PC-based Control System of Serially Connected Multi-channel Speakers

직렬연결 다채널 스피커의 PC 기반 제어 시스템

  • Published : 2008.12.31


In this paper, we propose a system which easily controls the existing serially connected multi-channel speakers in a general personal computer by using a USB(Universal Serial Bus) interface. The personal computer as a host of the USB interface analyzes a sound source and sends audio data in a real-time fashion by the use of the isochronous transmission, one of four transmission methods provided by the USB interface. In addition, a channel is assigned by means of the bulk transmission, one of four transmission methods provided by the USB interface. Transmitted data from the USB host are sent to each speaker through compression and packet generation process. Each speaker detects corresponding digital data and regenerates audio signals through DAC(Digital-to-Analog Converter). A user can easily select a sound source file and a channel by the use of a GUI environment in a personal computer.
