A breakthrough in digital audio systems, Sound Terminal™ digital audio ICs enable space-constrained audio applications, such as flat-screen TVs and MP3 docking stations, to deliver high-quality, room-filling sound. Using techniques such as Full Flexible Amplification (FFX), and integrating advanced DSP processing features such as multi-band DRC, this family enables a fully digital stream from sound source to loudspeaker.
In application, this produces improved audio performance, reduced cost, and smaller size, making it possible for leading home-entertainment equipment manufacturers to deliver best-in-class audio experiences for consumers.
Key benefits are:
- Analog and digital interfaces, eliminating the need for an external mux or analog-to-digital converter
- Dynamic range compressor for sound enhancement and speaker protection
- Space-saving packages such as QFN and BGA
- Fully-integrated graphical development environment (Audio Processor Workbench) for easy device configuration
STA369BWS: 2.1-channel 40-W high-efficiency
The STA369BWS is an integrated solution of digital audio processing, digital amplifier controls and power output stage to create a high-power single-chip FFX digital amplifier with high-quality and high-efficiency. Three channels of FFX processing are provided. The FFX processor implements the ternary, binary and binary differential processing capabilities of the full FFX processor.
The STA369BWS is part of the Sound Terminal™ family that provides full digital audio streaming to the speakers and offers cost effectiveness, low power dissipation and sound enrichment.
