  Gain control in signal processing with feed-forward gain correction patent invention
Once the signal has been algebraically compared, it is compared again with the values of previous comparisons in a second comparator or estimator module 112, which essentially is used to estimate the required receiver gain for future samples.
Once the signal has been algebraically compared with a target level, the result feeds into a second comparator/estimator module 212, and it is compared again with the value of the previous gain stored in a storage module 214.
Contrasting with the conventional method in which a gain compensation based on a previous set of signal samples are used to process a current set of signal samples, this feed-forward gain control loop provides a finer gain compensation because the same set of signal samples are used as a base to obtain the estimated gain.

 Gain   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
A gain of 10 would imply that a property of the signal (usually voltage or power) had increased by a factor of 10.
In antenna design, gain is the logarithm of the ratio of the antenna's radiation pattern to that of some ideal antenna, typically the theoretical isotropic antenna.
Gain is calculated by fair market value or proceed from sale of the investment minus the sum of purchase price and all costs associated with it.

 IF Signal Processing Components and subsystems
This is achieved by controlling amplifier gain using a coupled linear detector to rectify the RF signal and amplify the detected signal, using one or more operational amplifiers to provide the appropriate DC-control voltage.
Gain control range can be measured using either a swept or CW source and the appropriate power-measuring device.
The modulated RF signal is applied to the amplifier input and adjusted until the detected video output voltage reaches the specified output voltage (typically 4 to 5 volts).

 Signal Processors
A filter is a circuit that sharply reduces the amplitude of signals of frequency outside of specified limits.
A graph of the frequency response of the filter shows that the amplitude of a signal decreases as the frequency moves beyond the cutoff.
The measurements derived from each filter in the analysis bank are used to control the amplitude of the signal from the corresponding filter in the processing bank.

 Humanistic Intelligence: `WearComp' as a new framework and application for intelligent signal processing
The wearable signal processing hardware, which began as a cumbersome backpack-based photographic apparatus of the 1970s, and evolved into a clothing-based apparatus in the early 1980s, currently provides the computational power of a UNIX workstation concealed within ordinary-looking eyeglasses and clothing.
Although the device may implement very sophisticated signal processing algorithms, the cause and effect relationship of this processing to its input (typically from the environment or the user's actions) should be clearly and continuously visible to the user, even when the user is not directly and intentionally interacting with the apparatus.
However, it may also be used to shield signal processing circuits from outside interference, or as a ground plane for various forms of conformal antennas sewn into the clothing[14].

 Analog Devices: Analog Dialogue: Integrated Solutions for CCD Signal Processing
Today, all of the signal processing steps required--from the output of the CCD through the digital output of the A/D converter--can be accomplished with a single integrated circuit.
DC offsets of this magnitude are generally not compatible with CMOS signal processing ICs, because most scanner and high end camera systems use 5-V supplies for the signal processors, while camcorders and digital cameras use supplies as low as 2.7 volts.
The distortion numbers are not of interest in imaging applications because CCD signals are not sinusoidal in nature, and the front-end of the ADC samples the CCD signal only during a relatively slow-moving portion of the waveform.

 Dynamics Signal Processing
Dynamic processing is one of the most effective tools that a recording engineer has to make sure all of those important parts that have been recorded will actually be heard in the final product.
When a different signal is put into the sidechain, the compressor operates according to the signal fed to the sidechain input rather than to the main input.
In other words the main signal (going into the regular input and output) is changed by the level variations of the signal plugged into the sidechain input.

 UMass Lowell Center for Atmospheric Research/ Digisonde DPS
The analog signal is digitized at a rate such that each sample is made an integer number of cycles apart (i.e., at the same phase point) and therefore looks like a DC level until the phase modulation creates a sudden shift in the sampled phase point.
This process is essentially the same as averaging, but since complex signals are used, signals of the same phase are required if the summation is going to increase the signal amplitude.
By processing every range bin first by pulse compression (12 to 21 dB of signal processing gain) then by coherent integration, all echoes from each range have gained 21 to 42 dB of processing gain (depending on the waveform used and the length of integration) before any attempt is made to detect them.

 Signal Processing Fundamentals
Usually the maximum output signal is restricted by the size of the power supplies (you cannot swing more voltage than is available), while the minimum output signal is fixed by the noise floor (you cannot put out an audible signal less than the noise).
This clever bit of processing is normally done using a VCA (voltage controlled amplifier) whose gain is determined by a control voltage derived from the input signal.
Expanders are signal processing units used to increase (expand) the dynamic range of the signal passing through it.

 What is a lock-in amplifier?
It is this part of the instrument which demodulates the frequency of interest and it should be noted that its output is also a function of the relative phase angle between the input signal and the associated reference signal.
The signal path of a lock-in amplifier is gain adjusted to achieve a specific input sensitivity when the output of the instrument is displaying full scale.
However, the input circuits are designed to handle signals that are many hundreds of times larger than these calibrated input maxima thus giving the instrument the capability to make reliable measurements even when the signal of interest is dwarfed by other unwanted stimuli.

 [Prosig.com] Dynamic Range and Overall Level: What Are They?
In a very simple sense suppose we have an artificial signal which consists of a sinewave at a large amplitude A for the first half and that this is followed by a sinewave with a small amplitude a for the second half.
Typically the ratio between the peak of a signal and the rms level, which is called the crest factor, is rarely above 4 for steady state conditions.
In summary then setting the overall level (the gain) determines the maximum signal input level and the dynamic range specifies the amplitude range of the signals we measure.
