The ADAU1373 is a low-power integrated digital audio processor that supports stereo 48 kHz recording and playback. Stereo Audio Codecs (ADCs) and DACs support sample rates from 8 kHz to 48 kHz with digital volume control.
The device offers 8 single-ended, or 4 differential analog inputs with PGA, adjustable gain from -12 dB to +18 dB. And can be configured for microphone or line level signals.
Two digital stereo microphone inputs are supported, and a total of 4 digital microphones can be connected. In addition, three serial digital audio input/output ports are provided, and asynchronous sample rate converters (ASRCs) are provided to support different sample rates, making mobile phone application system design more flexible. The inputs can be mixed before the ADC (or configured to bypass the ADC), or selected. Two stereo DACs are also included, with mixing options for flexible internal signal routing.

Analog outputs include line output, headphone output, speaker output and receiver output. Also included are two single-ended stereo line level outputs that can be configured as two differential outputs. The headphone output is true stereo, eliminating the need for coupling capacitors, and has a high-efficiency Class-G, Class-G, (track switch) architecture. A high-efficiency stereo, filter-free, Class-D switching amplifier provides 1W of stereo speaker power. Differential receiver amplifiers can be used to connect separate receiver speakers. Two PLL blocks that can lock to inputs from 8 kHz to 27 MHz.
DSP allows system designers to compensate for the real-world limitations of microphones, speakers, amplifiers, and listening environments, resulting in significant improvements in audio quality through equalization, multiband compression, and limiting algorithms. The SigmaStudio graphical development tool for rapid development of custom signal flows, including, audio processing blocks such as filters, mixers, dynamics processors and amplifiers can also be used to program the ADAU1373.
