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.

Starting at $1.30 Op-Amp - 4558, Dual high-gain, 8-Pin DIP Dual Operational Amplifier. The 4558 integrated circuit is a dual high-gain operational amplifier internally compensated and constructed on a single silicon chip using an advanced epitaxial process. Combining the features of the NJM741 with the close parameter matching and tracking of a dual device on a monolithic chip results in unique performance characteristics. Excellent channel separation allows the use of the dual device in single NJM741 operational amplifier applications providing density. It is especially well suited for applications in differential-in, differential-out as well as in potentiometric amplifiers and where gain and phase matched channels are mandatory.

With integrated stereo ADC and DACs, the FV-1 can be treated like any other analog component in your product's signal path. The FV-1 can access a total of 16 programs, 8 are built into the internal ROM and the designer may elect to connect a serial EEPROM with 8 additional programs. By using an external EEPROM, the designer can distinguish his product from others by creating a custom program set without the need for a microprocessor in the system. With 3 potentiometer inputs, programs may have real time variable parameters such as decay time in a reverb, rate and depth in a chorus or frequency in a filter. These inputs are available as coefficients to your program and may be used independently of each other. The rich instruction set allows users to program effects of all kinds. With instructions like LOG and EXP, users can easily program audio expansion and compression routines.$17.50 On Backorder Bridge Rectifier - Single-phase, 3A 400V A full wave rectifier with 4 elements in a bridge circuit so that DC voltage is obtained from one pair of junctions when an AC voltage is applied to another pair of junctions. $0.95 Optocoupler - Xvive, Vactrol, VTL5C Series High quality vactrols from Xvive.
