Embedded Systems Conference, April 2010 – The N681622 subscriber line control circuit (SLCC) integrates all the AFE transistors needed for a single-channel FXS into one package. By integrating discrete AFE components, the chip reduces total component count by as much as 30% and is also said to reduce power consumption in all states including a 20+% improvement in the on-hook state. The N681622 is available in a QFN-20 package with prices beginning at $0.35 each 10,000. NUVOTON TECHNOLOGY CORP., San Jose, CA. (408) 943-6666.
