SLAS778C February 2013 – September 2021 TAS2505
The TAS2505 mono audio DAC supports data rates from 8 kHz to 192 kHz. The audio channel of the mono DAC consists of a signal-processing engine with fixed processing blocks, a digital interpolation filter, multibit digital delta-sigma modulator, and an analog reconstruction filter. The DAC is designed to provide enhanced performance at low sampling rates through increased oversampling and image filtering, thereby keeping quantization noise generated within the delta-sigma modulator and observed in the signal images strongly suppressed within the audio band to beyond 20 kHz. To handle multiple input rates and optimize power dissipation and performance, the TAS2505 allows the system designer to program the oversampling rates over a wide range from 1 to 1024 by configuring page 0, register 13 and page 0 / register 14. The system designer can choose higher oversampling ratios for lower input data rates and lower oversampling ratios for higher input data rates.
The TAS2505 DAC channel includes a built-in digital interpolation filter to generate oversampled data for the delta-sigma modulator. The interpolation filter can be chosen from three different types, depending on required frequency response, group delay, and sampling rate.
The DAC path of the TAS2505 features many options for signal conditioning and signal routing:
In addition to the standard set of DAC features the TAS2505 also offers the following special features:
