Texas Instruments  PCM5242RHBEVM

The PCM5242RHBEVM is a complete evaluation kit of the PCM5242 Audio DAC for use with a personal computer running the Microsoft Windows ™ operating system. The PCM5242RHBEVM can be used in conjunction with PurePath™ Studio to take advantage of the fixed-function processing and mini-DSP processing capabilities of the PCM5242. After PurePath Studio evaluation software, found online at http://www.ti.com/tool/aicpurepath_studio, the PCM5242RHBEVM allows direct evaluation of the device performance, operating characteristics and eases software development and system prototyping. Using the PCM5242RHBEVM connects to a PC with by USB which provides power, control, and streaming audio data to the PCM5242RHBEVM for reduced setup and configuration. The PCM5242RHBEVM can be configured for external control signals and audio data in advanced operation, which allows prototyping and connection to the rest of the development or system.

PurePath Studio enables customers to take full advantage of the fixed-function audio processing and full mini-DSP capabilities of the PCM5242. Using PurePath Studio customers can choose a fixed function audio process flow with the PCM5242 and use features such as volume control, EQ, and DRC. The PCM5242 family can employ many more algorithms additionally, as customers can configure their own adaptable, full mini-DSP process flows with these devices, specifically suited to their application.
