Low Power Codec with Headphone Driver

The WM8988 is a low power, high quality stereo codec with complete integration of interfaces to 2 stereo headphone or line out ports. Advanced on-chip digital signal processing performs graphic equaliser, 3-D sound enhancement and automatic level control for the microphone or line input. The WM8988 can operate as a master or a slave, with various master clock frequencies including 12 or 24 MHz for USB devices, or standard 256 fs rates like 12.288 MHz and 24.576 MHz. Different audio sample rates such as 96 kHz, 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz are generated directly from the master clock without the need for an external PLL.
