FM Receiver with Propeller

Today I received by the evening post a package containing a little break-out board containing an RDA5807SS FM receiver chip.  This is a very cute little module that implements a complete FM sterero receiver.

The device sports a standard 3.5mm stereo audio jack on the top.

Hookup is completely trivial with only I2C SDA/SCL pins, VDD/VSS power connections.  Four wires and you are done.  Could not be simpler, no soldering involved unless you want to.

Fun little project, if you want immedicate success, give it a go!  I leave it playing in the background whilst I work on other programming projects.  The product information page at the Parallax site is here where you can find all the documentation as well.
