Music Main board for diyer
Music Main board for diyer.
I plan build embedded board for single purpose playing back music. May people can have suggest for my project.
The spec as follows
CPU :VIA NanoTM ULV 1.0 GHz 533 MHz 5.0 W @ FlexVID
Chipset: VIA VX800
Audio control IC: VIA Vinyl Envy24MT PCI Audio Controller on broad
Ram: DDR2 SDRAM 4G on broad
Audio clock X 2 :
1ppm TCXO49.152 MHz (for 48,96,192 KHz)
1ppm TCXO22.5792 MHz ( for 44.1,88.2,176.4 KHz)
PCI-E: north bridge PCI-E only for Audio control IC on broad
USB X 2
SATA X 2
Ethernet X 1
PS/2 X 1
Main broad power: DC 12V
FAN power: none, Fanless , CPU & chipset mount on back side of MB, the bottom of case can use as heat sink.
SATA HD power: None on MB, Supply from independence power supply
Audio control IC power: None on MB, Supply from independence power supply
Audio clock 1ppm TCXO power: None on MB, Supply from independence power supply
SPDIF output X 1 (out put transformer Option)
I2S output X 1
Audio control IC DAC function En & disable
Audio control IC analog power En & disable
Display function En & disable
Disable Envy24MT ACD and analog input
Disable Envy24MT AC 97; AC link function.
Disable Envy24MT I2C out put.
Disable Envy24MT UART
Disable VX800 audio function
power connector on broad ,
SATA connector on broad
VGA connector on broad
On/off connector on broad
LED connector on broad
windows driver & Linux driver
Sounds like a really cool project, subscribed.
- a wifi module, so that it's easier to control it via phone or link to a NAS;
- a mini storage, something like a CF, where to install a light OS like voyage mpd;
- IMHO there's too much ram, I think that 2 gb would be enough.
How do you think to realize/produce this project?
How much would cost a mainboard like this?
And what is the form factor?
Plus: would be really cool if you add also a suggested powersupply or a schematic to build it.
GREAT IDEA DUDE! :D
I think the wifi module make noise easy to audio signal, I try make a pure bit stream MB. So I think connent AP or HUB to make wifi function, Just for in case.
mini storage, Yes,I plan 64MB in BIOS for user.
Cause try to reduce PCI bridge complex, I didnt plan to use CF function. There is small SSD SATA cheap and fast for different OS.
One 24/192 program is almost 4G , After this project I hope can star another driver & program project, at that time upload play list to ram use DMA channel mapping to audio IC. so I think need that.
I got VIA pepole support to make it come turth. I didnt get all the cost. but I hope it will be lower 650 USD, I am not sure for now.
The form factor not decided and will not follow the PC base.
Power supply will make sound different. I do not know what is right way. Hope pepole can try then.
Hope I can make it.
What have you got/done so far?
I mean have you already got a prototype or something similar or this one, that you have exposed is just an idea?
How's going the work?
Which dac chip is going to be used? Or will MB contain I2S headers for external dac chip?
I change the architecutre to intel atom E640, the first engineering sample will be done on the end of March. I will paste the picture then.
VIA Envy24 HT has DAC funtion. I chouse it because it support dual XO(48,44.1 base) input. But I will not use DAC function. There is I2S RJ45 connector on broad.
