The TAS3204 audio processor is adual-core device consisting of apowerful DSP and microcontroller(MCU) along with high perfor-mance audio analog-to-digital con- verters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs). TheTAS3204 is a fully integrated solu-tion offering analog input, digitalprocessing and analog outputfunctionality. Operating at 135MHz, the DSP core is capable of five simultaneous operations percycle. The MCU is an industrystandard 8051 core. It optimizesthe TAS3204’s system performanceby handling the I
C interface andcontrolling the audio algorithms.The DSP’s 48-bit data pathenables superior audio processing,and its unique single-cycle 76-bit(48 × 28) multiply-accumulateoperation accelerates the process-ing of most audio algorithms. TheTAS3204 incorporates all thefunctionality required to performdemanding audio applications.Three stereo differential inputchannels MUXed to two stereo ADCs provide the capability toprocess audio from up to threeindependent sources. Alsoincluded are two stereo differen-tial DAC channels, making theTAS3204 ideal for bi-amped or 2.1speaker solutions.
Enhanced Audio Faster
High quality audio systems withlower bill-of-material costs can beimplemented with the TAS3204because of its integrated analogdata converters and full suite of quality-enhancing features suchas equalization, tone and volumecontrol, loudness and dynamicrange compression eliminates theneed for discrete devices to sup-port these capabilities.Developers have full control of audio processing and can imple-ment a range of algorithms suchas matrix decoding, soundenhancement and surroundsound. Because the device is sup-ported by leading third-party IPdevelopers such as BBE, QSound,SRS and others, TAS3204 designswill always have timely access tothe latest innovations in audiotechnology.The powerful processing sup-ported by the TAS3204’s dual-corearchitecture gives developers theability to easily add post-processing and proprietary audioalgorithms for differentiatedfeatures.
