SERCE offers a set of audio-optimised digital inputs that work in unison with a custom programmed ARM Cortex processor. The module measures 50 x 70 mm with all signals connected to board-to- board connectors. It supports PCM up to 32-bits/384kHz and DSD256, includes MQA* (optimized for ARM processor) with full decoder and renderer capability, USB HID, DoP decoding, and signal level calculation. SERCE features USB Audio Class 2.0 input, up to 4 AES-S/PDIF inputs, I2S input on HDMI or RJ45 socket, ARC input with CEC controlling, IR decoder, and internal I2S input for any extension. The ARM processor is a dual core Cortex M4/M7. The Cortex-M7 is dedicated for audio processing and USB including DFU secure updater and custom USB HID port. The Cortex-M4 is for customer applications with access to I2C, SPI, UART, GPIO’s. The system is highly configurable including formats, inputs, USB identifiers and names, MQA mode and renderer blobs. Please feel free to inform about specific applications.
