Fluorescent display tube level meter
driver, 16-point 2 channel, VU scale,
The BA6800AS is a two-channel, 16-point fluorescent display tube driver for VU-scale bar-level meters. It uses a dynam-
ic-drive system and has both AC and DC inputs. The AC input mode has a peak hold circuit. The IC features a power-on
mute, and the output block can directly drive fluorescent display tubes, so few external components are required. The
grid output duty cycle is 1 / 8.
