full volts.
(Once u get on with all the tricky business of actually getting it to work for real.)

If I have two gates in parallel, one normally open gate, and one normally closed gate.

I only have to open 1 gate, for both gates to be open, and I only have to close 1 gate, for both gates to be closed.

If you have your 5 amp 5 volt signal, and u want 10 amps 5 volts, when the sensor is on, open the closed gate, then using an inverter,
when the sensor is off, you close the open gate.

I don't know how hard its going to be to actually do it, but that sounds like a really good idea for switching diodes.

Its a sure thing, that with a technique, passive equipment can actually amplify.

Ill give it my best shot, and see if I can get it to work, If I do, I will put it in a series compound and get x64, see if i can!!!
If it doesnt work, I'll have to admit I cant do electronics yet good to enough to get these cool ideas to happen, because ee is tricky

Its hard to make things in the right topology without a nasty short killing the project.

Complete nonsense.
  1. A diode is an element that passes current in one direction but not in the reverse direction. This has nothing to do with the power being applied.
  2. A passive switch can very well control a much higher current aka power than is required to control the switch. A good example is a relay. A very common type of relay used by the billions in household appliances uses a 5 V coil at aroung 1/4 W to control mains voltage (e.g. 115 V or 230 V) and power rating2 of 2000 W or more.
    In case you are going to argue whether a relay is passive ore active: in that case please define what make a "passive switch" for you.

That is your real problem. So far you haven't shown us any, not a single on, working circuit.

when the sensor is off, you close the open gate.
Makes no sense at all. Which gate are you talking about? Where will the extra 5 A come from?

The only sure thing is that this will not actually amplify.

Not because ee is tricky but because you insist on refusing any advice you've been given. And that has been quite a lot so far.

Seems hard for you to make anything right - at least when it comes to electronics.
