Networksound I2S to AES Converter Chip For OEM Customers
NetworkSound has released a single chip (FPGA based) I2S to AES converter for OEM customers.
The new I2S to AES/EBU single chip is said to eliminate the need for multiple external AES/EBU transmitters and receivers. All the I2S to AES and vice versa conversion is done inside the chip, according to NS. This enables OEM customers to design a single chip that can support 4,8,16 and 32 AES/EBU channels to I2S in their end products. The key advantages of NetworkSound's solution are scalability, small foot print, low power consumption and cost effectiveness compared to multiple chip AES/EBU solution, according to the company.
- 1-32 I2S in to AES/EBU out
- 1-32 AES/EBU in to I2S out
- Clocks (In and out) for I2S interface
- External Word Clock (WC)
- I2S WC (LRCK)
- Able to select WC (I2S or EXT) for clock synchronization
- Low power and small footprint
- Pin for user bit in/out
- Pin for validity bit in/out
- Pin for status bit in/out
- Signal indicates Z,X and Y frame start
- Entire chip operates on single clock (MCLK)
The design is supposed to allow customers to program the U,V and S bits on each AES/EBU frame. Design support and schematic to design in the chip will be provided to OEM customers.
