  • This VS1033d MP3 decoder can’t play properly unless you’ve got the TEST pin tied high. This is indicated in the VS1033 datasheet on page 14 (“Reserved for test, connect to IOVDD”) and on the connection diagram on page 16. The engineers at VLSI pointed it out to us when we contacted them about our issues with this board.
    We have been able to get the board to work when we create a solderblob that connects TEST pin 32 to CVDD3 pin 31. Make sure you’ve got a fine tipped soldering iron for the job!

  • This board is great, but it’s important to know that the RNG (ring) and TIP are mislabelled as RSH (ring shunt) and TSH (tip shunt), respectively.

No public wish lists :(
