Description: This is a breakout board for the ISD1932, a multiple-message record/playback device. This single chip can record up to 64 seconds worth of voice messages. Microphone inputs and speaker outputs are all handled by the ISD1932.
A switch is connected to allow selection of the ISD1932’s operating mode - address trigger or direct trigger. You must cycle the power after switching the mode. An LED is also populated on the board and will illuminate when the device is recording. An external resistor is necessary to select the record duration and sampling frequency, which can range from 21.2 - 64 seconds (4-12kHz sampling frequency).
The board breaks out all pins of the ISD1932 to 0.1" spaced headers. This product comes as shown in the pictures with filtering capacitors, an LED, mode selecting switch and the ISD1932 IC. The new version of this board also includes a microphone and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Based on 1 ratings:
I used this, along with a PicAxe 28X2 module, to build a “magic eight ball”, that answers questions by randomly selecting from eight recorded voice messages. The board has a mic built in and an audio jack for external speakers, which make it easier to use. The documentation (from the chip manufacturer) was complete and not too difficult. Some of the wording in it almost seemed to be translated but I was able to get what I needed.
The audio quality is excellent.
