Description:
This tutorial is about mp3 mode of WTV020SD-16P module. With this simple circuit, you can play AD4 format music files. At the end of the article, you can see a video output of this simple and easy project.


The following schematic shows the MP3 mode of WTV020SD module. The schematic and its operation has been better explained on its product manual.

Mp3 mode

I followed the schematic but I connected only RESET, PREV and NEXT switches only for this experiment.

Steps:

a. Copy AD4 format music files on to your 2GB micro SD card.

b. Connect speaker, 3.3V regulator, switches and power supply. See the connection on the image given below.

I used a 5V and a 3.3V regulators for this project. I noticed that the 3.3V regulator heats up heavily when connected to a 9V battery, so I connected the battery to a 5V regulator first and then to the 3.3V regulator. I used a 2GB microSD card for this experiment.

If you use a 6V battery, you can connect the power supply straight to 3.3V regulator.

If this is your first experiment with WTV020SD-16P module, I strongly recommend you to read this article. The recommended article explains about the size of micro SD card and audio formats.

The project works with a 2GB microSD card and AD4 format music files.

DO NOT USE 5V POWER SUPPLY FOR THE MODULE. 5V will burn both your MicroSD card and WTV020SD module.

Please use only 3.3V power, either from Arduino or use 3.3V regulator chip.
