aP8921A/10A series high performance Voice OTP is fabricated with Standard CMOS process with
embedded 512K/256K bits EPROM. It can store up to 21/10sec voice message with 4-bit
ADPCM compression at 6KHz sampling rate. 8-bit PCM is also available as user selectable
option. Two trigger modes, simple Key trigger mode and Parallel CPU trigger mode facilitate
different user interface. User selectable triggering and output signal options provide maximum
flexibility to various applications. Built-in resistor controlled oscillator, 8-bit current mode D/A
output and PWM direct speaker driving output minimize the number of external components. PC
controlled programmer and developing software are available.
