VS1010B Developer Board Quick Start

Post by Panu » Tue 2017-06-06 8:38

Dear Members,
Welcome to the VS1010 Forum!

We're delighted to present you the Developer Board for VLSI's new MP3 Audio DSP Microcontroller, the VS1010. It's a cost optimized platform that can be used for a lot of different audio enabled devices.

The VS1010 developer board has a lot of features that are designed to maximally make use of VS1010's capabilities. For example, it has integrated microphone, external AD converter, a D class power amplifier, SD card and USB host and USB peripheral connectors. It has a VS23S010D that can be used for a video display. Ther's a port for an ESP2866 Wi-Fi module. It even has PS/2 mouse and keyboard connectors for the most adventurous.

The board might look a little complicated, but don't worry. Typical end applications, such as MP3 players, USB DACs and Audio books won't need most of the external components and will be much more simple. But with the developer board, it should be possible to write software for any of these applications with little or no modifications. As such, you should take note of how everything is connected in the developer board and design your own custom boards so that it's as compatible as possible with the developer board.

In this thread, we will be updating the documentation, files and SD card images that are helpful or needed to get the VS1010B Developer Board up and running. In-depth articles about software development for various purposes will be added as new topics.

Have fun, and as always, we're looking forward to hearing your feedback so that we can iron out any remaining bugs and steer our development towards those things that will be most useful for you!
