The AD1940/AD1941 are a complete 28-bit, single-chip, multi-
channel audio SigmaDSP™ for equalization, multiband dynamic
processing, delay compensation, speaker compensation, and
image enhancement. These algorithms can be used to compen-
sate for the real world limitations of speakers, amplifiers, and
listening environments, resulting in a dramatic improvement of
perceived audio quality.
The signal processing used in the AD1940/AD1941 is
comparable to that found in high end studio equipment. Most
of the processing is done in full, 56-bit double-precision mode,
resulting in very good, low level signal performance and the
absence of limit cycles or idle tones. The dynamics processor
uses a sophisticated, multiple-breakpoint algorithm often found
in high end broadcast compressors.

FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
28 × 28
The AD1940/AD1941 are a fully programmable DSP. Easy to
use software allows the user to graphically configure a custom
signal processing flow using blocks such as biquad filters, dyna-
mics processors, and surround sound processors. An extensive
control port allows click-free parameter updates, along with
readback capability from any point in the algorithm flow.
The AD1940/AD1941’s digital input and output ports allow a
glueless connection to ADCs and DACs by multiple, 2-channel
serial data streams or TDM data streams. When in TDM mode,
the AD1940/AD1941 can input 8 or 16 channels of serial data,
and can output 8 or 16 channels of serial data. The input and
output port configurations can be individually set. The AD1940
is controlled by a 4-wire SPI® port; the AD1941 is controlled by
a 2-wire I2C® bus. Other than the control interface, the
functions of the two parts are identical.
