__Log Amplifier Voltage Formula:__

Log amplifier voltage is a key concept in electronics, especially in signal processing and measurement applications.

A log amplifier produces an output voltage proportional to the logarithm of its input voltage.

This is particularly useful in applications requiring a wide dynamic range of signal processing, such as audio signal processing, RF signal processing, and instrumentation.

Output voltage, V_{o(V)} in volts is calculated by the product of gain of the amplifier, K and ln of ratio of input voltage, V_{i(V)} in volts and reference voltage, V_{ref(V)} in volts.

Output voltage, V_{o(V)} = K * ln (V_{i(V)} / V_{ref(V)})

V_{o(V)} = output voltage in volts, V.

K = gain of the amplifier.

V_{i(V)} = input voltage in volts, V.

V_{ref(V)} = reference voltage in volts, V.

__Log Amplifier Voltage Calculation:__

- Calculate the output voltage of a log amplifier with an input voltage of 2 volts, a reference voltage of 1 volt, and a constant K of 2.

Given: K = 2, V_{i(V)} = 2V, V_{ref(V)} = 1V.

Output voltage, V_{o(V)} = K * ln (V_{i(V)} / V_{ref(V)})

V_{o(V)} = 2 * ln(2 / 1)

V_{o(V)} = 2 * ln(2)

V_{o(V)} = 2 * 0.693

V_{o(V)} = 1.386V.

- Suppose a log amplifier has an input voltage of 5 volts, a reference voltage of 2 volts, and the output voltage is 2.748V. Calculate the gain of the amplifier.

Given: V_{o(V)} = 2.748V, V_{i(V)} = 5V, V_{ref(V)} = 2V.

Output voltage, V_{o(V)} = K * ln (V_{i(V)} / V_{ref(V)})

K = V_{o(V)} / ln (V_{i(V)} / V_{ref(V)})

K = 2.748 / ln(5/2)

K = 2.748 / ln(2.5)

K = 2.748 / 0.916

K = 3.
