Signal output

KAmodMIC_ELECTRET module has embedded amplifier, which can increase the signal from electret microphone hundredfold. Constant value of amplifier is a half of power supply voltage and signal amplitude depends on noise level in environment. On photo below is shown examples sinusoidal sound, which was received with using KAmodMIC_ELECTRET (power supply 3.3V).
