One of the reasons could be that 2 years ago (when this thread was started) the STA013 was attainable in the US, while VS1011 wasn’t. Currently among hobby projects, I think, it’s 50/50 between STA013 and VS1011.
Right now I’m looking for MP3 decoder chip myself, and I’m leaning towards VS1011e.
Right... Now the available part from ST is STA015, which is quite the same as the STA013 but doesn't need a batch file to be downloaded to the ASIC before configuring it.
What high performance MP3 codec chip can I use in a design apart from VS1001 and STA015?
I can't believe there aren't any other chips in the world... What chips do big companies use in their designs? I know about a Texas Instruments DSP but I guess that is a really difficult part to start development with.
What any other chips do you sugest?
Any reference design of MP3 player? I have started one myself, if anybody needs information just contact me.
Libmad is a C mpeg audio decoder. You can det it from sourceforge.net after searcing te software. It is cross-platform library, I used it for x86 & ARM9. Strong processor means 16-bit processor or higher.
As far as I see. All of the models ST01X and VSXXXX are decoders. Just few of them have some ADPCM coders. Only VS1103 have Ogg Vorbis coder! Can somebody point to a real MP3 coder please?
I need to record an audio signal 24x7 in a very good quality.
I have my own design with TMS320C6711 maybe I should write an MP3 coding algorithm. Does anybody has an idea what the DSP load could be?
