I"m not sure if anybody here will be interested in this but I thought I"d throw it out there to see if anybody bites.
I"ve just got back from Halford"s after purchasing a Philips DAB radio for £19.99 http://www.halfords.com/webapp.....yId_243051
Inside this radio is a Verona radio module from Frontier Silicon, the Verona appears to be a redesigned Venice 7 for anybody who"s aware of these radio modules and will run the same firmware as the Venice 7 but with a reduced footprint.
The PCB that the module is currently connected to is a simple PSU and amplifier, from this PCB I will be able to recover most of the parts needed to build a decent PSU for the Verona and the rest of the parts I have laying around anyway.
This is the Verona pinout in serial control mode
3.3V 2 1 1.2V
0V 4 3 Audio Left
0V 6 5 Audio Right
CS 8 7 SCK
SI 10 9 SO
RESET 12 11 SPDIF
0V 14 13 -
- 16 15 RX
- 18 17 TX
- 20 19 -
0V 22 21 -
- 24 23 -
- 26 25 - As you can see, the hardware side of things is easy enough. It"s the software side of things that will have me struggling, does anybody fancy helping me out with this? I can provide a list of commands and even a windows program that will control this module if anybody is interested in this project.
