Reference levels for SGTL5000 analog gain

SGTL5000 codec has analog gain blocks on Line In (0 to 22.5dB) and Line Out (-52dB to +12dB) (according fig.2 SGTL5000 datasheet pdf). What are the reference levels for this dB-values?

Hello,

Indeed, the analog input block contains a stereo line input and a microphone input with mic bias. Either input can be routed to the ADC. The register field CHIP_ANA_CTRL->SELECT_ADC controls this selection.

In the other hand, the line input can be routed to the headphone output by writing CHIP_ANA_CTRL->SELECT_HP. This selection bypasses the ADC and audio switch and routes the line input directly to the headphone output to enable a very low power pass through.

The Table 5 and 6 from datasheet refer to the Audio Performance.

 

What you do mean with reference levels for this dB-values?

Regards,

David

As you know, decibel is a logarithm of the ratio of two values.

So, to get absolute value (for example, signal level on headphone output) we need to know reference value.
