Introduction
The aP23KWC8S USB Writer is designed to support Aplus aP23xxx series Voice chips. It is suitable
for:
-
aP23682
aP23341
aP23170
aP23085
( 682 sec, 2 I/O chip) – SOP8
( 341 sec, 2 I/O chip) – SOP8
( 170 sec, 2 I/O chip) – SOP8
( 085 sec, 2 I/O chip) – SOP8
This development system serves three main functions:
Compiler – to created a dp2 file from user’s Voice files
Writer – to program the dp2 file into the aP23xx chip
Copier – connect DC 5V adaptor for 1 to 1 programming
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.
The Copier is using the compiled .dp2 which loads to writer then disconnect the USB and connect the
DC 5V for 1pc. copying.

Installation
Hardware Installation
aP23KWC8S is a USB based writer programmer. It is intended to be used in Windows XP,Win7,Win8
computer.
Writer Board Connection
1) Connect USB cable from the writer board to the computer. The computer will display a new
hardware is found message. The installation will begin automatically.
2) If there are too many USB devices are connected to your computer at the same time, the current
supply from USB may not be sufficient to support the writer board.

Example for Compiler :
a. Select the IC body is aP23341(8Pin).
b. Select Key Mode to be our trigger mode.
c. Select the voice output is PWM.
d. Click Add-Wav to pick your required folder.
e. After confirming the folder, click the button.

g. Show all your required .wav files. Double click .wav files you required in f, they will be showed in g.
g-1. 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: aP23341(8Pin) to aP23682
2).Compressed the wav files to decrease the memory size. ex: from PCM16 to PCM8.
3).Delete some required voice files.
h. If wav file is too big, we can choose compressing files to decrease their sizes.
(UALW compress wav file to 8bits, PCM8 compress wav file to 8bits, ADPCM compress wav 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.
i. If you want to add mute voice, click Silence button to set the silence time.
j. If need silence 20ms. ,key in 20 (unit ms) then click OK button.
