The CMX7261 Multi-transcoder IC is a member of the CML DuraTALK family of digital voice products, providing multiple speech coders and an analogue audio codec in a single chip.
The CMX7261 features voice encoding and decoding through an Analogue Front End or transcoding operations over its digital interfaces.
Input data and control are via an SPI compatible C-BUS which has a write-through ability to manage an external SPI controlled device using only one host SPI interface.
The CMX7261 utilises CML’s proprietary FirmASIC® technology. Sub-systems are configured by a Function Image data file that is uploaded (by the host or an external serial memory) during device initialisation and defining the device’s function and feature set.
Two Function Images are available, these can be downloaded from the CML Technical Portal (contact for access):
Devices are available through our Distributor Network.
There are two Function Images currently available:
Linear PCM, CVSD and G.729A speech coders
8, 16 and 32 kHz sampling
Packed and unpacked frame formats
µ-law, A-law PCM compression
Voice Activity Detection

The device’s functions and features can be enhanced by subsequent Function Image™ releases, simplifying in-the-field upgrades.
Q. Should pull-up or pull-down resistors be connected to CMX7261 device GPIO pins (GPIOA, GPIOB, GPIOC, and GPIOD)?
A. The CMX7261 features flexible GPIO pins that can be independently configured via C-BUS serial interface commands to operate in one of the following modes: CMOS digital output, CMOS digital input or CMOS digital input with bus hold. Bus hold automatically engages a 75kohm internal pull-up or pull-down resistor that reinforces the current logic state of the input signal. As is normally the case, the state of a CMOS digital input will be indeterminate and may increase device supply current when the input’s voltage is not at valid ‘0’ or ‘1’, i.e. when the node voltage is “floating.” When the CMX7261 is RESET (by asserting its RESETN pin, issuing a C-BUS General RESET or by triggering an internal power on reset) all its GPIO pins are immediately placed in CMOS digital input mode. Any GPIO pins not being pulled either up or down by an external load will be floating. Once a Function Image™ is loaded into the device then all its GPIO pins are placed in CMOS digital input with bus hold. If user circuits require one or more GPIO pins to be held at a deterministic ’0’ or ‘1’, i.e. not floating after RESET and before the Function Image™ is loaded then that circuit should connect external pull-up or pull-down circuits to such pins.
