SigmaDSP Stereo, Automotive Low Power, 96 kHz, 24-Bit Audio Codec with Integrated PLL

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADAU1461 is a low power, stereo audio codec with integrated digital audio processing that supports stereo 48 kHz record and playback at 35 mW from a 3.3 V analog supply. The stereo audio ADCs and DACs support sample rates from 8 kHz to 96 kHz as well as a digital volume control.

The SigmaDSP® core features 28-bit processing (56-bit double precision). The processor allows system designers to compensate for the real-world limitations of microphones, speakers, amplifiers, and listening environments, resulting in a dramatic improvement in the perceived audio quality through equalization, multiband compression, limiting, and third-party branded algorithms.

The SigmaStudio™ graphical development tool is used to program the ADAU1461. This software includes audio processing blocks such as filters, dynamics processors, mixers, and low level DSP functions for fast development of custom signal flows.

The record path includes an integrated microphone bias circuit and six inputs. The inputs can be mixed and muxed before the ADC, or they can be configured to bypass the ADC. The ADAU1461 includes a stereo digital microphone input.

The ADAU1461 includes five high power output drivers (two differentials and three single-ended), supporting stereo head-phones, an earpiece, or other output transducer. AC-coupled or capless configurations are supported. Individual fine level controls are supported on all analog outputs. The output mixer stage allows for flexible routing of audio.
