VMusic3 is a USB host and MP3/WMA player application module based on FTDI’s Vinculum II microcontroller. The default firmware of the VMusic3 supports audio playback and UART or SPI communication interfaces for integration into the target product. VMusic3 can be used to read MP3 and other audio format files from a USB flash disk, process the data and output the stereo audio through the line-out header and headphone jack.


The VMusic3 is a drop in replacement for the VMusic2 for the majority of VMusic2 applications. VMusic3 uses firmware called V2MSC which is similar to V2DAP (used in VDrive3) with an additional module for controlling MP3 playback. However, for a small number of applications that use SPI, some changes to the application software may be required.
