In the AC’97 design, the audio output is always sent to the jack. When a plug is inserted, the stereo signals contact the respective hca on the plug and are disconnected from the jack’s return pins.

Even though the actual controllee hardware is HD Audio, it will allow using the AC’97 front panel that way. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

However, as of [update]most audio hardware manufacturers did not implement the full specification, especially bit sampling resolution. When the plug is inserted, the isolated switch inside the jack informs the motherboard, and the codec sends audio to the headphones.

A similar isolated switch is used to detect when a microphone has been plugged in.

Intel High Definition Audio also called HD Audio or development codename Azalia is a specification for the audio sub-system of personal computers. Intel provides a specification for that header, but the signal assignments are different for AC’97 and HD Audio headers. Features of the specification include: Consequently, a loud audio passage may make the HDA motherboard with AC’97 dongle believe that headphones and microphones are being plugged and unplugged hundreds controlled times per second.

Computer motherboards often provide a connector to bring microphone and headphone signals to the computer’s front panel. Retrieved from ” https: Technical and de facto standards for wired computer buses. The different signal assignments can cause trouble when AC’97 front-panel dongles are used with HDA motherboards and vice versa. Jda motherboard can determine if the dongle contorller plugged in by examining the logic level on pin 4.

This page was last edited on 13 Cobtrollerat Retrieved 14 January An AC’97 dongle returns audio on pins 6 and 10 rather than a digital plug sensing signals. When a headphone is plugged into the front panel jack, the audio signal goes to the headphones; the return pins are disconnected, so no audio signal goes to the speakers. If the headphones are not plugged in, the jack directs the audio to the return pins that are connected to the speakers.

Like AC’97, HD Audio is a specification that defines the architecture, link frame format, and programming interfaces used by the controller on the PCI bus and by the codec on the other side of the link. In the HDA design, when the plug is not inserted, the codec sends the audio directly to the speakers the audio does not go out to the front panel and then loop back to the speakers. Consequently, an HDA motherboard would not detect the presence of an AC’97 dongle with a disconnected pin 4.


High-definition television High-definition video Ultra-high-definition television. Azalka motherboards with AC’97 audio need two jumpers to short the pins in case no front panel audio module is connected, so audio passes to the speakers. Likewise, some modern enclosures have both an “AC’97” and an “HDA” plug at the end of the front-panel audio cable.

In AC’97, pins 2 and 4 are audio ground, but pin jda is often disconnected.
