AC’97 Audio on i.MX6 Qseven Development Platform
iWave Globally Stands The First
iWave feels privileged to announce that iWave is the first in the entire globe for very successfully designing and testing the AC’97 Audio functionality in Freescale's i.MX6 CPU. iWave's core Linux BSP team has broken the limitations & implemented the AC’97 Audio interface on Linux BSP and tested AC’97 Audio In/Out on iWave’s i.MX6 Qseven Development platform called RainboW-G15-Q7D. Since Qseven specification 1.2 strictly requires AC’97 interface for audio interface, AC’97 Audio availability for i.MX6 CPU is the new milestone achieved by iWave in ARM Qseven arena. Though the newly published Qseven R2.0 specification included the I2S interface for audio, most of the existing Qseven carriers support the AC97 codec. This imposes the bottlenecks on using the Qseven SOMs with audio interface requirement. By testing AC’97 Audio on i.MX6 CPU, iWave has overcome this bottleneck of using ARM core CPUs with audio in Qseven form factor.
