Board has18 external pinsof trigger (external trigger pins) that are used for track selection. Using thefull-duplex connector, we can chooseup to 256 tracksand control its volumein real time. The heart of the module is the microcontrollerCypress PSoC CY8C29466-24SXI which transmitsMP3 data from a microSD card for audio system VLSI VS1063.
Powering of player of the SparkFun MP3 Trigger
The module can power in several ways. By connectingexternal power adapter with DC plug (5.5 mm x 2.1 mm) with voltage from4.5 V to 12 V.
With a jumper near the DC socket. By default, it is set onVBUS. When using an external power supply to the DC slot, switch USB / EXT performs the function ON / OFF.
The module can be charged viasoldering of powering wiresdirectly to the through-holes located on the rear side of the board.
MP3 Trigger can be integrated with another project which uses a 5 V for power supply(e.g. USB port), or viathe USB FTDI adapter.
