Product Details

ADZS-AD2428MINI is a low-cost, mini break-out board which can interface with EV-SOMCRR-EZKIT (via a 100-pin connector) or any custom board (via a 32 pin 0.1" header). It supports main and subordinate node capability as well as bus and local power configurations.

An Automotive Audio Bus (A2B®) system consists of a single main node and at least one subordinate node, where the transceiver at the host controller is the main node. The main transceiver generates clock, synchronization, and framing for all subordinate nodes and is programmable over a control bus (I2C) for configuration and readback. An extension of this control bus is embedded in the A2B data stream, which enables the host to directly access subordinate transceiver registers and any I2C-connected peripherals on subordinate nodes.

Transceivers can connect directly to PDM microphones and to numerous peripherals via I2C and a multichannel I2S/TDM interface. Finally, the transceiver also supports an A2B bus powering feature, where the main node supplies voltage and current to the subordinate nodes over the same daisy-chained, twisted pair wire cable as used for the communication link, thus eliminating the need for a power supply on bus-powered subordinate nodes. Due to the numerous configurations that are possible for a given A2B system, there are several evaluation platforms that can be used in combination to verify system operation, as summarized in the table below.
