The AD73422's analog front end (AFE) section features a dual front-end converter for general purpose applications including speech and telephony. The AFE section features two 16-bit A/D conversion channels and two 16-bit D/A conversion channels. Each channel provides 77 dB signal-to-noise ratio over a voiceband signal bandwidth. It also features an input-to-output gain network in both the analog and digital domains. This is featured on both codecs and can be used for impedance matching or scaling when interfacing to Subscriber Line Interface Circuits (SLICs).
