Hi Bert and Mike, The information that you have regarding the TDA18218, where can I get my hands on that? It would be interesting to take a shot at writing the driver, but I guess I would need some pointers in the right direction.
Would it be possible to get the information from you, or is such information freely available on the internet? Where should I start looking?
