C9Z390-PGW Circuit Analysis Continued
The audio solution consists of a Realtek ALC1220 rated up to 120dB and supports an integrated headphone AMP. However, and Supermicro added a Texas Instruments OPA1612 for the front headphone output. They also have audio capacitors and a physical PCB divide to improve audio performance.
We get an i219v PHY for the Gbit LAN. The AQC107 is used for 10G LAN, but I couldn't get the heat sink off. The Parade PS175HDM is the chip used to provide the HDMI 2.0 port on the rear IO.
These Texas Instruments TUSB1002 chips are 10Gbps dual-channel linear USB 3.1 re-drivers. A single ASMedia ASM1543 is used to control the type-C controller.
The internal USB 3.1 type-C header also gets one of the USB 3.1 re-drivers, and it has its own ASMedia ASM1543 on the rear IO.
A PEX8747 is located under a heat sink, and it takes x16 from the CPU and outputs x32 PCI-E 3.0 lanes. Check out that trace swizzle. An IDR6V41642B is a clock generator so you can overclock the BCLK.
A nuvoton NCT6792 is the main SuperIO controller. The motherboard has a single 128Mbit BIOS ROM, and a GD75232 driver and receiver chip is used to provide the COM port functionality. An NEC R5F104ACA microcontroller controls the onboard RGB LED headers and the RGB.
