Abstract : The patent relates to a fluidic multiplier which comprises a proportional fluidic amplifier operated in the laminar region. The gain of the amplifier is proportional to the power jet pressure, thereby providing an output signal which is the product of the input signal and the supply pressure. A preconditioning and buffering circuit is also disclosed for linearizing and isolating the multiplier from other circuitry.
