By scaling with Reynolds number based on channel depth, several of these elements have been connected in series to form a three-stage, open-loop gain block with a pressure gain greater than 1000, a dynamic range of over 400, and a bandwidth greater than 100 Hz. The output of the amplifier itself and of the gain block has a flat saturation characteristics. Author
