I noted that the new PIC32 series micro controllers include I2S along with the SPI interface. Well at least a few in the range do. This got me to thinking:
- A 32 bit micro using a fairly efficient RISC architecture
- With I2S in and out
- That runs at 80MHz.
I chose the PIC32MX450F256H.
Surely to god I can do something fun with this. But what?
Ultimately I will try chucking some IIR filters in here to see how they go (there is heaps of processing time available). But in the first instance I want to do a DDS. Reason being that I have more active crossovers than I have speakers (and that is saying something! - ask my long suffering wife!).
One thing that I have been on the look out for is a decent DDS synthesister for audio band that has really low distortion. My current Audio synthesiser uses the AD9952 DDS chip. OK, this runs at 400MHz, but it does use a 14bit DAC, and can be run right down into the...
