Figure 17. ADC Output for Lost Synchronization
Setting the ADC Sampling Frequency with XTI as Clock Source
Register 31h holds the bytes that control the dividers used to bring the high-speed, 24.567-MHz clock down to
SCK, BCK, and LRCK as used by the ADC.
While the registers allow operation beyond 96 kHz, the ADC itself does not.
Analog Inputs to the ADC
The ADC module of the PCM9211 has two independent input channels: V
unbalanced inputs, each capable of 0.6 V
a buffering operational amplifier and a low-pass filter.
One unbuffered common voltage output pin, V
internally biased to a dc voltage level of 0.5 V
ADC. This pin may be used to bias external circuitry (such as an ADC driver op amp), but the load impedance
must be high enough because the output impedance of this pin is typically 12.5 kΩ.
The oversampling rate of the PCM9211 ADC is fixed at 64f
External ADC Mode
To use an external ADC instead of the integrated ADC, the PCM9211 supports External ADC Mode. This option
enables a connection with an external, 192-kHz capable ADC via the MPIO_B ports. The external ADC must be
a clock slave to the PCM9211. The clock source for the external ADC can be selected using Register
42h/ADCLK (the same register that controls the clock source for the internal ADC).
To lower power consumption in the PCM9211, the onboard ADC can be set to power-down state using Register
To use the external ADC mode, Register 6Fh/MPBSEL must be set to '101' (External Slave ADC Input). Then,
each MPIO_B port is assigned for MPIO_B0 = EASCKO (output), MPIO_B1 = EABCKO (output), MPIO_B2 =
EALRCKO (output), and MPIO_B3 = EADIN (input). The MPIO_B pins should be connected according to this
MPIO_B0 to ADC system clock input

MPIO_B2 to ADC LR clock input
MPIO_B3 to ADC data output
