    Please help in a project which can give constant level of volume at its output whether the input volume level is increased/decreased (within certain limits) and microphone should act as input device.
    The out put volume level should be automatical maintained at fixed pre-determined level without any manual adjustment required.

    P.S.- Please start from very basic and speacial consideration towards power consumption

    The words, "automatic level control" or "automatic gain control" are good ways to start. I played with some of those chips 30 years ago when I worked with a band. (They aren't very good for musicians.) Let's see...NE570 or SA571 compandor. There's a cute word. compressor-expander = compandor
    I don't think Signetics makes those any more.
    H*** I'm so old I don't even know if Signetics exists any more!

    Signetics was acquired by Phillips Semiconductors (now NXP) in 1975; the brand continued for several years, later becoming fully integrated. In 1995, NXP spun off the Korean assembly and test operation, who continues to use the name "Signetics"
