The A-132 is a simple module housing two identical low-cost VCA units with linear characteristic. The main purpose is controlling the intensity of control voltages but audio can be controlled if necessary.
The VCAs show a linear characteristic for which reason they are predestined for modulating the amplitude of control voltages like envelopes or LFOs. Non-critic, loud signals like VCO outputs can be controleld as well but the linear characteristic doesn't provide a good "punch" when modulated by a percusive signal like ADSRs.
Each VCA section has two non-attenuated CV inputs which are summed and then determine the VCAs final level.

WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
