Developers and hobbyists that enjoy creating projects using the BeagleBone and BB Black might like this new audio add-on board called the SoundsCape, that is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website.
The SoundsCape has been created by Simple Media Networks the networking technology provider and is a BeagleBone Cape that adds analog audio I/O and bluetooth I/O for limitless audio possibilities.
“Audio Codec – The included ADAU1361 codec from ADI includes Stereo Line Input, Stereo Line Output, and Headset I/O (stereo headphone out + mono mic in). Each output is supported with a 3.5mm stereo jack.
This Codec provides >98db SNR on both input and output. The codec includes a comprehensive mixer with analog volume controls. As an added feature, the codec on the SoundsCape is compatible with Beaglebone systems using the LCD display interface (e.g. official BeagleBone LCD capes).
BlueTooth – In addition the cape includes a Bluetooth 4.0 Interface featuring the PAN1323 module from Panasonic (based on the TI CC2567). This hardware enables development of Bluetooth Streaming via A2DP, Headset via HFP, and controls via BLE. Firmware available on our website will demonstrate A2DP streaming.”
