The AD1941 is a complete 28-bit, single-chip, multichannel
audio DSP for equalization, multiband dynamics processing,
delay compensation, speaker compensation, and image
enhancement. These algorithms can be used to compensate 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 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 sophisti-
cated, multiple-breakpoint algorithm often found in high end

FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM

The AD1941 is 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, dynamics
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 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
AD1941 can input 8 or 16 channels of serial data, and can
output either 8 or 16 channels of serial data. The input and
output port configurations can be individually set. The AD1941
is controlled on a 2-wire I2C bus.
