Adding quality audio to an electronic project is surprisingly difficult. Here is a shield for Arduino Microcontroller Boards that solves this problem. It can play up to 22KHz, 12bit uncompressed audio files of any length. It's low cost, available as an easy-to-make kit. It has an onboard DAC, filter and op-amp for high quality output. Audio files are read off of an SD/MMC card, which are available at nearly any store. Volume can be controlled with the onboard thumbwheel potentiometer

  • Files are read off of a FAT16/FAT32-formatted SD/MMC card
