Now if someone... anyone... can please find the datasheet on the Toshiba TA7125P?

 :icon_evil:

This may or may not be close:
http://www.alldatasheet.net/datasheet-pdf/pdf/161498/TOSHIBA/TA7120P.html

Negative. I've seen that datasheet. I've repeatedly sent requests for information to Toshiba Canada, USA, and even Japan, without ever getting a response. Just sent another one. :icon_evil:

This should keep you guys reading for a while:

Note: This big ol' pile of electronics books includes the Radiotron Designer's Handbook, 3rd and 4th editions.

a public domain copyright free books and articles sticky thread would be awesome.

*edit* or maybe a sub forum? to organise tube, transistor, op amp, digital etc...

3) The younguns here should go to that site, called up an issue from the early 80's, and flip through the pages at the back of the issue to get a sense of the prices and availability of things at that time.

it's fascinating comparing the style and wording of the snake oil advertisements from the 1919 electrical experimenter magazines and the 1980's radio electronics ones... progress?

The TA7125P was a vca in a 7-pin SIP.  You've probably already seen this application, but I'll include it here for reference:

Yeah, Jack, that`s lifted from the Japanese Guitar Synth schematic. I`m intimate with it because I had it on the bread board about a month or so ago. The thing that throws me though, apart from the fact that it`s labeled as a VCA on the schematic, is that the ONLY info I`ve found on it is the descriptor «Ton Control».  ???
That`s why I was hoping the a datasheet would clear things up. Even the TA7120 (7 pin SIP), which is listed as a VCA, doesn`t match up where the pins are concerned.

Think I`l write a form letter, and start bombarding Toshiba into submission.  :icon_lol:

Metric buttload = ~475-480 liters
Imperial = 126 gallons.

It's based in a unit of measure for wine, so in terms of weight, it's about 544kg, or 1,200lb.

A fair amount of the audio-related stuff is taken from Pete's fine site.

One in particular *can't* be from anywhere else: the original is hand-signed and I know the full history of that scan.

I don't think either Pete or that scan's originator really cares, though Pete does ask "please contact me for permission".
