The AD1940/AD1941 are a complete 28-bit, single-chip, multi-channel audio SigmaDSP™ for equalization, multiband dynamic processing, delay compensation, speaker compensation, and image enhancement. These algorithms can be used to compen-sate for the real world limitations of speakers, amplifiers, and listening environments, resulting in a dramatic improvement of perceived audio quality.
The signal processing used in the AD1940/AD1941 is comparable to that found in high end studio equipment. Most of the processing is done in full, 56-bit double-precision mode, resulting in very good, low level signal performance and the absence of limit cycles or idle tones. The dynamics processor uses a sophisticated, multiple-breakpoint algorithm often found in high end broadcast compressors.
The AD1940/AD1941 are a fully programmable DSP. Easy to use software allows the user to graphically configure a custom signal processing flow using blocks such as biquad filters, dynamics processors, and surround sound processors. An extensive control port allows click-free parameter updates, along with readback capability from any point in the algorithm flow.
The AD1940/AD1941’s digital input and output ports allow a glueless connection to ADCs and DACs by multiple, 2-channel serial data streams or TDM data streams. When in TDM mode, the AD1940/AD1941 can input 8 or 16 channels of serial data, and can output 8 or 16 channels of serial data. The input and output port configurations can be individually set. The AD1940 is controlled by a 4-wire SPI® port; the AD1941 is controlled by a 2-wire I2C® bus. Other than the control interface, the functions of the two parts are identical.

Evaluation Kits (2)
Full-Featured AD1940 SigmaDSP evaluation board with AD1939 and AD1974 Codecs. It provides buffered analog inputs and ouptuts as well as S/PDIF and digital I2S/TDM connectors. 6 V power supply and USBi are included in the package.
Small AD1940 SigmaDSP evaluation board with AD1938 Codec and buffered analog inputs and outputs. 6 V power supply and USBi are included in the package. This is the recommended evaluation board for the AD1940. The EVAL-AD1940AZ can be used if this board lacks some necessary functionality or interface.
Features & Benefits
The Analog Devices USBi “USB Interface” (EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ) board is the interface between your PC's USB port and SigmaDSP hardware's data input pins. This interface can be used with any evaluation board which includes an External SPI/I²C header (Aardvark Header). The EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ board is capable of both SPI and I²C communication (which is user selectable) and can supply IOVDD of either 3.3V or 1.8V.The USBi interface is powered from the computer's USB port.
To Install the USBi Board:
- Connect the USB cable to the USBi Board a spare USB port on your PC.
- The Windows “Found New Hardware Wizard” will launch.
- Choose “Install from a list or a specific location” and click “Next”.
- Select “Search for the best driver in these locations” and Check the box for “Include this location in the search.”
- Press the “Browse” button and locate the appropriate driver file in the SigmaStudio application folder (default folder is C:\Program Files\Analog Devices Inc\Sigma Studio\USB drivers): Select the CyUSB.inf file.
- Click “Continue Anyway” if you're prompted with “This software has not passed Windows Logo testing.”
Using USBi in SigmaStudio:
To communication between SigmaStudio and the USBi board, a communication channel block must be added to the Schematic design. To locate the block, select the Hardware Configuration Tab, in the ToolBox or Tree ToolBox window choose the “Communication Channels” category, and select the USBi block.
This block provides connections for multiple processors (ICs / DSPs), allowing you to use multiple processors in a single design. This block allows you to explicitly specify both the communication protocol (SPI or I²C) and the part's address, I²C address or SPI catch line. The DSP hardware's address must match the block's selected address for communication to function properly. See the parts data sheet for more information about addressing (e.g. ADR_SEL, ADDR0, or ADDR1 pins). The default USBi protocol is I²C, to enable SPI, you must first select an SPI address in the block's drop down menu and then perform three write operations (e.g. press the write button the Register Read/Write Window 3 times). The USBi hardware has LEDs which indicate the current mode, I²C or SPI.
