This application note covers Resolving Audio Codec Enumeration Issues On The E31x.
On some E31x series devices, it has been found that the USB hub boots too slowly to properly enumerate the audio codec. This will result in the device not being able to use the codec which affects anyone using the 2.5mm audio connector. This note will explain:
- How to detect if your USB codec is properly enumerated
- How to force enumeration if the codec isn't enumerated
Detecting Enumeration Issues
An improperly enumerated audio codec can most reliably be detected by using the following command:
Which should return the following:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0556:0004 Asahi Kasei Microsystems Co., Ltd Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:2513 Standard Microsystems Corp. 2.0 Hub Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
'Asahi Kasei Microsystems Co., Ltd' line does not appear when you use the lsusb command, you likely have the enumeration issue and you should move on to the Force Enumeration section.
Force Audio Codec Enumeration
Important Note: It is highly recommended to back up your SD card before trying the following instructions. This procedure has a small chance of corrupting your file system. You can use the fsck command to verify your filesystem on reboot if you are concerned.
The audio codec can be made to enumerate by rapidly power-cycling the device by physically disconnnecting the power supply for less than 1 second. This can be done by either physically unplugging the unit or adding a physical switch between the unit and power supply or between the power supply and wall outlet. Performing a reboot without disconnecting power will not force the codec to enumerate. You must physically disconnect the device.
