Milford, Mass. – THAT Corporation, a leading provider of high-quality audio ICs, today announced the availability of the THAT5263 – a wide-range digital preamplifier controller IC intended for use with low-noise differential analog audio preamplifiers. The 5263 operates from ±5 to ±17V analog supplies, offers 3dB steps from 0 to 51dB gain, and supports input signals up to +29.6 dBu.

“Paired with one of our world class family of analog preamps, the 5263 offers a compact digitally controlled mic preamp system solution that delivers pro audio performance at a very competitive price,” said Ken Nevard, IC Marketing Manager, THAT Corporation. “The 5263 sets new standards for low power consumption, an increasingly important factor in today’s product designs.”

Key features of the 5263 include:

• Wide Gain Range: 0 dB to 51 dB in 3 dB Steps

• Wide Supply Range: ± 5V to ±17V

• Wide Input and Output Swing: +29.6 dBu

The 5263 controller works ideally with THAT’s family of differential analaog preamps, such as the 1583 and new 1580. But, it also works well with discrete preamp designs, allowing manufacturers to customize their circuit to achieve the optimum sonics and price point for their market.

The 5263 is available immediately from THAT Corporation and its authorized distributors. Pricing pricing starts at $3.52 at 1k pieces. A demonstration board is available to simplify and speed up evaluation.
