Add mp3 sound to your projects

Add mp3 sound to your projects

Posted on 16. Apr, 2009 by in Misc Modules

If your project calls for producing sounds or even pre-recorded voices you will really like this module! If you were to try to design your own sound output circuit, you'd have to delve deeply into analog calculations and amplifier designs, which is definitely not "modular electronics".

However, this handy, inexpensive mp3 module lets you records sounds and then activate them using your other circuit modules without much effort at all. The on-board mp3 chip lets you either record sounds using the included microphone or you can download mp3s via a serial SPI data connection. Once the sounds are on the board, you may trigger them as-needed using a PIC, Arduino or any other control system. Imagine giving your next project the voice of HAL from 2001 or building a custom pinball machine which plays a wide variety of sounds depending on what targets are hit. The potential is endless and you never have to break-out your calculus to figure-out some oddball quiescent current or anything like that!

Some features of the MP3 mini board include:

  • Includes VLSI VS1002 MP3 Chip
  • Data can be transferred using a standard SPI Connection
  • Microphone and Audio Out Connections Provided
  • LED Power Indication
  • Quick and Easy Solution for Adding Sound or Voice to your Control System
  • Ideal for Developing your own MP3 Player
  • Connects directly to most Microcontrollers
  • Board Dimensions: 45 x 55 mm

This is a very impressive little mp3 audio output board and the price is only $24 or so, making it perfect for nearly any project that calls for audio responses, sounds, or other feedback.
