The usage of digital audio system and digital audio IC allowed to deliver high-quality and room-filling sound, similarly allowed to design MP3 docking stations, space constrained application such as flat screen TV. In same way, integration of technique such as multi band dynamic range compression and full flexible amplification made it possible to enhance the sound and protection of speakers. For inter IC communication and data transmission of digital IC on same PC board, various standards are used for example, TDM, IS, PDM and others. While for inter PCB communication between IC, S/PDIF and Ethernet AVB technology standard is used. Further, audio system architectures are emphasizing on replacing analog part of audio chain with input and output transducers using digital connections. Since traditionally, there were various components involve such as microphones, preamps, ADCs, DACs, output amplifiers, and speakers all of this were connected via connection on PCB. In broader context, digital audio IC eliminates need to rout analog signals connection on PCB as well as usage an external mux. Digital audio IC are used in various devices such as  DTV, HDTV, UHD and multi-purpose monitors, sound bars and subwoofers, Notebooks/PC Speakers, Wireless/Bluetooth Speakers Smart Speakers, and others. In these applications, digital audio IC produces improved audio performance, smaller size, reduced cost, and making it possible for leading home-entertainment equipment manufacturers to deliver best-in-class audio experiences for consumers.
