Introduction
The aP23KW16S USB Writer is designed to support Aplus aP23xxx series Voice chips. It is suitable for:
-
aP23682
aP23341
aP23170
aP23085
( 682 sec, 4 I/O chip) – SOP16
( 341 sec, 4 I/O chip) – SOP16
( 170 sec, 4 I/O chip) – SOP16
( 085 sec, 4 I/O chip) – SOP16
This development system serves two main functions:
Compiler – to created a dp2 file from user’s Voice files
Writer – to program the dp2 file into the aP23xx chip
The Compiler is used to combine the edited voice files into the chip to form the desired Voice Group and
to define the playback functions of each Voice Group by selecting different Options and Trigger Modes
of each individual Voice Group.
The Writer is used to program the voice data into the aP23xx devices that resulted from the Compiler
Function. A Writer Board connected to the PC via USB port is required.

g. If wave file is too big, we can choose compressing files to decrease their sizes.
( UALW compress wave file to 8bits, PCM8 compress wave file to 8bits, ADPCM compress wave file
to 4bits )
*** Please note if your original voice is 16bit wav file which need to be compressed to 8 bit, we
suggest you choose ULAW would be better.
h. Show all your required .wav files. Double click .wav files you required in f, they will be showed in h.
i. It will show the memory size you has been used. ( Please note the data size you loaded can’t exceed the
body’s memory )
***Please note the data size you loaded can’t exceed the body’s memory. If so, there are some ways to
solve this problem :
1).Change it to a bigger memory size body. ex: aP89341K to aP89682K
2).Compressed the wav files to decrease the memory size. ex: from PCM16 to PCM8.
3).Delete some required voice files.
j. Select the signal timing. ( 16ms or 65us )
k. When power on, immediately play SW0 one time.
l. Set volume control function.( if not select means do not need to use the volume level control function)
m. Volume Warp : Volume level increase to the max then begin from the level 1.
*Select disable :
When volume is adjusted to the top, use M1 to decrease the volume.
When volume is adjusted to the ground, use M0 to increase the volume
*Select enable :
When volume is adjusted to the top, it will restart from level 1.
When volume is adjusted to the ground, it will restart from level 16.
