This page was last edited on 13 Octoberat Intel High Definition Audio also called HD Audio or development codename Azalia is a specification for the audio sub-system of personal computers.
Webarchive template wayback links Articles containing potentially dated statements from All articles containing potentially controloer statements All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from November In the AC’97 design, the audio output is always sent to the jack.
In AC’97, pins 2 and 4 are audio ground, but pin 4 is often disconnected. Retrieved from ” https: Features of the specification include: Many motherboards with AC’97 audio need two jumpers to short the pins in case no front panel audio module is connected, so audio passes to the speakers. Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses.
If the headphones are not plugged in, the jack directs the audio to the return pins that are connected to the speakers. Not present, physical key.

Even though the actual audio hardware is HD Audio, it will allow using the AC’97 front panel that way. It is strongly recommended that motherboard designers only use Intel HD Audio analog front panel dongles with the Intel HD Audio analog front panel header to insure that the jack detection and dynamic re-tasking capability is preserved.
A similar isolated switch is used to detect when a microphone has been plugged in. However, as controloer [update]most audio hardware manufacturers did not implement the full specification, especially bit sampling resolution. For the microphone jack, the return signal pins ground the microphone input when the microphone is not plugged in.

Consequently, a loud audio passage may make the HDA motherboard with AC’97 dongle believe that headphones and microphones are being plugged and unplugged hundreds of times per second. Interfaces are listed by their speed in the roughly ascending order, so the interface at the end of each section should be the fastest. From Wikipedia, the fontroller encyclopedia.

When a plug is inserted, the stereo signals contact the respective channels on the plug and are disconnected from the jack’s return pins. HD Audio can sense the presence of an audio dongle.
In the HDA design, when the plug is not inserted, the codec sends the audio directly to the speakers the audio does not go out to the front panel and then loop back to the speakers. An AC’97 dongle returns audio on pins 6 and 10 rather than a digital plug sensing signals.
When a headphone is plugged into the front panel jack, the audio signal goes to the headphones; the return pins are disconnected, so no audio signal goes to the speakers. Microphone bias Audio, right, in biased, mic. Like AC’97, HD Audio is a specification that defines the architecture, link frame format, and programming interfaces used by the controller on the PCI bus and by the codec on the other side contrpller the link.
List of digital television deployments by azala. Consequently, an HDA motherboard would not detect the presence of an AC’97 dongle with a disconnected pin 4. The different signal assignments can cause trouble when AC’97 front-panel dongles are used with HDA motherboards and vice versa. Likewise, some modern enclosures have both an “AC’97” and an “HDA” plug at the end of the front-panel audio cable.
Intel provides a specification for that header, but the signal assignments are different conttroller AC’97 and HD Audio headers.
