How do the iMX6ULL ESAI pins map to I2S pins?

I want to connect eight MAX98357A PCM input class D power amps to the ESAI interface.

Igor,

Thank you for your response, but I've been studying that application note(AN1848) for a few days.

I still don't understand how the iMX6ULL ESAI pins map to I2S pins.

AN1848 Table 1-2 describes the following ESAI pins:

SCKR, FSR, HCKR, SCKT, FST, HCKT, SDO5/SDI0, SDO4/SDI1, SDO3/SDI2, SDO1, SDO0.

The iMX6ULL datasheet doesn't reference the names of the ESAI pins.

The Pins for i.MX software names the following ESAI pins:

RX_CLK, RX_FS, RX_HF_CLK, TX0, TX1, TX2_RX3, TX3_RX2, TX4_RX1, TX5_RX0, TX_CLK, TX_FS, HF_CLK

I2S is commonly: DataOut, DataIn, BitCLK, FrameCLK, MasterCLK

The MAX98357 only uses: BitCLK, FrameCLK, and DataIN

On the iMX6ULL ESAI interface, which pins should be connected to BitCLK, FrameCLK, and DataIN?

Best regards,

Rogers

Igor,

I may have just figured it out:

BitCLK = HF_CLK

FrameCLK = TX_FS

DataIN = TX0

Is that correct?

Igor,

I appreciate your help, but I'm a hardware engineer trying to figure out which pins to connect the on iMX6 to the MAX98357. I do not understand that code.

My problem is the naming convention from the app note doesn't match the pin names found elsewhere.

I think frame sync is D4 and the data outs are D1, F3, E5, F5, F2, D2. But, which is the bit clock? Pin D3 or E4?

Best regards,

Rogers
