Nope, but it’s a lovely idea! Maybe one of those modern re-manufacturers could take the idea up. V3205 with built-in filters would be a popular idea...

Now, this one Reticon did do. The SAD1024A is organised as a dual 512 stage device, and one of the suggestions in the datasheet is that it can be used as you describe.
