Demo Code

  • Only generate very simple sound for testing.
#define SOUNDOUT_PIN 9

void setup(void){
  //Set the sound out pin to output mode

void loop(void){
  //Generate sound by toggling the I/O pin High and Low
  //Generate a 1KHz tone. set the pin high for 500uS then
  //low for 500uS to make the period 1ms or 1KHz.

  //Set the pin high and delay for 1/2 a cycle of 1KHz, 500uS.

  //Set the pin low and delay for 1/2 a cycle of 1KHz, 500uS.
