Budget Serial MP3 Player Kit

Product Details

A low cost serial MP3 board for playing music / speech and MIDI files in your PICAXE project. Simply save your music MP3 files onto a microSD card (not included) and then insert the microSD card into the MP3 playback module (the speaker and fully assembled MP3 module are included as part of this self-assembly kit).

By connecting 3 wires to the PICAXE project (signal, power, ground) you can then play any track (and adjust the sound volume) by using simple serial commands. If desired an additional 'BUSY' feedback signal may also be fed back to the PICAXE chip (so that you can detect when the tune has stopped).

Playback may also be controlled manually via the 3 switches on the PCB - play, next track/volume+, previous track/volume-

A miniature 8 ohm speaker is included within the kit, although you may also choose to use a different size of speaker if desired.

This module is also supplied as part of the PICAXE-14 Audio Project Kit

This module requires a microSD card (not included). This is the same type of memory card as used in mobile phones so many people may already have a spare microSD card available. This type of card is also widely available in supermarkets.
