Replacement: BOB-08792. This product was retired because VLSI discontinued the VS1002. We recommend the VS1033 breakout but VLSI offers may other MP3 decoder ICs as well. This page is maintained for historical purposes only.
Description: The VS1002 MP3 IC from VLSI is a great little MP3 decoder. However, it takes some noticeable external circuitry to get it up and running. With this breakout board from SFE, you can get up and rocking out in an afternoon! Once you've gotten proof of concept on breadboard - layout your own PCB with the bare VS1002 IC.
