Audio Power Amplifier - LM386N-1, Low Voltage
LM386 Low Voltage Audio Power Amplifier The LM386 is a mono low voltage amplifier that can be used in a variety of applications. It can drive loads from 4 Ω to 32 Ω. The gain is internally set to 20 but it can be modified from 20 to 200 by placing a resistor and capacitor between pins 1 and 8. As this is an Op Amp it can be used in different configurations to fit in several applications. The internal gain setting resistor allows the LM386 to be used in a very low part count system. In addition a series resistor can be placed between pins 1 and 5 to modify the gain and frequency response for specific applications. These are found in many small audio amplifiers and even tiny pedal sized guitar amplifiers! There are tons of possibilities for this little Op Amp.

Integrated Circuit - Experimental Noize FXCore, DSP, Multi-Effect / Reverb
FXCore from Experimental Noize is a DSP designed for creating audio effects in pro-audio devices. FXCore can operate as a standalone device when paired with appropriate CODECs where it generates all necessary clocks or as part of a more complex system where it will lock to the word clock and bit clock provided by another part of the system.
FXCore can store up to 16 programs and their associated register preset values in its internal FLASH memory so no external program storage is required.
