TI introduces highly integrated audio codec to speed soundbar development
Texas Instruments » PCM3070
Value Soundbar Reference Design Kit based on PCM3070 reduces total solution cost by 30 percent compared to discrete implementations
Texas Instruments Incorporated introduced a flexible stereo audio codec with two fully-programmable miniDSP cores to support customized processing solutions for use in soundbars and docking stations. The PCM3070 includes a stereo 24-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC), stereo 24-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and integrated phased-locked loop (PLL) for flexible audio clock generation. The codec enables designers to produce high-quality, low-cost soundbar solutions and, coupled with the Value Soundbar Reference Design Kit, develop their products quickly.
Key features and benefits
Availability and pricing
The PCM3070 is available now in a 5-mm x 5-mm 32-pin QFN package, priced at $2.95 in quantities of 1,000.
Tools and support
The PCM3070 is a core component of TI's Value Soundbar Reference Design Kit.
This highly integrated solution is optimized to deliver 30 percent lower cost than a discrete solution, and helps designers get to market in approximately eight weeks. In addition to the PCM3070, the open-tool reference design board includes TI's DIR9001 digital audio receiver, PCM2705 USB DAC, TPA3110D2 Class-D amplifier, and MSP430F2131 ultra low power microcontroller. The kit includes the board, schematics, gerber files, bill of materials, user manual and software.
