      The M62429 is a dual-channel electronic volume controller that accepts data from a 2-wire serial data interface. It is mainly used as an alternate part of the standard volume control based on a mechanical potentiometer. The additional built-in reference circuit leads to a simple and inexpensive low-cost application where fewer external components are required.

      M62429 Volume Controller Overview

      M62429 is a stereo based digital volume control that can be used with any microcontroller unit. It communicates with the host controller via 2-wire serial bus line. The major advantage of this controller is the easy integration in the digital system where audio-related analog control is required. However, this controller supports voltage from 4.5V to 5.5V where 5V is the nominal rated working voltage.

      It requires very minimalistic component counts while integrating into a system, just two electrolytic capacitors. As it is an audio-related product, THD or Total Harmonic Distortion is required to be less. It offers 0.01%THD in 0.5Vrms.

      M62429 is equipped with an internal reference circuit thus additional voltage reference or biasing circuits are not required.
