I want to add an array of Invensense Digital microphones via I2S interface and saw a kernel driver code ics43432.c [1] as codec which could work.
The microphone array needs settings and Masterclock, only sends Digital data at Bitclock rate and bitclock an Wordsync signal needed to drive a I2S data input.
I did not find any description activating these chips on the beaglebone, I have the beaglebone green.

So may questions:

- Does anybody know if this has been done and what steps are needed therefore ?

- If not, I  guess I have to write at least an devicetree overlay. Is there something other to do ?

the documentation in kernel notes only two lines to add::

   ics43432: ics43432 {  
= "invensense,ics43432";

where should i put this ?

- Is there a standard way writing a new overlay for the mcasp and codec and later add an new codec kernel source for an array ?

- Is it wise for example to start from ctag-face-2-4 dts as a template like am335x-boneblack-ctag-face.dts (not an overlay) or any other overlay only using I2S input.
  Any recommendation ?

Any hints are appreciated.

 Thanks !
