I want to connect Adafruit PAM8302A amplifier to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

What I need? How to do this?


If you scroll down that page you linked to, in the learn section there a quite a few projects that use that board with the raspberry pi. One of them includes these instructions:

PAM8302 Audio Amplifier:

GPIO #1 (3V) on the Pi connects to VIN on the PAM8302. GPIO #9 connects to GND on the PAM8302. The +Postive and -Negative connections are wired to the A+ and A- on the PAM8302.

The Audio jack plugs into the audio port on the Pi.

Looking through some of the others should be helpful too.

  • What are the wires? – Minecon724 Jan 25 at 17:45
  • @Minecon724 What wires? And have you read the resource that T.M. links to above? – Dirk Jan 25 at 19:20
  • Yes, I've fully read – Minecon724 Jan 25 at 20:07

    @Minecon724 Then you need to improve your question to be a lot more specific. I've linked to one set of instructions that answers your question, and showed you where to find more. Please see how to ask a good question: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask and update your question above. Otherwise this should be closed. – T. M. Jan 25 at 20:46
  • "the wires" are lengths of conductive material, usually copper, encased in a plastic insulation material. A small amount of each end of such wire has the insulation stripped, and the exposed copper is connected to the appropriate spot, using an appropriate connector - hope this clears up what wire is – Jaromanda X Jan 25 at 23:07
