Compression circuits are being used increasingly in hearing aids to reduce the dynamic range of signals. Their performance is usually characterized by: (1) the threshold sound level above which the compression starts to operate; (2) the compression ratio, which is the change in input level (in dB) required to achieve a 1 dB change in output level; and (3) the attack and release times over which the signal is integrated to determine the necessary gain change. In many practical situations, the… CONTINUE READING
