the addition of a new,
exclusive product —
SuperCarrier — to
its line of speech
is a full-featured carrier board
for the Magnevation SpeakJet single chip speech
The SpeakJet generates 72 speech allophones, 43
sound effects, and 12 DTMF Touch Tones.
Through the selection of these sounds and by
controlling the pitch, rate, bend, and volume parameters,
users have the ability to produce unlimited phrases and
sound effects. The SuperCarrier can be connected directly
to a PC or it can be embedded in a stand-alone project,
such as a talking robot. It allows full access to all the
The SuperCarrier is available as a double-sided PCB or
in kit form.

current (800 mA) capable CMOS based LDO. The CMOS
process permits ultra-low current consumption of 80 µA
during operation and 0.1 µA during shutdown, assuring
An ON/OFF circuit further ensures battery longevity
for increased energy management. Optimized for noise
sensitive applications, this device has a 70 dB ripple
rejection ratio that is achieved without the need of an
external bypass capacitor.
The SOT-89-5 and six-pin HSON(A) compact
package designs provide for high density mounting,
while superior noise and low quiescent current
specifications make the S-1170 the perfect power
supply option for a wide array of electronic equipment
including PDAs, notebook PCs, hand-held games, home
security equipment, digital cameras, and portable audio
Other key specifications that add to the high
performance and reliability of this design include an
output voltage range of 1.5 V to 5.0 V in 0.1 V increments
and an LDO voltage of 120 mV, typical. A built-in thermal
shutdown circuit prevents potential damage caused by
heat, while a built-in overcurrent protector prevents the
load current from exceeding the current capacitance of the
