SAM5808B

Typical Application

Digital Pianos, Keyboard instruments & E-Drum Sound modules


Overview

Medium range Keyboard Synthesizer

The SAM5808B is a member of the SAM5000 family of sound synthesis and audio processing ICs that uses the DSP array technology. The SAM5808B includes eight 24-bit DSPs, a general-purpose 16-bit CPU, a 24-bit Audio Router and a multi-channel audio DMA. The implementation of a sophisticated sample buffering system allows 189-polyphony sound synthesis with large sound banks stored in cost saving memories, typically 1GByte in NOR Flash and up to 8GBytes in NAND Flash. Delivered in a 176-pin QFP package, the SAM5808B is mainly intended for digital piano, keyboard and electronic drum applications with adequate interfaces.
