Audio I/O

Audio Input Output

Adding sound to an electronics project is an ideal way for it to interact with people. You can use simple beeps to provide feedback or spice things up with some music to give a robot some personality.

Speakers are used to generate simple sounds or music and microphones enable sound waves to be translated back into electronic signals.
