The EZ-B v4, EZ-Robot Developer Kit, and IoTiny are excellent tools for building custom DIY robots or teaching old toys new tricks. Watch Overlord DJ Sures and Professor E introduces a few robots he has made using the IoTiny and EZ-B v4 in this The Robot Program episode. Let's begin by showing what's in the box. The Robot Overlord DJ Sures and Professor E will be your guides throughout these tutorials. Have fun!
EZ-B v4 Port Summary
The EZ-B v4 has 24 Digital Ports and 8 Analog Ports. The Digital Ports are labeled D0 through D23. The ADC Analog Ports are labeled A0 through A7.
3 PIN (GVS) Connectors
Each port has three pins: GND (Ground), VCC, and Signal. The GND and VCC are for powering the device connected to the port. The Signal pin is connected to the EZ-B Microchip for reading or writing data from Digital or ADC. The GND and VCC pins are not connected to the Microchip; they are used only for powering the peripheral connected to the EZ-B v4.
For example, a servo has a three-wire plug that connects to one of the EZ-B Digital Ports. The wires of a servo connector are GND, VCC, and Signal. The GND and VCC provide power to the servo's motor and circuit. The Signal wire carries the information to tell the servo what position to move.
The EZ-Robot Camera connects to the EZ-B v4 with a 6-pin cable. Notches on the male connector match the EZ-B's female connector. This prevents the plug from connecting incorrectly. The camera connection is unique, making it easy to identify where to click. It is impossible to connect the camera cable to the wrong connector, as it only fits in the matching plug.
Connecting Servos & I/O
Much like your home theater speakers, the cables of the EZ-B and peripherals are color-coded. The BLACK cable on the peripheral (i.e., servo) will connect to match the BLACK side of the EZ-B connector.

EZ-B v4 Ports Overview
EZ-B v4 Rollout Video
Learn everything about EZ-B v4 in this detailed video, including E-01 EZ-Bv4 Main Board and E-15 EZ-Bv4 WiFi Board reference designs.
Unregulated Power I/O
As an EZ-B v4 Developer, you must know how the power pins work. This is because you will build a custom robot with custom power requirements.
The EZ-B v4 does not regulate the power on the I/O pins. If you provide 12v to the EZ-B v4, the I/O pins will output 12v. Of course, this will damage any +5v peripherals that you connect to the EZ-B v4 when using 12v. You must know how much power is being provided to the EZ-B v4 and what you connect to the I/O pins. For example, the EZ-Robot Servos do not like power above 7.4 volts, so we recommend using Rechargeable AA batteries in the provided holder. If you wish to use an alternate power source, please be aware of this message and select a voltage rating that works with your application.
*Note: The only ports that have regulated power are for the Camera, i2c, and UART #0 Expansion.
Learn Your Port Types
Working with digital means True (On) or False (Off). True means any voltage above 1 volt, and False means GND. There are 24 digital ports on the EZ-B v4 (D0 to D23)
Output is writing to a port: When a port has its digital value set to True, a +3.3 voltage will be outputted on that port. If the port has its digital value set to False, then the port will be GND.
Input is reading from a port: You can read the value of a specific port. This is how you can check for voltage, On or Off. Any voltage above GND (and below +5 volts) will be returned as True, and a short to GND will be returned as False.
Example peripherals for digital ports are Switches, Servos, Ultrasonic Distant Sensors, and Buttons.
ADC is short for Analog Digital Converter and is read-only (input only). This method reads voltages into the EZ-B Robot Controller. There are eight analog input ports on the EZ-B (A0 to A7).
Reading Relative Voltage: The returned value will be between 0-255 in 8-bit mode and 0-4095 in 12-bit mode. These values represent the input voltage on the specified port. The value will be relative to the input voltage, between 0 and 5 volts. Example in 8 bit mode: Value 0 = 0 Volts, Value 127 = 2.5 Volts, Value 255 = 5 Volts.
Reading Absolute Voltage: Returns the value in actual volts on the specified port.
Example peripherals for analog input are Sharp GP2 Analog Distance Sensors, Pressure Sensors, Light Sensors, Sound Sensors, Color Sensors, and reading voltages.
Serial (tx only)
Every digital port of the EZ-B Robot Controller can transmit serial data. Also, on the V4s, there are 3 UART ports for bi-directional buffered serial communication. Serial Communication is the process of sending data one bit at a time in a sequence. Serial communication is common with many peripherals because it allows commands to be transmitted over one wire. The transmission works similarly to Morse code.
The Sender and Receiver need to be configured for the baud rate (speed) in which the data will be transmitted. Common baud rate speeds are 300bps, 4800bps, 9600bps, 19200bps, 38400bps, 57600bps and 115200.
There are also three high-speed UART ports on the EZ-B v4, which allow transmit and receive abilities. The buffer size for input on the three high-speed UART ports is 5,000 Bytes.
Examples of peripherals for serial communication are LCD Screens, Motor Controllers, Servo Controllers, Computer Communication, Arduino Communication, iRobot Roomba, and more.
UART Serial (bi-directional)
The V4 UARTx ports connect to Serial TTL devices for input and output. Contrary to the digital port Serial Output, these peripherals will also receive data into an input buffer. The input buffer of each UART is 5,000 Bytes. There are 3 UARTs; the first is the hardware labeled port, second and third are digital pins. These UARTs are controlled using the UARTInit(), UARTWrite(), UARTRead() and UARTAvailable() commands. The speed of these UARTs can be any integer between 1 and 3750000 bps.
UART0 TX: Expansion Connector
UART0 RX: Expansion Connector
UART1 TX: D5
UART1 RX: D6
UART2 TX: D18
UART2 RX: D19
The I2C is also referred to as the "Two Wire Interface." There are three I2C connectors on the EZ-B v4. I2C is a communication method invented by Philips to communicate with peripherals. The I2C uses two wires for communication, Serial Data Line (SDL) and Serial Clock Line (SCL).
I2C devices can be chained together in a network formation. Each device is given a unique address. The EZ-B v4 has three I2C headers, which provide both signal wires and +3.3v power.
Examples of peripherals for I2C communication are LCD Screens, I2C enabled Servos, BlinkM Multicolor LEDs, and more.

What I did was, on the Bottom Board I soldered wires on the pads marked speaker.
Then connect that to a speaker or if you need it louder to a small amplifier.
