In combination with a Zenon controller, the SAC 3590 audio chip enables system manufacturers to realize cost-effective audio players, which are compliant to the latest security requirements such as SD card and MMC.

The Zenon controller regulates audio decoding (AAC, MP3, WMA) and provides the interfaces for the keyboard, the LCDs, the Flash memories and the USB. ADC and DAC, headset amplifier and dc/dc converter for power-management are integrated on the SAC.

The SAC chip is quoted at about $4 in high volume quantities, while the Zenon controller is priced below $10.

The SAC device can also be replaced by the pin-compatible MAS 3587 chip, suiting audio recorders that can convert and record music from different sources into digital formats.

The MAS 3587 features integrated ADC and DAC, headset amplifier, dc/dc converter and all audio decoding and encoding functions, allowing the realization of a fully functional recorder below $18, the company says.
