The G page
- The upper case G when used as a prefix
will be the short form of giga.
- Gain is the characteristics of a device which represent the
amplification of a signal as it passes thougth the device. Gain is an
characteristics which have no unit, but gives a relation between two
numbers of the same unit, for instance input and output voltage. A
gain of 10 will then make an input of 1 V to result with 10 V at the
output (assuming that the amplifier does not saturate or clip).
- A diffrent name for an amplifier.
- in analogue synthesizers, a control signal normally being sent to
the envelope generator input. The
activation of the gate signal will occur when a key is held down and
the gate signal becomes inactive when the key is released.
- An prefix representing the ninth power
of 10 (1000000000) of a unit. The prefix is being written as a upper
case G in most shorter notations. It is part of the SIS standard.
- Gillbert Cell
- An Gillbert cell is refering to a certain transistor based
construction solution to achieve a 4-quadrant multiplication. There is
several commercial versions available with and without the arctanh
compensation needed for large scale signals.
