This circuit alters gain automatically in accordance with the strength of the signal at its entrance. The circuit- which is reliant upon the principle of current and not voltage difference- is characterized by its minimal area and therefore economic price, minimal consumption of electric energy, in addition to high speed and resistance to temperature change.
