Integrated Circuit - SSI2164, Quad VCA, Sound Semiconductor
The FatKeys™ SSI2164 is perhaps the most flexible VCA available, with four independent channels for lowest cost-per-VCA. The user-selectable mode control allows Class A, AB, or intermediate biasing, and current inputs and outputs provide great design freedom. Ideal for voltage-controlled filters. The SSI2164 is a versatile VCA building block for high-performance audio applications. Four independent channels provide voltage control of current-mode inputs and outputs for a gain range from +20dB to –100dB, with control provided by a ground-referenced –33mV/dB constant. The SSI2164 will directly retrofit existing SSM/V2164 positions while offering improvements that include significantly lower overall distortion, on-chip protection against asymmetrical power failure, and a substantial increase of input current handling. The device offers considerable flexibility for a wide range of design goals and applications.

The LT1054 also provides regulation, a feature previously not available in switched-capacitor voltage converters. By adding an external resistive divider, a regulated output can be obtained. This output is regulated against changes in both input voltage and output current. The LT1054 can also shut down by grounding the feedback terminal.
