Dallas, Texas Texas Instruments introduced a 24-bit, 96-kHz digital audio interface receiver that provides jitter performance as low as 50 ps RMS. The device reduces the number of external components required and enhances sound quality in applications including AV/DVD receivers and amplifiers, automotive audio systems, digital televisions, musical instruments, recording systems and high-performance PC audio interfaces.
The DIR9001 allows the designer to control all functionality through the device's hardware control pins, eliminating the need for an external microcontroller. Additionally, the DIR9001 integrates a high-performance phase-lock loop (PLL) to improve jitter performance and remove the need for an external clock source when the sample frequency calculator is not used. Other benefits include support for any input frequency from 28 up to 108 kHz for stereo digital interfaces including S/PDIF, EIAJ CP-1201, IEC60958 and AES/EBU, easier integration into existing designs with 5 V-tolerant logic and selectable pulse-code-modulation (PCM) output formats, and temperature range of -40°C to 85°C for automotive applications.
