MP3 Player Shield: Designed for Arduinos

It’s now possible to easily convert your Arduino board into an MP3 player capable of not only decoding Ogg Vorbis/MP3/AAC/WMA/MIDI audio, but also encoding in IMA ADPCM and Ogg Vorbis thanks to the MP3 Player Shield. This shield decodes MP3 streams and distributes them to a 3.5 mm stereo headset socket and a 2-pin header on a 0.25 cm pitch (not fitted). This stream is conveyed via an I²C link – a data bus originally developed by Philips to facilitate communications between microprocessors and circuits.

MP3 Player Shield: New features

The MP3 Player Shield offers some notable improvements over the previous version: not only can you now decode numerous audio files, but you also have the possibility to store the files from an SD card thanks to a dedicated slot. Extracting and playing these files is now centralised on a single shield! So by using your Arduino board and this shield you can create an MP3 player on which you can store your best playlists saved on a removable memory card.
