I was wondering whether someone had any info on simple, cheap mpeg1
audio decoder chips out there, and in that case, where to get them...
You can find a data sheet at
I've been trying to find Layer 3 audio decoder
chips for a long time. From the responses I've
received, it appears that in order to be able
to purchase/use any of these chips a licensing
agreement is necessary. IOW, I can't just run
down to a chip retailer, purchase a chip, plop
it into a socket and have something useful.
Is this accurate? Is there an easy way around
