I'm not sure as the documentation is pretty poor. It looks like it is supported by all of the variations that we've seen but only exposed as pins on A10 and A20. I'm also not sure who would ever use it with external devices. The reason why I've added it is that it is required by HDMI for supporting surround sound on the newer SoCs.
