Commands

Audio hardware codec driver control on <device> (full path specified e.g. /dev/class/codec/123 or only the devfs node name specified e.g. 123) or unspecified (picks the first device in /dev/class/codec). Only one command can be specified per invocation.

mode_bridged

  audio-codec-ctl [-d|--device <device>] m[ode_bridged] true|false

dai

  audio-codec-ctl [-d|--device <device>] d[ai] <number_of_channels>
    <channels_to_use_bitmask> pdm|upcm|spcm|fpcm none|i2s|left-stereo|right-stereo|1tdm|2tdm|3tdm
    <frame_rate> <bits_per_slot> <bits_per_sample>

Sets the DAI format to be used in the codec interface.

<number_of_channels>: Number of channels.

<channels_to_use_bitmask>: Sets which channels are active via a bitmask. The least significant bit corresponds to channel index 0.

pdm: Pulse Density Modulation samples.

upcm: Signed Linear Pulse Code Modulation samples at the host endianness.

spcm: Unsigned Linear Pulse Code Modulation samples at the host endianness.

fpcm: Floating point samples IEEE-754 encoded.

none: No frame format as in samples without a frame sync like PDM.

i2s: Format as specified in the I2S specification.

left-stereo: Left justified, 2 channels.

right-stereo: Right justified, 2 channels.

1tdm: Left justified, variable number of channels, data starts at frame sync changes from low to high clocked out at the rising edge of sclk. The frame sync must stay high for exactly 1 clock cycle.

2tdm: Left justified, variable number of channels, data starts one clock cycle after the frame sync changes from low to high clocked out at the rising edge of sclk. The frame sync must stay high for exactly 1 clock cycle.

3tdm: Left justified, variable number of channels, data starts two clock cycles after the frame sync changes from low to high clocked out at the rising edge of sclk. The frame sync must stay high for exactly 1 clock cycle.

<frame_rate>: The frame rate for all samples.

<bits_per_slot>: The bits per slot for all channels.

<bits_per_sample>: The bits per sample for all samples. Must be smaller than bits per channel for samples to fit.

<gain>: Current gain in GainType format reported in the supported processing elements vector.

<nsecs>: Latency added to the pipeline in nanoseconds.

<hex>: Vendor specific raw byte to feed to the processing element in hex format.
