The SSM2164 contains four independent voltage controlled amplifiers (VCAs) in a single package. High performance (100 dB dynamic range, 0.02% THD) is provided at a very low cost-per-VCA, resulting in excellent value for cost sensitive gain control applications. Each VCA offers current input and output for maximum design flexibility, and a ground referenced -33 mV/dB control port.
All channels are closely matched to within 0.07 dB at unity gain, and 0.24 dB at 40 dB of attenuation. A 120 dB gain range is possible.
A single resistor tailors operation between full Class A and AB modes. The pinout allows upgrading of SSM2024 designs with minimal additional circuitry.
The SSM2164 will operate over a wide supply voltage range of ±4 V to ±18 V. Available in 16-pin P-DIP and SOIC packages, the device is guaranteed for operation over the extended industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
