Mini Audio Signal Generator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Mini Audio Signal Generator

A small audio test generator is very useful for quickly tracing a signal through an audio unit. Its main purpose is speed rather than refinement. A single sine-wave signal of about 1 kHz is normally all that is needed: distortion is not terribly important. It is, however, important that the… Read more »

Logic Probe With Sound

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Logic Probe With Sound

This logic probe can be selected to operate on TTL or CMOS logic levels, depending on switch S1. A string of resistors associated with switch S1 sets the threshold levels for a window comparator comprising IC1a and IC1b. Depending on whether the level applied to the probe is high or… Read more »

Test Beeper For Your Stereo

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Test Beeper For Your Stereo

The test beeper generates a sinusoidal signal with a frequency of 1,000 Hz, a common test frequency for audio amplifiers. It consists of a classical Wien-Bridge oscillator (also known as a Wien-Robinson oscillator). The network that determines the frequency consists here of a series connection of a resistor and capacitor… Read more »

SDR Soundcard Tester

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on SDR Soundcard Tester

The key to using a soundcard successfully in digital signal processing or digital radio applications lies principally in the characteristics of the soundcard itself. This applies in particular to SDR (software defi ned radio) programs that turn your PC into a top-class AM/SSB/CW receiver, assuming your soundcard cooperates. If you… Read more »

DCF77 Preamplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on DCF77 Preamplifier

A popular project among microcontroller aficionados is to build a radio-controlled clock. Tiny receiver boards are available, with a pre-adjusted ferrite antenna, that receive and demodulate the DCF77 time signal broadcast from Mainf lingen in Germany. DCF77 has a range of about 1,000 miles. All the microcontroller need do is… Read more »

Passive RIAA Preamplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Passive RIAA Preamplifier

There are two types of preamplifiers for magnetic phono cartridges. An example of the most common type is the one described in the March 2002 issue of SILICON CHIP. It has the RIAA equalisation network in the feedback loop. The second type was previously used in valve circuits which typically… Read more »

USB Powered Audio Power Amplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on USB Powered Audio Power Amplifier

This circuit of multimedia speakers for PCs has single-chip-based design, low-voltage power supply, compatibility with USB power, easy heat-sinking, low cost, high flexibility and wide temperature tolerance. At the heart of the circuit is IC TDA2822M. This IC is, in fact, mono-lithic type in 8-lead mini DIP package. It is… Read more »

7 Watt Audio Power Amplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 7 Watt Audio Power Amplifier

Small but powerful multipurpose amplifier This small amplifier is constructed around the TDA2003 IC, capable of delivering 4Wrms at 4ohms. The TDA 2003 has improved performance with the same pin configuration as the TDA 2002. The additional features of TDA 2002, very low number of external components, ease of assembly,… Read more »
