The next-generation STA370BWS SoundTerminal employs the company’s Full Flexible Amplifier (FFXT) technology to deliver high-quality stereo audio at 10W and above. It is also the first audio device to use the company's proprietary BCD8 process technology, which allows integration of analog, logic, and high-voltage functions on a single chip. Allegedly, the device's on-chip power amplifier also delivers better performance over conventional digital amplifiers by suppressing non-audio signals, such as the carrier waveform that governs the amplifier's timing. Price for the STA370BWS is $2.50 each/10,000. STMICROELECTRONICS, Lexington, MA. (888) 787-3550.
