The ADSP-21469 datasheet rev 0 shows tMCFDZ (DAT/SIG Output Time to Three-state)  parameter to be 15ns. However, MediaLB specs require this value for 1024*fs to be less than 6.1ns. Is this a concern?

The specification of 15ns in the ADSP-21469 datasheet is measured as the time taken for the voltage on the MLB pin (DAT/SIG) to reach VDD_EXT/2.  However, the output driver for the ADSP-21469 MLB device would have shut down earlier, and, in the presence of an active driver in the system, the new driver will be able to pull the bus to the desired value without any bus contention. In the case where there is no active driver, the ADSP-21469 MLB output driver will shut down, and the MLB pin (DAT/SIG) will remain at VDD_EXT/2.
