Re: can I get signal in DB from microphone using usb sound card?

I think you over think what I want to do ....

I just want to read the signal from the MIC and know how much DB is it

can I do this? or it's to complicated?

Thanks,

Re: can I get signal in DB from microphone using usb sound card?

It could be relative

and what do you need by this:
And do you want flat or weighted values?
I want the resault the be simller to the android app "Sound Meter" - so the code can be "trusted"
if I will ger 54.6 in the PI and 55 in the app - it's ok

Thanks ,

found it

Code: Select all

Re: read data from Arduino

One last question so I will be sure I understand (and avoid any other electric problems): when I use a I2C device that power from 3.3V the SDA\SCL lines will also work on 3.3V? so if my "Other side" can read i2c device only from 3.3V it will be OK?(like PI for example) in that case I won't need any ...

Re: read data from Arduino

it doesn't
no metter I look in all the PDF I have found - didn't say it have a 5V pullups

this is the device I have bought

https://www.adafruit.com/product/904


so you say maybe try to connet it using no pull-ups and 3.3V only?
meaning wire to wire , without any pull-ups\divider ?

Thanks ,
