The ST18-AU1 is a single-chip multi-function audio processor for Dolby AC-3, MPEG-1/MPEG-2 Layer-I/II audio encoded bitstreams, and DVD Linear PCM. It is capable of decoding up to 5.1 channels of input Dolby AC-3 or MPEG-2 multi-channel encoded audio, and down mixing to 2 channels of PCM output audio. Maximum input data rates for Dolby AC-3 bitstream and MPEG-2 audio bitstream are 448 Kbits/s and 912 Kbits/s respectively. It also supports up to 8 channel linear PCM input with by-pass, down-sampling, and down-mixing function.
