I am looking for the specification for SPDIF, can you help me?

I am interested in transmitting RDI Frames over SPDIF interleaved with the audio.

I am using an analogue (rather than optical) RCA SPDIF interface and I am using a AK435 Audio DAC to generate the SPDIF frames.

xortam,

Thank you for your reply. I found the first link to the epanorama very useful.

I am working on a DAB Receiver IC and was thus aware of the Phillips DAB Receiver IC.

No problem. I simply used Google (http://www.google.com) to hunt these references down.

Google, hmm perhaps its time to change to another search engine. IMHO, Altavista aint that gr8 now...

After you've used google, no other search engine is so great anymore. (okay, maybe astalavista is, but that's a different story)

I still find that I have to use Northern Light on occasion - when I'm finding something really obscure like model/serial numbers on hardware etc.

Well, since this has turned out to be a "search" thread ... I've totally been converted to Google. Google is, by far, better than any search engine that I've used to date. It will usually find what I'm looking for and list it first. Google technology takes into account the propensity for users to access the links it returns for search results. It uses this MFU algorithm to sort results for similar searches in the future. The heuristics Google employs means the service just gets better and better over time. Bad news is http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif ... Eric Schmidt (CEO of Novell) has moved over to head up Google. Hope he's learned something from his failures at Novell.
