Automatic gain controlled amplifier apparatus

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #4016557.

In an analog data acquisition system, used for digital treatment, analog signals of different levels received from remote locations are amplified with a selected gain before being converted by a common A/D converter. A discretely variable gain amplifier is used in which a series of programmed predetermined ranges are sequentially tested against the capability of the A/D converter in relation to the particular input analog signal. The first acceptable gain is selected and a code can be used to identify the selected gain for digital treatment of the derived corresponding digital signal.
