Nov 21, 2017 · Arduino NEC IR remote control decoder After the decoding of an infrared remote control which uses RC5 protocol, now I’m going to decode a remote control uses NEC protocol (this example works with both NEC and extended NEC remote controls).
This is a sound and outputs module compatible with Loconet digital systems. You just need an Arduino UNO, a GCA185 Loconet shield, and an MP3 Shield from Elechouse. For arround 35$ you can have the same functionality of a Sound Director Module from Uhlenbrock (more than 100$) plus 16 outputs to manage illumination or whatever in your layout.
The VS1053 is a great MP3 decoder, it is capable of decoding Ogg Vorbis/MP3/AAC/WMA/MIDI audio and encoding IMA ADPCM and user-loadable Ogg Vorbis, can drive 30 ohm headphones with no additional power supply. This VS1053 MP3 Shield is designed based on VS1053B from VLSI.
