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 https://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.

  • Use as a target board to work with the programmable miniDSP core, allowing developers to integrate filters, dynamic range controls, create customer or selectable digital-filter latency and performance
  • USB connection for power, streaming audio and access to control register
  • Ability to work with either software or hardware configuration
  • SPI or I2C control
