Type of optical disc. The DVD represents the second generation of compact-disc (CD) technology. (Digital Versatile Disc digital versatile disc or digital video disc (DVD), a small plastic disc used for the storage of digital data. The successor media to the compact disc (CD), a DVD can have as much as 26 times the storage capacity of a CD. ).
The PCM1604 contains six 24-bit, 192kHz DACs combined together on a single monolithic integrated circuit The common form of chip design, in which the base material (substrate) contains the pathways as well as the active elements that take part in its operation. . The device is optimized for DVD players, AV receivers, HDTV receivers, car audio systems, multi-channel home theater systems, surround-sound processors, and digital mixing consoles.
"The exceptional price/performance of the PCM1604 is ideal for next generation multi-channel systems which utilize the emerging 192kHz DVD audio standard," said Mike Centorino, audio product marketing manager at Burr-Brown.
The PCM1604 utilizes Burr-Brown's proprietary "Enhanced Multi-Level Delta-Sigma" modulator technology which improves audio dynamic performance and reduces jitter sensitivity in actual applications.
This highly integrated device features 105dB dynamic range and -95dB THD+N on each of its six channels. The internal digital filter operates at 8x oversampling (96kHz sampling rate) or 4x oversampling (192kHz sampling rate), with two selectable roll-off performances: sharp roll-off or slow roll-off. The digital filter offers -82dB stopband A stopband is a band of frequencies, between specified limits, in which a circuit, such as a filter or telephone circuit, does not let signals through. Frequencies between the lower and upper limits are not transmitted. attenuation and +/-0.002dB passband pass·band

Functions of the PCM1604 include digital attenuation, mute, and zero flag for each channel. The device accepts industry-standard audio data formats (16/18/20/24-bit audio data) and can be used with 128, 192, 256, 384, 512, or 768fs system clocks. The PCM1604 processes up to 24 bits internally and has single-ended analog outputs, thus reducing the amount of external components needed. It operates on dual +3.3V and +5V power supplies.
The PCM1604 is priced from $6.95 in 1,000 piece quantities and is packaged in an LQFP-48. Delivery is from stock.
