This Instructable will be about designing a music player from using various building blocks. You will understand the communication between the microcontroller, memory, computer, LCD display, RTC, IR remote, and the music file decoder. I will try my best to to teach you in a way so that you can design your own projects using the skills you learn, without blindly following instructions.
I know most of you will simply glance at this first page and maybe skim through the rest. This Instructable has 18 steps and 5 appendices, with about 90 files and pictures. I sincerely hope you explore all my efforts.
Every step will be accompanied by a demonstration of that particular building block working. The source code will be provided. I will post the debug output, pictures, screenshots, USB device and packet analysis, and logic analyzer waveforms. NOTE: if the images look too compressed, don’t worry, they are included inside my .ZIP files too.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
