Can I connect from Amanero Isolator S01 to Ian FIFO board via U.FL like the attached image? .

Thank you .

See attached. I've circled the dots on the pcb drawing that show a through hole connection that you are able to use to take the isolated i2s from before the flipflops. If feeding the i2s to Ian's FIFO this would be the preferred way of connecting IMO. Try your best to have a separate ground connection that corresponds to each i2s signal wire to achieve GSGSGSGS signal arrangement. May mean soldering the ground wire on to the SMD pad for the flip flop.

To take from the u.fl headers you would need to use a 0ohm resistor to jumper from input to output of each of the flip flop ic positions. There is often very little point in using u.fl on the input to Ian's FIFO, on the output I would go out of my way to use u.fl between FIFO and DAC but on the input, not much point IMO with the clock speeds present on the Amanero.

There is probably a 3rd option to reclock based on the amanero clock somehow but that seems unnecessarily complex when using Ian's FIFO.


Cheers,
Chris

Hope you could hang in there for a while and sorry for any inconvenience. Let me know if anyone has concerns. In the meantime I will continue with the support.
Hi All,

I am trying to get in touch with the supplier to confirm delivery date for the boards. It has been quite a while and many have also asked me about this. Will keep pressing and as soon as I get some news I will update.

Thank you for your help.
At the second choice, why use 0 Ohm resistor?, can I bypass between the input and output IC flip-flops? . I'm confused whether there is a difference when using the 0 Ohm resistor & bypass ?.

Regards ,
Van Duy

Boards are all in fab now and expected to be completed by end of next week. Will advise shipping date soon afterwards.

neater and more consistent impedance, but a solder bridge or piece of flat wire does fine in a pinch

Ordinarily, I will be worried about using a wire link but since the signals go into to Ian's FIFO and gets regenerated anyway, it does not matter much. You could also cut one end of the UFL cable assembly, strip to get the leads and dovetail to the pin pads/header just after the isolator section of the S01 board.

Yes, there is no point clocking the Amanero Re-Clocker if connecting to Ian's Fifo unit as the input buffer will wipe out any clock signature. So isolation only if used this way.

But, there could be some benefits if this Re-clocker board is used after Ian's Fifo Re-clocker if the Ref clock used with the Amanero Re-clocker and the Flip-flop action is better than that on Ian's board- again all these are theoretical analysis

So, how much of the board is assembled? Do I need additional parts for the isolator/reclocker?

Acko's original post indicates that it's a bare board(s) and has/will provide a BOM (casually following the thread and can't remember if he already posted it)
