Sound Semiconductor — a recently-formed maker of audio chips — have announced a significant update to the data sheet for their SSI2164 Fatkeys Quad Voltage Controlled Amplifier. The SSI2164 is a direct replacement for the Analog Devices SSM2164.
The SSI2164 Quad VCA, introduced earlier this year, now has a comprehensive data sheet to go with it. The sixteen-page data sheet includes a wealth of information spanning from general use to real-world applications, and includes a description of circuit operation. Content is arranged to satisfy a range of technical abilities from DIY enthusiast to seasoned circuit designer.
Special applications include zero to 5V linear and exponential control, voltage controlled filters, and a novel temperature compensated exponential voltage to current converter by synth design icon Dave Rossum.
"We wouldn’t normally announce a data sheet update,” stated Dan Parks, President of Sound Semiconductor. "But this one is significant and in keeping with our goal of providing best-in-class data sheets to support a wide range of users.”
The data sheet is available now and can be download from www.soundsemiconductor.com. Sound Semiconductor is composed of musicians and technologists with the goal of developing affordable, high-performance integrated circuits for the electronic music and professional audio markets.
