THAT 5263 Block Diagram

DESCRIPTION

The THAT 626x is a family of two-channel “all-in-one” digitally controlled preamplifiers with integrated ADC drivers. Gain is programmable from -8 to +34 dB. The low-power (60 mW) devices can be powered from unipolar (+10 V and +5 V) or bipolar (±5 V) supplies. The 626x family includes three products distinguished primarily by step size:

Part 6261 6263 6266
Step size 1 dB 3 dB 6 dB

All three parts offer excellent noise performance: at maximum gain: the 6261 EIN is -127 dBu; the 6263 and 6266 are -126 dBu. Dynamic range at minimum gain is up to 118.7 dB.

Their outputs interface directly to commonly used 5 V ADC ICs with 2Vrms differential full-scale inputs. Accordingly, these parts serve as a complete solution to connect an audio input to an A/D converter.

To minimize audibility of gain changes with signal, all 626x family members can be programmed to synchronize gain changes with signal zero crossings. To enable seamless external gain changes, a BUSY pin for each channel allows external events to be synchro-nized with zero crossings.

The parts are controlled via a 4-wire SPI interface running at up to 7.5 MHz (+3.3V supply). Multiple devices may be daisy-chained using one chip select.

Four general purpose logic outputs (GPOs) are available to control external circuitry (e.g., pad, phan-tom power). The GPOs may be synchronized with zero-crossings. Each channel may be set to low-power standby mode, and can be muted by about 62 dB.

The 626x comes in a 7X7 mm 48-pin QFN pack-age. They are truly all-in-one mic preamps – from XLR to ADC.

Digitally Controlled Microphone Preamplifier Selector
A side by side comparison of the features and specifications of our digitally controlled microphone preamplifier chip sets.

626x-DEMO Programmable-Gain Preamplifier Demo Board - The 626x-DEMO board (US$250) allows developers to evaluate the performance of the THAT626x IC. The demo board provides a balanced audio input on a Neutrik "combo" connector with 48V phantom power, and a balanced audio output on XLR and ¼" TRS connectors. The supplied graphical user interface (GUI) controls all functions in the 626x chip via USB. A prototyping area is available for adding or modifying circuitry. See the 626x-DEMO Datasheet for more information.

626x Surface Mount Adapter Board - For our integrated circuits which are only available in surface mount packages THAT Corporation offers adapter boards which allow one of these surface-mount ICs to interface to a circuit board via traditional thru-hole mounting. These adapters make it easy for a design engineer to evaluate our surface-mount products on a prototype board without having to employ SMT technology. Adapter boards are available to qualified applicants.

626x Material Data Declaration Sheet
Material Data Declaration Sheets (MDDS) disclose the hazardous materials in our integrated circuits as required by the European RoHS directive.
