Overall System Description and Diagram

The mixer unit is a hybrid analog-digital device. The system is broken up into several logical blocks. Modules dedicated to handling audio inputs and outputs work in conjunction with matrix-mixer modules to provide the necessary functionality. A digital VU meter board provides audio level monitoring capability to the system. Additionally, a microcontroller is used to control the functions of the unit, with an LCD to display status information. Figure 16 shows the overall mixer unit diagram. This view shows the system in terms of its functional blocks.
