Integrated Circuit - Experimental Noize FXCore, DSP, Multi-Effect / Reverb
FXCore from Experimental Noize is a DSP designed for creating audio effects in pro-audio devices. FXCore can operate as a standalone device when paired with appropriate CODECs where it generates all necessary clocks or as part of a more complex system where it will lock to the word clock and bit clock provided by another part of the system.
FXCore can store up to 16 programs and their associated register preset values in its internal FLASH memory so no external program storage is required.

Integrated Circuit - DAB2140, Multi-Mode VCF, Sound Semiconductor
The Sound Semiconductor DAB2140 is a pre-soldered DIP converter for the SSI2140. This board features the SSI2140 and two decoupling caps for the V+ and V- inputs. The pinout is labelled on the board and matches the SSOP pinout. This adapter features a 20 pin DIP base with a .600 in. width. The pins are standard male headers so 2.54mm female headers are recommended for socketing the board. For the SSOP version, please see P-Q-SSI2140. A refresh of a classic design, the FatKeys™ SSI2140 preserves mojo of the beloved SSM2040 and adds temperature compensation of gm cells and the exponential control port. A "Q VCA" is provided to allow easy resonance control as well as various options for Q compensation.
