ANNOUNCE: Linux driver for vs1053 and vs1063

Post by thehog »

Hi,

I recently uploaded a Linux driver on Sourceforge for vs1053. If you are interested, you're welcome to check it out.

https://github.com/rvp-nl/vs10xx-linux
Admin Edit: has changed to https://github.com/rvp-nl/vs10xx-linux

You will need some skills in embedded Linux development. The driver assumes that a SPI configuration is created in the board support. I have included an example, based on a MMnet1002 board (Atmel AT91SAM9260, ARM9 200Mhz). It should be easily portable to other boards.

The driver is capable of playing multiple files simultaneously. Playing a file can be done by eg.:

cat 'some song' > /dev/vs1053-1
madplay -o wav:/dev/vs1053-2 'some song'

Regards,
Richard.

Is this driver the most up to date one still?

Thanks in advance,

As far as I know this is the only public driver for vs1053 on Linux (?). I got email from a company that uses the driver (4x vs1053 on a arm9 board) with good performance. It's opensource so you're welcome to join development :-)
