The DABBoard got an improved layout with added functionality, while keeping prices and footprint low. It is now available in our shop.
New features are:
- I2S full
digital audio data transmission to the Raspberry Pi is now supported
by the hardware, but a driver has to be added manually to the Linux
kernel to support it.
- The antenna and
L/R audio out are now accessible as pins on the board.
It is now possible to solder
a flash memory chip to the board and have the Si468x load its
firmware from that chip.
Silkscreen is printed on the
board to show the part numbers.
We have released a flexible API as a terminal tool to use the Si468x as a DAB processor in your projects.
The radio_cli named tool has the Si468x firmware compiled in. It allows control of all the main functions of the Si468x in a simple way. The tool saves you from worrying about the low-level functions when using the Si468x.
Booting up the Si468x now becomes as simple as running
and tuning to a station is simply
