Getting started with VMUSIC2

Remember when i told you a few words about a new revolutionary USB Module named VMUSIC2 ? The VMUSIC2 is a complete MP3 player module from FTDI, Inc. which makes it easy to integrate MP3 functionality in to your next microcontroller project. It has two interfaces: SPI or UART (serial)

This instructable will cover getting connected and controlling your VMUSIC2 module from hyperterminal. I recommend starting out this way because it will allow you to get familiar with the commands and get a feel for how it works before connecting it to your microcontroller. I will follow up with another instructable on controlling it from a microcontroller.

68HC000 Home Made Computer

You grab a Motorola 68HC000 32 bit mcu some knowledge you mix them together and you should get a 32-bit power single board computer. The chip is quite old but there are many chip makers still produce it.

he 68000 Single Board Computer features:

  • CPU: 68HC000 68-pin PLCC @8MHz,
  • Memory: SRAM 256kB (6281282), FLASH 256kB (29C010x2),
  • GPIO: 8-bit output port, 8-bit input port,
  • UART: 6850 9600 8n1,
  • RTC: DS12887,
  • Glue logic: DTACK, memory/io decoder, Xilink XC9572 CPLD,
  • Monitor program:  zBug V1.0 for 68000-Based Single Board Computer.
