What is the Microphone Sensor ?
A microphone sensor is an electronic device that converts sound waves into electrical signals. It is used to capture sound or audio and process it for various purposes such as recording, amplification, and transmission. Microphone sensors can be analog or digital and can be found in various form factors including built-in microphones in devices, standalone microphones, and microphone arrays. They are used in a variety of applications such as telecommunication, musical instruments, speech recognition, audio recording, and more.
Sound sensor breakout is a microphone sensor that recieves the environmental sound and generates a digital output signal. There is also a potentiometer on the board that allows you to sense clapping hand, horn sound, suddne and loud voices or environmental noise.
You will get the instantaneous sound signal without environmental noise. It is possible to use tihs breakout with Arduino and many other microcontrollers. The product comes with jumper cables to make wiring easier.
