ALC250 Professional AC'97 Rev Audio CODEC

Description

The ALC250 incorporates proprietary converter technology to achieve a high SNR (100 dB), sensing logics for device reporting, and a Universal Audio Jack« for improved user experience. The ALC250 AC'97 CODEC supports multiple CODEC extensions with independent variable sampling rates and built-in 3D effects. Two pairs of stereo outputs with independent volume controls, a mono output, and multiple stereo and mono inputs, along with flexible mixing, gain, and mute functions provide a complete integrated audio solution for PCs.The circuitry of the ALC250 CODEC operates from a 3.3V digital power and 5V analog power supply with EAPD (External Amplifier Power Down) control for use in notebook and PC applications. The ALC250 integrates a 50mW/20Ohm headset audio amplifier into the CODEC, saving BOM costs. It also supports the SPDIF out function (complies with AC'97 Rev 2.3) that offers easy connection of PCs to consumer electronic products, such as AC3 decoders/speakers and mini disk devices.The ALC250 CODEC supports host/soft audio from Intel ICHx chipsets as well as audio controller based VIA/SIS/ALI/AMD/nVIDIA/ ATI chipsets. Bundled Windows series drivers (Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP), EAX/ Direct Sound 3D/ I3DL2/ A3D compatible sound effect utilities (supporting Karaoke, 26 types of environment sound emulation, 10-band software equalizer), HRTF 3D positional audio and SensauraO 3DPA (optional) provide an excellent entertainment package and game experience for PC users. An integrated 14.318MHz -> 24.576MHz PLL circuit generates the required clock and eliminates the need for an external crystal. In addition, the ALC250 is embedded with a 7-band digital hardware equalizer to optimize speaker frequency response for mobile PCs.
