1  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Noise on Due Dac on: September 06, 2013, 09:22:06 am
I couldn't figure out how to get rid of the noise, so I found a product from RuggedCircuits called RuggedAudio that I use.  http://www.ruggedcircuits.com/html/rugged_audio_shield.html

This shield wasn't specifically designed for the Due, so to use it I
* cut traces 13, 12, 11
* solder in the SPI header on the card
* remove the card to flash the Due

I use a SanDisk SD card.
I scale the audio to 12 bit

http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=36498#p96024 (instructions to do this in audacity are in one of the posts)

Because of the 12 bit audio there is some static noise, but this solution has been acceptable for me.

I've tried powering the board using both the USB and a 9V battery and using a star topology for ground, but the noise is still present.  I haven't tried decoupling each module's power yet, but I'll try that next.

What you've explained makes a lot of sense.  I used the SPI header to connect to a breakout board and it works just fine.  Thanks!

Reads on an SD card can be heard through the Dac.

Arduino Due
AdaFruit Micro-SD Breakout Board (Board -> SPI and Pin 10)
AdaFruit MAX98306 Amplifier (Board -> DAC0, GND, 3.3V)

Things I've tried to get rid of the noise.
1.  Redid wiring using Jameco connectors -> still noise.
2.  Bypass Amplifier to externally amplified speakers -> still noise.
3.  Tried Dac0 and Dac1 -> noise on both.

I've attached a picture of the wiring.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
5  Products / Arduino Due / 5V on SPI on: February 18, 2013, 08:13:58 pm
I just bought a Due board and am really impressed.  I'm very new to electronics and I'm still trying to understand all of the 3.3V and 5V differences and ramifications.

I'm a little confused about the SPI header.  If the MOSI, MISO, and SCK pins can only handle 3.3V why does the SPI supply 5V?
6  Products / Arduino Due / IDE 1.5.2 Crashes on Startup on: February 11, 2013, 06:39:50 pm
I ordered a Due today, and decided to take a look at the IDE.  I downloaded the 1.5.2 version onto a fresh XP machine along with JDK 7.  The IDE crashes after showing the splash screen.  All other crash reports were on version 1.5.1 or 1.5.1r2 and don't resolve this problem.

Are there any log files that might point me to the problem?
