16.3.1 WM8978 Introduction

WM8978 is a low power, high quality stereo multimedia digital signal CODEC introduced by Wolfson. It is mainly used in portable applications such as digital cameras and camcorders. Advanced on-chip digital signal processing includes a 5-band equaliser, a mixed signal Automatic Level Control for the microphone or line input through the ADC as well as a purely digital limiter function for record or playback. Additional digital filtering options are available in the ADC path, to cater for application filtering, such as “wind noise reduction”.
