Amy "Kryptos" sound system by Troika NG
« on: September 09, 2006, 07:59:52 AM »
Troika NG would like to announce that we have chosen a fine industry standard AC97 codec, the AD1888 manufactured by Analog Devices, marketed under the Soundmax┬« brand.   The sound codec is used in our Project “Prometheus"/ Amy’05.

This fine device brings many features (including AD’s special filters) used in Asus motherboards and Creative products etc.to the Amiga community.

In our design we use 6 audio connectors to provide a full surround sound system: Front, Left side, Right side, Center, Surround Sound via audio jacks and an SPDIF output through a standard RCA connector.  We also include an internal Intel™ HD-Audio standard header for case connections and so much more!

Some technical details: “The AD1888 is a 6 channel (supporting 5.1 surround sound) AC'97 2.3 compatible codec. It features SPDIF output, variable sample rates, 20-bit DACs, and multiple stereo analog inputs along with many cost saving features including: integrated headphone amplifiers, selectable microphone inputs with built-in preamplifiers, jack sensing (with auto-topology switching), hardware channel spreading and downmixing, as well as crystal-free operational modes.”

For more information visit http://www.soundmax.com/
PDF’s are available on the Analog Devices web site, however we have made available the PDF http://troikang.com/DL/AD1888.pdf on our website.

@Troika

You should know by now we are all visually inclined and therefore always hunger for pictures even if they are still work-in-progress :-)

I thought the hardware design was 'locked' ? Ah well, might as well have another :pint:

Ok, so we got to know now that "Kryptos" is a common low cost chip for around $2.51, fine.
But why don't you tell us why you still won't manage to show us a working prototype at BB4?
It think that would be far more Interesting for the most of us. :roll:

Shouldn't you rename your project Amy '07 by now? :)

@homer

I think their previous sound chip supplier dried up so they had to pick another sound chip.  It's all good as long as they get their motherboard out soon.

That was end of 2005. Don't tell me it took them a year to look through datasheets and decide for a new chip?!

There won't be any Amy'05 in the stores this year. Believe me...

I think they've been using this new audio system in their design for quite some time, but they've only now wanted to reveal it.

Makes sense - to deflect from the sad fact that they still don't manage to show anything even half-working.  :roll:

Anybody remembering this news release for BB3 from September 2005?
