Analogue multiplier/divider is a semiconductor device used in a circuit that takes two analogue signals and combines them into one. The output is the product of both inputs. For it to be a true analogue multiplier, the two inputs must be identical signals. If the two signals differ in voltage, the second will be scaled proportionally according to the level of the first, and this is called voltage controlled amplifier
Analogue multipliers are used in a wide range of electronic circuits and design. Some of the most common applications are;
The key difference between analogue multiplier is the number of quadrants used: either one, two or four. One and two-quadrant multipliers have simpler circuitry and will therefore be the default if four quadrants are not needed.
