Description: VS1063 is an easy-to-use, versatile encoder, decoder and codec for a multitude of audio formats. They can be hard to get hold of but we've got them!

The VS1063 contains a high-performance, proprietary, low-power DSP core as well as ROM memory, 16KiB instruction RAM and up to 80 KiB data RAM for user applications running simultaneously with any built-in decoder! There's built-in serial control and input data interfaces, up to 12 general purpose I/O pins, a UART, as well as specialized peripherals like a high-quality variable-sample-rate stereo DAC and a stereo ADC, followed by an earphone amplifier and a common voltage buffer.

VS1063 can act both as an MP3 decoder or encoder slave IC in a system with a microcontroller, or as a stand-alone circuit that boots from external SPI memory.

Features:

  • Encoders: MP3; Ogg Vorbis; PCM; IMA ADPCM; G.711(µ-law,A-law); G.722 ADPCM
  • Decoders: MP3 (MPEG 1 & 2 audio layer III (CBR +VBR +ABR)); MP2 (layer II) (optional); MPEG4/2 AAC-LC(+PNS), HE-AAC v2 (Level 3) (SBR + PS); Ogg Vorbis; FLAC; WMA 4.0/4.1/7/8/9 all profiles (5-384kbps); WAV (PCM, IMA ADPCM, G.711 µ-law/A- law, G.722 ADPCM)
  • Full Duplex Codecs: PCM;G.711(µ-law,A-law);G.722ADPCM
  • Streaming support
  • Up to 96KiB RAM for user code and data
  • Unique ID for user code protection
  • Quiet power-on and power-off
  • I2S interface for external DAC
  • Serial control and data interfaces
  • Can be used either as a slave co-processor or as a standalone processor
  • UART for debugging purposes
  • New functions may be added with soft- ware and up to 12 GPIO pins

  • This is not a MIDI device. There is no mention of MIDI function in the datasheet (General MIDI chart, etc), but there is this:

    Further Description VS1063a is a pin-compatible alternative for VLSI Solution’s VS1053. It has all the functionality of VS1053 (except MP1 and MIDI decoding) and many new features, particularly MP3 and Ogg Vorbis recording.

    So…great chip, but no MIDI functionality despite the byline.

  • Can this be soldered to an MP3 Trigger board to replace the fried chip? The failure was my fault :(

  • Any chance of these coming back in stock soon?

  • This chip is known to have several issues, please look for patches at http://www.vlsi.fi/en/support/software/vs10xxpatches.html before using it

  • Last bullet point seems to have a typo (“soft- ware”)

  • Wow that’s cheap! This chip is supposed to be the vs1053 on steroids, but half the price? Now how about a breakout board? (Or just sell me the 1053 board without the chip on it for $20 less, and I’ll solder it myself).

    • Where does the price difference come from?

      • From my understanding the other VS10xx ICs have a recommended retail price of $20 (set by VSLI?), but sparkfun gets them for alot cheaper, this is why the breakouts were also $20. They must have lowered that for these chips..
