Of interest to synth designers will be that Audio IC specialist Sound Semiconductor has announced a significant update to the data sheet for its SSI2164 Fatkeys Quad Voltage Controlled Amplifier.
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.
Dan Parks, President of Sound Semiconductor, told us, "We wouldn’t normally announce a data sheet update. 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.”
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.
