Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:19 pm

Hi,

first of all I would like to thank you all for the good work and sharing knowledge!

My new Pi Zero W should serve as a music player. From my first research I thought I just molder a Toslink transmitter to the correct pins and configure Raspian... Poor research! (Btw: Why doesn't that work???)

But reading this thread gives me hope for a solution. Is this TinyTOSLINK available for Pi Zero W? The "wired" solution (like in http://abload.de/img/rev_b_pluse7oi5.jpg) suits the purpose, the perfect PCB is not necessary.

BNC would be as good.

Thank you very much and best regards
vylpi

Hi vylpi

Connecting a Toslink transmitter directly is not really possible, because you need a very accurate timing for the optical signal.
The Raspberry Pi has a Audio interface and you just need a sound processor which converts this to the optical signal.

If you buy my board it should fit onto the Pi Zero W like on a normal Pi B+ (because the header should be the same).
You just need to solder the header onto your Pi - if you want I can also include a header for you to solder.
