Very High Performance 24-bit 4-channel Audio DAC


Tokyo Japan, May 09, 2013-Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation (AKM) today launched the AK4413, a premium high performance 4-channel 24-bit DAC that features 120dB dynamic range and -104dB THD+N. It is the newest member of the Audio 4 proTM family, achieving high quality-sound audio playback with an innovative design technique that utilizes a symmetrical layout for the left and right channels, preserving signal integrity.


Four digital filters are integrated into the AK4413: a short delay sharp roll-off filter and a short delay slow roll-off filter for minimum delay, and a sharp roll-off and a slow roll filter that have no phase difference. With the short delay slow roll-off option, group delay is just 5.5/fs (for any fs), ideal for live sound applications.


The AK4413 delivers high performance with a very short group delay, making it ideal for pro audio applications, including live sound. A performance boosting mode is available, where the AK4413 is configured as a stereo device, which increases dynamic range to 123dB. The device features fully differential outputs, digital attenuator, de-emphasis filter, soft mute circuit and zero detection. The sampling rate ranges from 30kHz to 216kHz, and the typical operating voltage is 5.0V for the analog block and 3.3V for the digital block.


Evaluation boards and samples are available now.
