it's much of an issue with speech or even music when sampling at
44-Ksps, as there is essentially no energy near or above 20-Hz
for those signals. I suppose you can tell the difference by

datasheets. For the PIC16F87X, d/s DS39582B, the cap is shown
in figure 11-2, and TACQ is also on that page. The "C" series
cap value also came out of the d/s.
I notice some of d/s for later parts don't show these values.
Looking at the formula, the TACQ value is obviously based upon
a 1st-order capacitor charging ckt, and is linearly related to
both the value CHOLD and also the impedance of the external
voltage source, RS.
TACQ = Amplifier Settling Time + Hold Capacitor Charging Time
+ Temperature Coefficient
= TAMP + TC + TCOFF
TC = 2 ìs + TC + [(Temperature 25°C)(0.05 ìs/°C)]
= CHOLD (RIC + RSS + RS) In(1/2047)
= - 120 pF (1 kÙ + 7 kÙ + 10 kÙ) In(0.0004885)
= 16.47 ìs
TACQ = 2 ìs + 16.47 ìs + [(50°C 25°C)(0.05 ìs/°C)
= 19.72 ìs
TACQ is dependent directly upon RS. The other R values in the
formula are internal components. If RS is close to zero, then
TACQ will be about 10-usec, so it varies dependent upon the
external ckt. CHOLD is 51-pF in the "C" series, so TACQ will be
less than 1/2 of the value shown here.
- You mean the SPO256 by GI, 28pin DIL ?They also had a 40 pin DIL CTS256A-AL2 text to speech for spo256I have use the SPO256 back in the 80s and also last month but never got around to using the latter, I do have the Tandy data that came with them (somewhere I hope).David - robots42----- Original Message -----From: Rich ChandlerSent: Sunday, December 12, 2010 11:26 PMSubject: Re: [SeattleRobotics] Re: Speech and frequency vs time
A long time ago, when Radio Shack still sold IC's, I got a speech
synthesizer set, but I never did anything with it. Has anyone used them?
