The CCA 1000 is a compact low-noise conditioning charge amplifier designed for use with piezoelectric hydrophones and other piezoelectric detectors. The CCA 1000 enables the uses of long cables between hydrophone and amplifier without affecting the hydrophone sensitivity. The input capacitance can be selected to match the hydrophone capacitance for close unity gain or to achieve input gain up to 20dB. The input resistance, control the lower frequency limit -3dB break frequency. The output gain can be selected from 0 to 32dB.
