Abstract

In automatic time domain equalizers, a key problem is to multiply the signal received by a coefficient positive or negative without distorting the signal. An analog circuit using an operational amplifier A and a FET circuit permits positive and negative gain control. If the dynamic resistance of the FET circuit connected between the ground and the negative input of amplifier A, versus voltage V (v being the control voltage applied to the FET gate) is rho (v), then the circuit gain G is derived from the following equations: V(out) = Ao (V(K)-V(J)) (1). where Ao is the open-loop gain of amplifier A, and V(K) and V(J) are the voltages applied at the positive and the negative inputs of the amplifier, A, respectively.

Positive and Negative Voltage Gain Control

In automatic time domain equalizers, a key problem is to multiply the signal received by a coefficient positive or negative without distorting the signal. An analog circuit using an operational amplifier A and a FET circuit permits positive and negative gain control. If the dynamic resistance of the FET circuit connected between the ground and the negative input of amplifier A, versus voltage V (v being the control voltage applied to the FET gate) is rho (v), then the circuit gain G is derived from the following equations: V(out) = Ao (V(K)-V(J)) (1). where Ao is the open-loop gain of amplifier A, and V(K) and V(J) are the voltages applied at the positive and the negative inputs of the amplifier, A, respectively.

Thus the gain G can be varied under the control of v and it is positive or negative depending on the values of rho with respect to the values of resistors R1 R2 R3 and R4
