Part Number: PCM4222
Hello. 4 PCM4222's in a system, one master and three slave. Do all four devices' control pins get used (FS0/FS1, OWL0/OWL1, and FMT0/FMT1) or only the master device? Any input is appreciated.
The control pins of each device need to be configured independently. You'll also want to make sure the SUB pins are configured appropriately for each device so that the data is aligned in order.

In reply to Zak Kaye:
Thanks for the reply, Zak.
I'm assuming all the converter's control pins can be tied to single sets of lines without issue? Like a global control for sample rate, word rate, etc.?
It was my impression that the SUB pins are for TDM format, where data outputs are muxed onto a single bus. In this case, all converters are being given their own individual AES encoders. Do the SUB pins still apply in that case?
In reply to matt newport:
Yes the control pins could be tied together and driven high/low with a GPIO if desired. I assumed you were using TDM mode since one device is master and the other 3 slaves, but if you are using separate I2S buses then you are correct, the sub pins can all be tied low.
