1. A gain-compensated differential amplifier circuit comprising:

  • (a) a transistor differential amplifier, with reasonably matched current gains, operating at a tail current Itail ;

    (b) a transistor current source responsive to a control voltage for generating said tail current as a function of the control voltage;

    (c) control voltage generating means for generating, as the control voltage, a voltage which varies proportionately to absolute temperature; and

    (d) the control voltage generating means including means for functionally relating the control voltage to the intrinsic emitter resistance of the current source.
