a) Obsolete. Introduced about 1985 but dropped
almost the same year.
I still have a preliminary datasheet.
b) its a formant-synthesizer: the original
devellopment system from would be
necessary to code speech for it.
Thank you. What I really liked about the original part was the i2c bus,
since that is the bus system of choice in my bot anyways, used by the
face LED's, gyro, and accelerometers. I found some leftovers for over
$60 a piece, which is out of the question.
Do speakjet it is as soon as I can free up some more pins ;-)
Seems like there might be some ucontrollers - P87LPC760 or similar - that
have i2c interface and UART. UART controls the speakjet. A little more to
write the code but it seems fairly straightforward.
Take a look at the winbond chips
online demo here
http://www.winbond.com/e-winbondhtm/partner/b_2_a_5_f.htm some example
You can buy a pre-made module from Devontech
The winbond chipcorder do record , playback of voice
Thanks for the links. Unfortunatly, the speech samples do not work using
Firefox, so I'll have to check them out later.
I saw the Devontech board and it may be an alternative. I did get some
offers on the Philips chip, but it was at least three times as expensive
as I expected.
Back to the drawing board... .
PS: voice recording is no alternative. The speech module will help the
robot communicate error conditions and measurements, all in all several
hundred different messages that are created at run-time.
