Write safeload to control Medium Size EQ

Hi all. Good day.


I'm trying to use MCU to send to safeload register to enable/disable Medium size EQ in SS Project. I'm having trouble in doing this.

The drawing was as per attached. I have no idea what's went wrongs. Hoping to get help in this forum.


The testing below were done to control EQ which center frequency is 2000Hz, Q=3, System Frequency Fs=48000Hz

I'm using ADAU 1701-Eval.


Method 1: Mathematics calculation

I had tried to use the mathematics calculation as in Help> Algorithm Information > EQ Algorithm > Peaking

Common Variables:

        boost = -40,   Fs= 48kHz,   f0 = 2000Hz,  gain =0, 

A  = 10^(boost/40)

ω0 = 2*pi*f0/Fs

alpha = sin(ω0)/(2*Q)  //(type: Peaking)    

gainLinear = 10^(gain/20)



a0 =  1 + alpha/A

a1 = -2 * cos(ω0)

a2 =  1 - alpha/A

b0 = (1 + alpha*A) * gainLinear

b1 = -(2 * cos(ω0)) * gainLinear

b2 = (1 - alpha*A) * gainLinear

Yet,  no luck. Because this calculation would gave different values as in Capture Window.



Method 2: Capture Window

I had tried to use data from capture windows(as in attachment below). But still no luck. The 2kHz audio was still heard and persist.



MCU Safeload Codings:

For you information, I'm using Arduino Ethernet. Communication to DSP was done in I2C. Tested connection is working fine by reading from DSP Readback block.


Here are the main part:


void loop (){


                val_EQ0B1[0] = 0x00; val_EQ0B1[1]= 0x59; val_EQ0B1[2]=0xcf; val_EQ0B1[3] =0x95;  // B0 {0x00, 0x59, 0xCF, 0x95};  *hard-coded values for f0=2000

                val_EQ1B1[0] = 0xff; val_EQ1B1[1]= 0x53; val_EQ1B1[2]=0x3e; val_EQ1B1[3] =0x72;   //  B1 {0xff, 0x53, 0x3e, 0x72 };

                val_EQ2B1[0] = 0x00; val_EQ2B1[1]= 0x59; val_EQ2B1[2]=0x0a; val_EQ2B1[3] =0x15;  // B2 {0x00, 0x59, 0x0a, 0x15 };

                val_EQ1A1[0] = 0x00; val_EQ1A1[1]= 0xac; val_EQ1A1[2]=0xc1; val_EQ1A1[3] =0x8e;  // A1 {0x00, 0xac, 0xc1, 0x8e };

                val_EQ2A1[0] = 0xff; val_EQ2A1[1]= 0xcd; val_EQ2A1[2]=0x26; val_EQ2A1[3] =0x56;   //  A2  {0xff, 0xcd, 0x26, 0x56 };

                    i2c_safeload_write_block(Dev_Address, 0x0815, Addr_Filter2_EQ0B1, val_EQ0B1, 4);

                    i2c_safeload_write_block(Dev_Address, 0x0816, Addr_Filter2_EQ1B1, val_EQ1B1, 4);

                    i2c_safeload_write_block(Dev_Address, 0x0817, Addr_Filter2_EQ2B1, val_EQ2B1, 4);

                    i2c_safeload_write_block(Dev_Address, 0x0818, Addr_Filter2_EQ1A1, val_EQ1A1, 4);

                    i2c_safeload_write_block(Dev_Address, 0x0819, Addr_Filter2_EQ2A1, val_EQ2A1, 4);

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you very much
