[wdmaudiodev] Re: Discovery of Analog Audio Device

Hello all,

Most HD Audio codecs now on the market support some type of impedance
sensing in hardware, in addition to simple detection of whether a jack is
physically plugged in. Almost all HD Audio codecs also feature some form of
multi-tasking support, to allow the analog I/O ports to change functions on
the fly.

The paper that Hakon provided a link to was the catalyst for various chip
companies to implement the impedance sensing functionality.

Appendix D of my book, High Definition Audio for the Digital Home, goes into
this subject much more deeply, and was written after many hard lessons were
learned.

I led the HW and SW teams for the first chip company to implement impedance
sensing, so the information in the appendix is very real, and not
theoretical.

Best,

David Roach
