Integrated Circuit - AS3340A, VCO, Alfa, 16-Pin Dip
The AS3340A is Alfa’s version of the CEM3340 IC. The AS3340A is a completely self-contained, precision voltage controlled oscillator, featuring both exponential and linear control scales and up to four buffered output waveforms: triangle, sawtooth, square, and pulse with voltage controllable pulse width. Full temperature compensation makes these VCOs extremely stable, and eliminates the need for a temperature compensation resistor. The highly accurate exponential and linear control inputs are virtual ground summing nodes, allowing multiple control voltages to be mixed within the device itself.
Also included is provision for hard and soft synchronization of the frequency, and an output for easy adjustment of high frequency tracking. Special care in the design ensures oscillation start-up under any power-on sequence and supply conditions.
An on-chip 7.4 volt Zener diode allows the device to operate off ±15 volt supplies, as well as +12, -5 volt supplies.
Integrated Circuit - SSI2131, VCO, Sound Semiconductor
The FatKeys™ SSI2131 Voltage Controlled Oscillator provides the core VCO function with buffered triangle, sawtooth, and variable-width pulse waveform outputs over a ten-octave range. The device offers unparalleled temperature stability, exponentiality, waveform integrity, and ease of use while requiring an absolute minimum of external components. The SSI2131 is a new-generation voltage controlled oscillator for high-performance electronic musical instruments and other systems requiring accurate audio-band waveform generation. The device offers unprecedented levels of temperature stability, exponentiality, waveform integrity, and ease of use.
Integrated Circuit - DAB2130, VCO, Sound Semiconductor
The Sound Semiconductor DAB2130 is a pre-soldered DIP converter for the SSI2130. This board features the SSI2130 and two decoupling caps for the V+ and V- inputs. The pinout is labelled on the board and matches the QFN pinout. This adapter features a 32 pin DIP base with a .600 in. width. The pins are standard male headers so 2.54mm female headers are recommended for socketing the board. For the standard QFN version, please see P-Q-SSI2130. The first new VCO IC in decades, and worth the wait! The FatKeys™ SSI2130 Voltage Controlled Oscillator provides beautiful triangle, sawtooth, pulse, and square waveforms with unprecedented temperature stability; and adds an on-chip mixer, low distortion sine wave generator, through-zero FM/PM capability and more in an ultra-compact PCB footprint. The SSI2130 is a new-generation voltage controlled oscillator subsystem for high-performance electronic musical instruments.
Evaluation Board - EVB2130-P, SSI2130 VCO, Sound Semiconductor, Fully Populated
The SSI2130 offers unprecedented performance and features, but its ultra-compact QFN package can present prototyping challenges. The EVB2130 eases evaluation by providing a PCB that allows comprehensive exploration of capabilities. The EVB2130-P is fully populated and ready for the bench. With the exception of the SSI2130, all components are through-hole for easy construction and experimentation. A on-board +5V regulator and 2.5V reference simplify external power connections, and pots are provided for mixer control, PWM, and VCO setup. Switches ease selection of saw ramp direction plus Through-Zero and Pulse Modulation. Features
