RT9114B Audio Evaluation Board

EVB_RT9114BGQV

Share

The RT9114B is an I2S device receiving all clocks from external sources. It can support both master and slave mode with wide input sampling rate from 8kHz to 96kHz. The RT9114B operates with a PWM switching frequency of 352kHz or 384kHz, depending on the input sampling rate. A fully programmable data path routes these channels to the internal speaker drivers.

Purpose

The RT9114B is a high efficiency, I2S-input, stereo channel audio power amplifier which delivering 2x18W into 8 ohm BTL speaker loads. It can deliver over 90% power efficiency and eliminate the need for heat-sink. This document explains the function and usage of the RT9114BGQV evaluation board (EVB), and provides information for power-up operation, and the modification of the evaluation board and the circuit, to be suitable for individual requirements.


Introduction

General Product Information

The RT9114B is an I2S device receiving all clocks from external sources. It can support both master and slave mode with wide input sampling rate from 8kHz to 96kHz. The RT9114B operates with a PWM switching frequency of 352kHz or 384kHz, depending on the input sampling rate. A fully programmable data path routes these channels to the internal speaker drivers.

Power-up & Measurement Procedure

1. The 1X3 Header (JP4) is the RESETB. (JP4 setting : Short PIN1;2 = Disable, Short PIN2;3 = Enable).

2. The 1X3 Header (JP7) is the PWDNB. (JP7 setting : Short PIN1;2 = Disable, Short PIN2;3 = Enable).

3. The 1X3 Header (JP8) is the FAULTB.

4. The 1X3 Header (JP9) is the A_SEL. (JP9 setting : Short PIN1;2 = 1A, Short PIN2;3 = 1B) and see A_SEL setting as Table 1.

5. Apply 8Ω speakers to the speaker connection (GP5 (OUT_PL), GP6 (OUT_NL), GP7 (OUT_NR), and GP8 (OUT_PR).

6. Apply I2S digital audio signals to JP2 (PIN2 = MCLK (Option), PIN4 = LRCK, PIN6 = SCLK, PIN8 = SDI, PIN10 = SDO).

7. Connect the GND, SCL, SDA wires from Wrenboard to J2 (PIN1 = PVSS, PIN3 = SCL, PIN5 = SDA). Then connect the Richtek Wrenboard to the PC. Apply Wrenboard with 3.3V configuration and please refer to Wrenboard User Manual for the installation and operation. Please note you’ll need the RICHTEK Wrenboard I2C interface for controlling the RT9114B EVB.

8. Apply an input power supply (8V < PVCC < 26.4V) to the PVDD and PVSS (GND) pins respectively.

9. Apply an input power supply (3.3V) to the DVDD and PVSS (GND) pins respectively.

10. Turn on the power.

11. Apply the initial sequence. Please refer to RT9114B GUI User Manual to operate the GUI tool.

Dual Channel Digital Audio System with EQ and Frequency DRC Control

RT9114B

The RT9114B is a high efficiency, I2S-input, stereo channel audio power amplifier delivering 2x20W into 8Ω BTL speaker loads. It can deliver over 90% power efficiency and eliminate the need for heat-sink.

The built-in anti-pop functions can reduce the speaker′s pop noise under all kind of scenarios. Built-in protection circuits can provide over-temperature, over-current, over-voltage, and under-voltage protections and report error status.

The RT9114B is an I2S device receiving all clocks from external sources. It can support both master and slave mode with wide input sampling rate from 8kHz to 96kHz. A fully programmable data path routes these channels to the internal speaker drivers.

The RT9114B features three band DRC and flexible multi-band biquads for anti-clipping, power limiting, and speaker equalization.
