Texas Instruments  DEM-PCM2912AEVM

The DEM-PCM2912A EVM is a complete evaluation platform for the 16-bit, mono microphone input and stereo headphone output PCM2912A bus-powered audio codec with a USB interface. All necessary connectors and circuitry are provided for interfacing to audio test systems and commercial audio equipment.

A USB connector is mounted on the DEM-PCM2912A EVM. Stereo audio output and mono audio input are available on two stereo mini-jacks. The PCM2912A is an audio codec with a USB interface for a USB headset, USB headphones, and a USB audio interface box that integrates mono input, stereo headphone output, an analog loopback line, a programmable gain amplifier (PGA), and microphone bias. It is available in a 32-pin TQFP package.

The DEM-PCM2912A EVM also carries the Microsoft Windows® Logo License certification from the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). The DEM-PCM2912A has successfully passed the Microsoft WLP test (DTM Audio) for Windows Vista® x86/x64 platforms.
