Questions tagged [preamp]
A preamp takes in very weak DC voltages or audio or RF signals and amplifies them enough to be used by a more conventional amplifier. Input may be in microvolts and output maybe 1 volt RMS or peak. They are often specific to amplify DC, LF/audio, RF or microwave bands. No preamp can cover DC to microwave bands and have good parameters at both DC and RF without software offset and gain correction.
