CODEC + Headphone Amp + Mono Speaker Amp + 4 Programmable PLLs


The ACS422Mx00 is a low-powered, high-fidelity integrated CODECs targeted at portable applications such as tablet personal navigation devices, portable projectors and other applications which only require a codec that offers a single speaker driver output in addition to a stereo HP output. The ACS422Mx00 device has been designed with rapid product customization in mind with the help of the ASC Tool.
