ESS Technology Introduces the SABRE9018Q2C at CES 2015
Jan 7 15
ESS Technology announced the SABRE9018Q2C, a 32-Bit Stereo DAC with Headphone Amplifier and ultra-low THD output switch in a compact, 5 mm x 5 mm package for mobile applications. The SABRE9018Q2C System-On-a Chip (SOC) delivers an unprecedented performance level of 121 dB SNR, -115 dB THD+N, at up to 49 mW into 32O headphones making it ideal for portable products such as mobile phones, tablets, and digital music players. Using an internal charge pump, the SABRE9018Q2C SOC operates from a single +3.3 V supply to produce ground-referenced headphone outputs, eliminating pops and clicks as well as the need for large DC blocking capacitors. The ultra-low THD output switch connects headphones directly to the headphone amplifier or to auxiliary inputs for either voice communications or an alternate music source. The on-board DAC use ESS’s 32-Bit HyperStream architecture that handles up to 32-Bit 384 kHz PCM data via SLIMBus, I2S, or DSD-11.2 MHz data. The SABRE9018Q2C SOC is sampling now in a compact 40-QFN, 5 mm x 5 mm, package.
