The MAX4744/MAX4744H/MAX4745/MAX4745H/MAX4746H dual SPDT (single-pole/double-throw) audio
switches feature negative signal capability that allows
signals as low as VCC - 5.5V to pass through without
distortion. These analog switches have a low on-resistance
and low supply current, and operate from a single
+1.8V to +5.5V supply.
The MAX4744/MAX4744H have internal shunt resistors
that automatically discharge the capacitance at the normally
open (NO) and normally closed (NC) terminals
when they are not connected. The MAX4746H features
internal shunt resistors on NC_ terminals. This reduces
click-and-pop sounds that occur when switching audio
signals between precharged points. A break-before-make
feature further reduces popping. The MAX4744/MAX4745 control the switches with two control bits CB1 and CB2. The MAX4744H/MAX4745H/MAX4746H have
one control bit to switch both switches and an enable
input active-low EN to put the switches in a high-impedance mode.
The MAX4744H/MAX4745H/MAX4746H also have an
internal protection network against voltages applied to
COM_ when VCC = 0V.
These devices are available in a space-saving 10-pin
µDFN (2mm x 2mm) package and operate over the
-40°C to +85°C extended temperature range.
