Audio-book with

Post by pyr » Wed 2010-08-25 8:30

Hello
I am designing an audio-book for blinds, based on the VLSI audio-book project.
It's a stand-alone system, using a VS1000 and a nand flash.

It is now working fine with SLC flash.
But I have to adapt it for MLC flash...
Do somebody already do this ?

And an complementary question to VLSI solution team:
Do you plant that next version of VS100 (may be VS1000e) will include MLC support ?

Best regards,
Pierre-Yves

We have prototype code of audio book software for MLC flash, but it is not documented well enough for release.

Before the holidays we made a rush release of a similar MLC application "VS1000 MLC Player", which contains some of the same parts. Both projects make heavy use of multiple programs loaded and run when needed. The MLC Player has three programs (init, MLC mass storage, and player), MLC Audiobook has 5 programs (divides player into init + read settings, player, and save settings + shutdown programs).

Note that for MLC you need the updated FLASH programming routine (included in the MLC Player package).

Both apps also work with large-page SLC memories as well, provided the FLASH parameters are correct.

Book with MLC flash

Post by pyr » Sat 2010-08-28 14:26

Thank you for your answer !
My SLC flash prototype is working with the book software I modified for "no display" and audio feedback button-navigation.
The other prototype, with a MLC flash, work as player with your "VS1000 MLC Player" software. Thank you very much for this release from 07/13/2010, I found it some days after.
As I don't uses display, I hope to be able to maintain a 3 part software:
- init.c based on your MLC project
- book.c, based on my version of book.c
- Poff.c, sams as the old one.
But the projet is not working until now !

So I am VERY interested in your prototype code of audio book software for MLC flash, even without documentation and without any warranty...

Have a good holiday time !
Next week, I will go to Africa (Benin and Congo). But I will continue to work on the project.

Best regards.

VSIDE for book and MLC

Post by pyr » Tue 2011-04-12 7:38

Hello !
I was out of Europe for many month...
I am now back, working on the display-less book for blinds.

Thank you for the VSIDE. Nice !
As the new version support overlays, do think it is possible to use VSIDE to debug the book ?

And do you have news about the MLC version of the book ?

Best regards.

Make.exe on windows

Post by pyr » Fri 2011-04-15 14:18

Bonjour

Je parle aussi français...

I downloaded VSIDE from the vlsi.fi web site (the "last" version, link avalible from the forum).
I use the gmake.exe with the Makefile.
You can find also a make.exe in c:\vskit\bin if you install vskit (on vlsi.fi web site).

I don't have a problem with the make itself.
I would like to use more place for overflows, and I can't modify TOTALSIZE value.
