16-Channel DAC Boosts Audio, Cuts Power

Nov. 29, 2011
The 24-bit ADAU1966 16-channel audio D/A converter specs a 118-dB SNR at 32- to 192-kHz sampling rates at a power consumption of less than 300 mW for 16-channel operation.

The 24-bit ADAU1966 16-channel audio D/A converter specs a 118-dB SNR at 32- to 192-kHz sampling rates at a power consumption of less than 300 mW for 16-channel operation. The company achieves this by running the digital portion of the ADAU1966 at a lower voltage from an integrated linear regulator. Alternatively, users can bypass regulator, opting for a separate 2.5V to 3.3V supply. Other features include an operating temperature from -40°C to +105°C and an SPI/I2C port.
