'[EE]: Voice Playback for "Novelty Toys"'

Hi Everyone,

One of my clients has suggested an idea to me that they wanted me to do a
bit of a feasibility study on.

He wants to produce a novelty toy that speaks. say 6 phrases, 2-4 seconds
each..

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I know that there
are Chip-On-Board solutions for this kind on thing, any pointers? Any ideas
of the costs and order quantities needed?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
Ash.

That's within range of a PIC with PWM output and external EEPROM for storing
directly digitized voice.  A halloween project of mine
(http://www.embedinc.com/pic/hal.htm) stores about 7 seconds of low quality
audio in a 16F876, so a single external EEPROM should be able to handle 12
to 24 seconds.

Cool idea, how about a link to the home desktop PC to update it
daily/weekly.  Kind of a phrase of the day to teach kids new languages.
However, having lived overseas, nothing will make a kid learn a foreign
language faster than when the other children they play with speak only that
language.  The parents speaking different languages does not always make a
difference as the kids just tune out mom or dad.  My two boys didn't even
speak english until they were 5 and 6 respectively.  Now that is all they
speak and know.   The learning curve for English was lightning fast once in
USA.
Regards,
Mike

Hi!!

Take a look at ISD and OKI chips.
Both have good analogue or digital voice/audio chips.

Hope it helped

Look in Nuts & Volts (June) under "Talking Stamps using the Quadravox
QV306M4-P" If you can do it with a stamp you can also do it with the PIC
chips. (Stamp uses a pic chip).

 Not quite the same thing, but, thanks to this list, I used an
ISD4004-08 in a product that's now starting to sell (my first consumer
product, after years and years of industrial products). Go to
http://www.independentliving.com/ , select PRODUCTS, then select BRAILLE
PRODUCTS (under Braille), then scroll down to BrailleMaster.  (Due to the
website using frames, I could not give a direct URL).

Anyway to get a copy of the software you used to create the sound files
for your halloween project. Free? Sell? How much? That would be neat to
set up this year and have different sounds depending on where the kids
were. Set up motion detectors around the property as they come up and on
the street as they pass by.

Try contacting a company like Mattel... they may clue you on on Asian
resources... there is also a trade journal by the name Asian Resources (I
think...) that had many listings for this type of thing.

I designed one product that had motion sensing, voice recording and motion
control.  The company had this taken overseas and had the motion control
and voice recording done on a single die.  Seems as if Asia is the place to
go for this stuff.

Not to be disloyal to PICs, but there are audio recording IC for just
such jobs as this.  I don't know part numbers but I know Radio Shack
used to sell them.  They store audio as analog voltages in EEPROM-like
cells.  There is no processor or A/D D/A needed.

P.S. Found a part number: ISD2560 and cousins sold by Jameco.

I tried to attach it and the doc file, but the list server bounced it back.
That means I have to put it on a web page someplace, which means anyone can
see it, which means I need to do it "right", which means I need to include
an install tree and installation instructions and things like message files,
which means the hassle factor just got raised to the level where it's never
going to get done.

http://www.isd.com , now part of Winbond (a supplier of nice 8051 flash variants
amoung many other things)

Quality of these things is appropriate for a toy. ;-)
