Does hifi sheild support purepath technology

Does it use Texas Instruments DACS that supports purepath that allows me to create our own DSP on the chip

PCM5242 DAC on our HiFi Shield 2 board has the miniDSP internally.
But we couldn't find any Linux compatible driver/tools to utilize the DSP.

I have no idea.
TI hasn't updated the software over 5 years.
Even PMC5242 is not included in the list of supported devices.

BTW, which software do you develop for the miniDSP?

I just saw that it allows us to create our own DSP on those chips with those chips with no license fees

You can request the more modern software here:

I made a request, I will update here if I get access.

You must have the PurePath Console Mother Board to interface with the software?

I was denied access to the software on the premise they were unable to verify my information... whatever that means.
