HDMI ARC Input Board for VS1010 Developer Board

VS1010 ARC Board


HDMI ARC Input Board connects to the VS1010 Developer Board and allows to connect to HDMI to gain ARC capabilities.

ARC, or "Audio Return Channel" is a feature of the HDMI specification. With ARC, the TV "sends back" the audio which it either receives from a HDMI source, or from an internal source such as Youtube or Netflix video player, to HDMI ARC capable external speakers. TV manufacturers are adopting ARC instead of older interfaces such as optical, coaxial or analog to increase digital audio compatibility and cut down costs.
