Sorry I don't have good news for you.  The CA0132 is very dependent on
the firmware that is loaded into the DSP that resides in the codec.

To get your system to work you'll have to obtain the firmware that was
designed for your motherboard, then change the Linux driver to be able
to talk to it, without a spec for how it works.

This is not impossible, but it would be rather time consuming.
