Thing #19

Today’s project was to coax sound from an ancient AY-3-8910 sound synthesizer chip. This chip was used in many vintage arcade machines, pinball games, and a few home computers. The one that I found was still in the original Radio Shack packaging, with the datasheet included, so there was a pretty good chance it still worked after all these years.

AY-3-8910 and Basic Stamp

I hooked it up to my Basic Stamp and just couldn’t get it to utter a peep. I’ll try it again with the Arduino, once I learn it better.
