LTC6910 digitally controlled programmable gain amplifier

A programmable-gain amplifier (PGA) is an electronic amplifier (typically an operational amplifier) whose gain can be controlled by external digital or analog signals.

The gain can be set from less than 1 V/V to over 100 V/V. Examples for the external digital signals can be SPI, I²C while the latest PGAs can also be programmed for offset voltage trimming, as well as active output filters.[1] Popular applications for these products are motor control, signal and sensor conditioning.
