What is a VGA




The TLA VGA stands for variable gain amplifier. Dr. Barrie Gilbert, a EEEE fellow, ADI fellow and world reknowned expert invented the VGA with AD600 and AD602 products. The differentiating characteristic of a VGA is the ability of the user to manipulate gain electronically, without changing any circuit values.
