C and verify its operation using a signal source and oscilloscope or headphones. As supplied, the program reads input from the (green) LINE IN socket on the audio card and outputs to the (pink) LINE OUT and (black) HEADSET connections. 15 Measuring the Delay Introduced by DMA-Based I/O The extra delay between analog input and output, of BUFSIZE sampling periods, introduced by DMA-based i/o as implemented on the STM32F407, may be measured using a signal generator and oscilloscope. Connect the signal generator output to both the left channel of the (green) LINE IN socket on the Wolfson audio card and one channel of the oscilloscope, and connect another channel on the oscilloscope to the left channel of the (pink) LINE OUT socket on the Wolfson audio card.
The value of T is equal to the number of samples stored in buffer multiplied by the sampling period. c, using a microphone connected to the (pink) MIC IN socket on the audio booster pack as an input device. c. c). By feeding back a fraction of the output of the delay line to its input, a fading echo effect can be realized. 12, does this. c. c determines the number of samples stored in the array buffer and hence the duration of the delay implemented. The value of the constant GAIN determines the fraction of the output that is fed back into the delay line and hence the rate at which the echo effect fades away.
DMA-based i/o moves blocks or frames of data (samples) between codec and processor memory without CPU involvement, allowing the CPU to carry out other tasks at the same time, and is therefore more computationally efficient than polling- or interrupt-based i/o methods. c. 9 DMA in the TM4C123 Processor The TM4C123 DMA controller has 32 channels, each of which may be assigned to one of up to five different peripherals (each peripheral device in the TM4C123 processor is associated with a specific DMA controller channel).
