DAI Drivers

For the documentation of support devices refer to Supported Devices.


DAI drivers provide access to the Digital Audio Interfaces supported by the platform.

Programming Flows

DAI Initialization

When ADSP enters D0, the dai instances are registered in the list maintained by the lib.

Configuration & Commands

Before the dai client starts the device, it is configured with parameters from the IPC command.

participant host as "Host"
participant ipc
participant platform
participant dai_comp as "audio/dai"
participant dai
participant dai_hw

host -> ipc : ipc_dai_config(config)
   activate ipc

   ipc -> platform : dai_get(config->type, config->id)
      activate platform
   ipc <-- platform : dai ptr
   deactivate platform

   ipc -> dai : dai_set_config(config)
      activate dai
      dai -> dai_hw : setup
      activate dai_hw
   ipc <-- dai
   deactivate dai

host <-- ipc
deactivate ipc

host -> dai_comp : dai_comp_trigger(cmd)
   note right: Full call path includes parent pipeline
   activate dai_comp
   dai_comp -> dai : dai_trigger(cmd)
      activate dai
      dai -> dai_hw : update
   dai_comp <-- dai
host <-- dai_comp

Using DAI Driver API

See DAI Drivers API


The API is accessed through a common structure; however, an implementation may keep some specific private data attached to the dai.private pointer.
