Circuite Design

Function Description schematic
Power supply * VCC voltage range (3.3 ~ 4.2V). When using an external power supply, use AMS1117 is converted to 3.3V; when powered by lithium batteries, lithium guarantee voltage between 3.3V ~ 4.2V;
  • Lithium battery-powered, no voltage is converted to 3.3V. Because the general lithium battery voltage of 4.2V or 3.6V;
  • Recommendations Bluetooth module supply terminal in parallel with the capacitor 104 470uf suppress interference.
  • As shown above connections, the module can be a mobile phone or a computer identified as "BK8000L" power, the connection without password authentication.
LRG three wires
EB8000 LBG wiring.png
EB8000 LBG wiring earbug.png
  • Not recommandded to use three wires amplifier board for example PAM8403 amp board due the common GND, will have current noise. But if the circuits can go well with the problem it still can work
  • When a three-wire, 220uf capacitance necessary to eliminate noise and improve sound quality;
  • When using three lines, note application mode;
  • The default setting maximum sound module;
  • Three-wire method can only drive 3.5mm eadphones.
  • Output to 3.5mm headphones or 3.5mm input soundbox
Differential four wires
EB8000 Differential.jpg
Differential four wires:
  • Auto enable on CTRL pin
  • when 5V VCC, speaker can use 4ohm|3W
  • C21, C22 keep close to HT6872;
  • Module control chip mute welding R22, no welding R21. No control, welding R21, no welding R22.
  • Recommendations for soldering of R21, no welding R22, reason is when play a song and in the silent phase, a module considered to be muted, it will shut off HT6872 and cause discontinuities stopped play.

Serial port
Serial port EB8000.jpg
* would be best to use MAX3232 (5V-3.3V) capacitance 0.1uf;
* Note that the baud rate, 9600, N, 8,1;
* Note instruction bottom line breaks;
* If the serial port connection is successful, the module has "ON" output when power up.
Status LED
EB8000 LEDs.png
* Before pairing, the two LEDs will blink in turns
  • After pairing, LED1 off, LED2 blink
MIC input
EB8000 MIC input.jpg
* Be aware of the MIC sensitivity: -38db +/- 2db, DC2V, normally MIC has polarity
  • IF the mic has too low volume output, consider the polarity
AUX input

Design Note

  1. Module application process, please pay attention to avoid the impact of interference sources amplifier, boost lines, etc. on the module, the module power supply circuit to avoid the formation of a series circuit with the power circuit unit, in order to improve overall SNR.
  2. About wireless Bluetooth environment, including Bluetooth wireless signals are greatly affected by the surrounding environment, such as trees, metal and other obstructions the wireless signal will have some absorption, so in practical applications, distance data transmission by certain influences.
  3. Since Bluetooth module should be supporting existing systems, placed in the housing. Since the metal casing of the radio frequency signals are shielded effect. It is not recommended to be installed in a metal housing.
  4. PCB layout: the antenna is part of the Bluetooth module PCB antenna, since the metal will weaken the function of the antenna, in layout to the module when the module antenna to the following non-paved and traces, if hollowed out better.
  5. Amplifier LM386, PAM8403, etc need isolated ground, otherwise will have a lot noise. Recomandded HT6782
