VGA + VS1053B

Post by cicciocb »

Hi,
I've put a little video of a radio streaming using the VS1053B + the VGA to have a nice radio streaming with Audio Spectrum Analyser.

Yes, is the good one. I have the same too. You can do a wonderful webradio with this module.

Good, I'll have a look tomorrow ... if I have one it's up in the hanger cctv room, so I'll need to run the gauntlet of the orphan kittens.

Do you have the pinout for it ?
Be interesting to see how much of it will work 'as-is' with the S3 UNO clone.
Even just the SD reader would be making some good use of it.

BTW, could the streaming radio concept be used to stream audio from another source, such as a mic ?
(A 'one to many' wifi intercom system would have its uses).


Edit PS, keep your eyes open for any info about the purple S3 UNO clone please, I haven't been able to find anything besides the minimal listing info.

I do not have the Arduino version (red) but the green one with an audio connector and line in, but I have not tried it yet due to possible problems with audio gnd, I read on the TheBackShed.com forum and also a possible solution.
I haven't gotten around to building the VGA version yet either. Being able to flash the internal components and the firmware. I'm busy with many things at the same time.

But green could be better for the environment.

Tomorrow I'll give more details. Robin, in fact I don't have the same as you have ( the Arduino shield) but the wiring should be easy.
I tested with the esp32 and with the esp32-s3 and it work with nearly all the streams I tested, in particular with the aac and chunked Https

I've got one of the red boards the same as Electroguard's on which I did a (very fiddly) cut and link hardware mod to make it boot up in serial mode with access to the midi instruments over serial interface for a simple rhythm generator box. Francesco, does your support for this chip give access to the instrument wavetables?
