We are currently using four AD1974 devices in our design (say A, B, C and D), connected in a daisy chain mode. We will use the first device as master and the other three as slave. So, we are providing crystal as the clock source only to the Master. The three slave devices get the ALRCLK and ABCLK from the master.
In the case if we are giving input to only some of the slaves, but not to the master A, will it create any problem? How will the TDM output be in that case?
