12V Fluorescent Light Inverter

This is a low voltage 12V fluorescent inverter for powering two 20W or single 40W fluorescent tube. It’s a circuit you can put together from junk box components and is a very simple to build. The transformer is hand-wound on a ferrite rod from an old transistor radio and the winding wire can be salvaged […]

500W Modified Sine Wave Inverter

Here is a simple but powerful, stable and efficient schematic diagram for a 500W modified sine wave inverter circuit. Originally I used a 555 timer and a CD4017 decade counter to produce the modified sine wave, but then I thought a simple PIC micro controller with its internal clock would produce a stable 50Hz/60Hz frequency […]

Repairing Switching Power Supply

Modern power supplies are known as “switching regulator power supplies.” In most switching supplies, the 110 volt AC input is first rectified by two diodes and filtered by a pair of capacitors. This creates two high- voltage sources; one positive and the other negative. A pair of transistors is then used to switch these high […]

3.3V and 5V Power Supply

I normally use a USB port as power supply for my projects but some ICs need 3.3V instead of 5V. Therefore I decided to build this small dual power supply. Power supply uses two low dropout voltage regulators that provide up to 800mA of output current and come in TO-220 package. LD1117V33 is used for […]

USB Battery Pack

This project is able to power a USB device using two standard AA batteries and an electronics circuit. The circuit is based on LT1073 DC/DC converter to convert the 3V to 5V needed by USB. In that way it can power the USB device on the go. Built in batteries in gadgets have some advantages: […]

Solar Charger for USB Devices

As the world around us becomes more and more environmentally conscious, alternative energies such as solar power are becoming more and more popular. The following solar charger is very simple and inexpensive to build and could be used to charge cell phones, tablets and other USB devices. 6V solar panel could be easily salvaged from […]

LM386 Utility Amplifier

It’s always handy to have a little amp kicking around to trace audio signals, test mics, CD tape and TV audio outputs. You know, something that doesn’t weigh a lot and isn’t clumsy. There are tons of uses for this little circuit. There are a couple of versions of this amplifier chip. Both are 8 […]

Battery Powered Amplifier

This is battery powered amplifier based on LM386 chip and has an input buffer that is feeding the inverting input. The input buffer helps to retain treble details going into the LM386 chip. It is powered from a single 9V battery. The architecture of the amplifier has been updated with an input buffer feeding the […]

68W LM3886 Amplifier

LM3886 is a high-fidelity audio power amplifier IC capable of delivering 68W of continuous power using 4 Ohm speakers. LM3886 provides excellent S/N ratio of 92dB and above as well as extremely low total harmonic distortion over the audio spectrum. LM3886 comes equipped with Self Peak Instantaneous Temperature Protection Circuitry (SPiKE) that makes it a […]

60W Power Amplifier

This is a simple and low cost 60W power amplifier. The optimal supply voltage is around 50V, but this amp can work from 30 to 60V. The maximum input voltage is around 0.8 – 1V. As you can see, in this design the components have a big tolerance, so you can build it with almost […]
