Period Deviation Tolerance Templates: A Novel Approach to Evaluation and Specification of Self-Synchronizing Audio Converters
Self-synchronizing converters represent an elegant and cost effective solution for audio functionality integration into SoC (System-on-Chip) as they integrate both conversion and clock synchronization functionalities. Audio performance of such converters is, however, very dependent on the jitter rejection capabilities of the synchronization system. A methodology based on two period deviation tolerance templates is described for evaluating such synchronization solutions, prior to any silicon measurements. It is also a unique way for specifying expected performance of a synchronization system in the presence of jitter on the audio interface. The proposed methodology is applied to a self-synchronizing audio converter and its advantages are illustrated by both simulation and measurement results.
