The I2S-MC core integrates eight channels of Inter-IC Sound compatible serial buses. I2S is a well-known stereo audio transmission standard, widely used to connect system elements such as Analog to Digital and Digital to Analog converters.
By using the I2S-MC module in a SoC design, a designer can easily integrate the core used for multi-channel audio transmission with the master system based on a standard AMBA APB bus for further data processing. In order to facilitate the use of the I2S core in AMBA bus based microprocessor systems, it is provided with an AMBA? APB bus wrapper, transmit and receive FIFO control units, special function registers block (SFR), and 8-channels of the I2S core.
