How can I connect a MEMS digital microphone with a I2S interface to the I.MX6 SSI interface?

I'd like to connect a microphone like this one, that is provided with a I2S interface, to the SSI interface of the I.MX6.

I saw in the i.MX 6Dual/6Quad Applications Processor Reference Manual, Rev. 3, 07/2015, that in Synchronous Mode (4-Wire Interface), each port will be a 4-wire interface (that is, RXD, TXD, TXC, TXFS). In this setup, receive data timing is determined by TXC and TXFS.

So, I'm thinking to use the following configuration:

  • TXC to provide the clock signal for the microphone
  • TXFS to provide the Word Select
  • RXD to receive the data from the microphone
  • TXD Not used!

Is it correct?


Thanks in advance!
