amplification factor
  • The increase in output versus input of an electrical quantity, such as current, voltage, power, or signal strength. This is expressed as a ratio, a percentage, or in decibels.
  • In an electron tube, the factor by which the plate voltage increases in proportion to an increase in the grid voltage, where all other voltages and the plate current are held constant. Also known as mu factor, or μ factor.
