Developers at Nanomesher have created a new Raspberry Pi audio board called the NanoSound which is being created to provide users withan all-in-one hi-fi add-on which provides DAC, OLED Display, Power Switch, Control Buttons and Infrared Remote Control.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Raspberry Pi NanoSound add-on board which has taken to Kickstarter this week to raise the required funds it needs to make the jump into production.
• Texas Instruments PCM5122 DAC (24bit Resolution & 384khz Sampling Rate)
• Power switch (using same design as our Pi Switch product)
• 6 GPIO buttons for Media Control
• Infrared receiver and remote control
• 1.3″ OLED display with multi-language support
NanoSound is fully customizable and programmable! we take full advantage of the Raspberry Pi’s open architecture.
• The 6 buttons are simple GPIO buttons. Python source code will be provided to read button events.
• The IR receiver and control is LIRC compatible. Lircd.conf will be provided to read button input.
• The 1.3″ OLED display is using i2c. The python display driver code is open sourced.
• The onboard on/off switch uses the same design and software as our first kickstarter project. It has an attiny85 onboard and is open sourced.
NanoSound is a Raspberry Pi audio add-on board for audiophiles. While it works out of the box running volumio & kodi, it is designed to be fully customizable and configurable by taking advantage of Raspberry Pi. Yes, it works out of the box with Volumio & Kodi. A pre-configured Volumio & Kodi image will be available for download. Just plug NanoSound onto the Raspberry Pi, assemble the included mounting screws, insert the SD card and it’s done!
