Using the ESP32 with SPH0645 Micophone (I2S)

Postby DaTebe » Tue Mar 13, 2018 3:06 pm

Hello, everyone,

I have an ESP32 (Himalaya Matrix Core: ... -DEV-Board). I would like to use the SPH0645 ( ... t/overview) via I2S to measure the volume in the environment.
Unfortunately I'm totally lost, because the documentation is not really meaningful. I would like to do the exact same thing as described here with the Feather M0: ... g-and-test

Were do I need to start? Where are the I2S pins on my board? How to use the library in the example in my environment? Can I use the library with an ESP32?

You'll notice. I'm totally lost right now.

Any help would be really great!
Many thanks in advance!

Did you made some progress? I'm totally lost too.
I'm using the Adafruit Feather Huzzah Esp32 with the I2S SPH0645 microphone, but I can't make it work.
Any ideas? Someone can give me a hand?

Maybe a little late, but since this thread showed up in search, the key information is in: ... s/i2s.html
with important notes on the mic in the comments here: ... microphone

The resulting sketch is something like:

Code: Select all

#include "driver/i2s.h"
#include "soc/i2s_reg.h"

#define BUFLEN 256

static const i2s_port_t i2s_num = I2S_NUM_0; // i2s port number

static const i2s_config_t i2s_config = {
     .mode = (i2s_mode_t)(I2S_MODE_MASTER | I2S_MODE_RX),
     .sample_rate = 22050,
     .bits_per_sample = I2S_BITS_PER_SAMPLE_32BIT,
     .channel_format = I2S_CHANNEL_FMT_RIGHT_LEFT,
     .communication_format = (i2s_comm_format_t)(I2S_COMM_FORMAT_I2S | I2S_COMM_FORMAT_I2S_MSB),
     .intr_alloc_flags = 0, // default interrupt priority
     .dma_buf_count = 8,
     .dma_buf_len = 64,
     .use_apll = false

static const i2s_pin_config_t pin_config = {
    .bck_io_num = 26,
    .ws_io_num = 25,
    .data_out_num = I2S_PIN_NO_CHANGE,
    .data_in_num = 22

void setup() { 
   pinMode(22, INPUT);
   i2s_driver_install(i2s_num, &i2s_config, 0, NULL);   //install and start i2s driver
   REG_SET_BIT(  I2S_TIMING_REG(i2s_num),BIT(9));   /*  #include "soc/i2s_reg.h"   I2S_NUM -> 0 or 1*/
   i2s_set_pin(i2s_num, &pin_config);

int32_t audio_buf[BUFLEN];

void loop() {
    int bytes_read = i2s_read_bytes(i2s_num, audio_buf, sizeof(audio_buf), 0);
    // have fun with your data
