CMI 9738 Integrated Multi-channel AC97

CMI9738 4CH Preliminary Technical Brief

Universality
CMI9738 is a 4CH AC97 CODEC, applicable for leading MB chipsets of Intel, VIA, Ali, and SISCMI9738 is ideal for PC99-compliant desktops, notebooks, and home entertainment PCs where high-quality audio is a must.

More Audio Option


Last but not least, CMI9738 provides Sensaura 3D audio option. In that regard, the audio quality of CMI9738 is fabulous beyond general expectation.

Features
Intel AC97(Rev. 2.2) compatible. High S/N ratio meets PC 99 requirements. 4CH DAC, applicable for leading motherboard chipsets. Full-duplex CODEC. Built-in earphone buffer. Line-in phonejack share with rear out. Low-cost 0.1uf capacitors for decoupling. 48 LQFP package(pin to pin compatible with 2-channel CODEC) and 24-lead TSSOP package. D r i v e r s s u p p o r t E A X , E c h o e ff e c t s , WDM version, etc. Microsoft WHQL certified SensauraHRTF 3D audio enhancement (optional).

4CH Playback
The specially-designed 4CH hardware architecture of CMI9738 allows all types of south bridge to playback 4CH audio, thus helping commonplace south bridge get rid of the limitation of 2CH audio playback capability.

Cost-effectiveness
As to the cost concern, CMI9738 integrates the earphone buffer, analog CD differential interface, and analog switch for rear channel audio to Line-in. Simply by using 0.1uf decoupling capacitor, CMI9738 meets PC99 frequency response requirements. Alongside offering standard LQFP 48pin packaging option, CMI9738 also offers SOP 24pin packaging, thus helps further reduce the hardware cost.
