Raspberry PI PCM I2S driver #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Raspberry Pi I2S driver: This gets us all sorts of excited about CODEC projects! From philpoole:
This repository contains a very poor quality I2S PCM ALSA driver for Raspberry Pi. It will output 16 bits per sample, 44100Hz stereo I2S to use with a DAC similar to the TDA1541A. If you require different format or frequency then feel free to modify this driver to suit, but I can’t guarantee support.
This is a kernel driver, so in order to build this, you will need to be running a successfully built kernel, for which you have the kernel source code to which this driver can be built against.
make -C /home/pi/linux M=$PWD
(if your linux source tree lives at /home/pi/linux, for instance)
It is a work in progress which I hope to continue in time.
The first version uses an IRQ to keep the PCM FIFO full.
However, there are glitches in the audio due to the sheer mass of interrupts.
I hope to improve that with time by using DMA.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
