San Jose, CA (February 5, 2007)–AKM Semiconductor has introduced its AK5386, a stereo, 216 kHz, audio A/D converter for professional audio equipment, DVD recorders, AV receivers and sound-card applications. This latest addition to AKM’s Audio4pro family reportedly meets the requirements of both professional and consumer markets.
The AK5386 features single-ended inputs and is designed for a wide range of applications ranging from consumer recording gear to high-end sound cards. Capable of sampling rates up to 216 kHz, it provides the built-in, variable-pitch functionality required for commercial equipment. The AK5386 has a dynamic range of 110 dB. THD+N is specified at 96 dB, and the device can operate in master or slave mode.
The AK5386 uses AKM’s proprietary, dual-bit, delta-sigma technology, which maintains a balance between the operating speed of the internal delta-sigma modulator and the external sampling rate. The resulting noise floor has a flat characteristic up to 40 kHz, allowing high-definition music recordings free from background noise. The AK5386 is available in a 16-pin TSSOP package.
