  • ・This LSI is an IC which integrates the WAV/AAC/WMA/MP3 decoder with built-in USB host
        interface, SD memory card interface, audio DAC, system control functions and
        internal CORE power supply regulator circuit.
    ・All the operations, from read of AAC/WMA/MP3/WAV files written in a memory device
        having the USB interface or a SD card to output of these to an audio system using
        KEY or I²C interface commands, are integrated in a single chip.
    ・The LSI supports external operations in stand-alone mode, which uses a command from
        the KEY input configured using the key matrix (hereinafter referred to as MODE1)
        and in slave mode, which uses a command from the master microcomputer using
        the built-in I²C interface (hereinafter referred to as MODE2). Select either MODE1
        or MODE2 at power ON.
