110/114 dB, 192 kHz, 2-in, 6-out Multi-channel Codecs with S/PDIF Receiver

The CS42516/26 audio codec family provides two analog-to-digital (A/D) and six digital-to-analog (D/A) Delta Sigma converters, as well as an integrated S/PDIF receiver. The CS42516/26 family’s integrated S/PDIF receiver supports up to eight inputs, clock recovery circuitry and format auto-detection. The internal stereo A/D converter is capable of independent channel gain control for single-ended or differential analog inputs. All six channels of the D/A converter provide digital volume control and differential analog outputs. The CS42516 and CS42526 are ideal for audio systems requiring wide dynamic range, negligible distortion and low noise, such as audio/video receivers, DVD receivers and digital speakers.
