Hardware merge

For the first time all components sit together on a breadboard (well actually 2 because the decoder board is so wide). And yes, things still work – UART, SDHC reading and decoder tests. Code wise things are also looking good. There’s still lots to do, but seeing less than 8kB FLASH and 850 byte RAM is used so far (without the FLAC patch) my current concern is speed. Doing a directory listing takes much longer than expected. Slow is normal at this stage (no 512 byte sector reading, dumping via ‘slow’ UART), but still.

The next step will be attempting to play a couple of songs, starting with a low bitrate MP3 up to a 50MB FLAC file. In the meantime, enjoy these two shots;
