GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The SSM2160 and SSM2161 allow digital control of volume of
six and four audio channels, respectively, with a master level
control and individual channel controls. Low distortion VCAs
(Voltage Controlled Amplifiers) are used in the signal path. By
using controlled rate-of-change drive to the VCAs, the “click-
ing” associated with switched resistive networks is eliminated in
the Master control. Each channel is controlled by a dedicated
5-bit DAC providing 32 levels of gain. A master 7-bit DAC
feeds every control port giving 128 levels of attenuation. Step
sizes are nominally 1 dB and can be changed by external
resistors. Channel balance is maintained over the entire master
control range. Upon power-up, all outputs are automatically
muted. A three- or four-wire serial data bus enables interfacing
with most popular microcontrollers. Windows* software and an
evaluation board for controlling the SSM2160 are available.
The SSM2160 can be operated from single supplies of +10 V to
+20 V or dual supplies from 5 V to 10 V. The SSM2161 can
be operated from single supplies of +8.5 V to +20 V (for
automotive applications) or dual supplies from 4.25 V to
10 V. An on-chip reference provides the correct analog
common voltage for single supply applications. Both models
come in P-DIP and SO packages. See the Ordering Guide for
more details.
