New Sound Module
7 July 2011
Need a sound module for your embedded project that can drive a speaker directly, has bucket loads of memory, and can play back audio samples on command? Do we have a product for you! After much hunting and haggling and designing and testing, we present the MOD-1007 SoundOut audio module.
Compatible with the SOMO-14D module (at least, it uses the same playback chip - the pinout is slightly different), this module allows you to start sample playback using press buttons or using a synchronous (clocked) serial connection to your microcontroller, using an easy protocol. Of course, the PicPack library already has sample code available if you need a hand. The module plays back .AD4 files, which can be created from .MP3 or .WAV files using a utility provided.
