Technical Overview of the AS3340

  • Waveform Generation: The AS3340 can simultaneously produce multiple waveforms, including sawtooth, triangle, and pulse (square) waves. This versatility is essential for creating a wide range of sounds.
  • Frequency Stability: The AS3340 offers excellent frequency stability over a wide range of temperatures and supply voltages, making it reliable for professional audio applications where tuning precision is critical.
  • Wide Frequency Range: The VCO operates over a wide frequency range, from sub-audio (LFO) rates up to high audio frequencies, typically from 0.1 Hz to over 20 kHz.
  • Linear and Exponential Control: The AS3340 provides both linear and exponential frequency control inputs, enabling precise pitch control and modulation.
  • Pulse Width Modulation (PWM): The pulse waveform output includes pulse width modulation, allowing the width of the pulse to be modulated by an external control voltage. This feature is crucial for creating dynamic and evolving timbres.
  • Low Power Consumption: The AS3340 is designed with low power consumption in mind, making it suitable for both modular and compact synthesizer designs.
