This partial kits does not include the power supply components. Without the power supply, the MP3 player must be powered by a regulated 5 volt power supply, using these pads:
The STA013 MP3 decoder chip and CS4334 DAC are surface mount ICs that have 50 mil (1.27 mm) lead spacing parts, which are low density pin spacing, but can still be quite a challenge for anyone without some experience soldering surface mount components. If you're not comfortable soldering these surface mount parts, please consider the fully assembled board.
These parts come packaged in 6 bags, corresponding to the assembly steps for the main portion of the player, which are included in one larger bag as shown.
There is also a version of this kit that includes the parts for the on-board power supply. The board as built with this kit will require an external power supply that can provide the 5 volt regulated supplies needed by the board.
