LED Thermometer for Temperature Measurement

LED Thermometer – Temperature Measurement Circuit


The circuit given here is a precision LED bar graph Fahrenheit thermometer,which can be used as a temperature measurement circuit, build around IC LM 34 (sensor) and IC LM 3914 (bar graph driver). The circuit can be modified to read in degree Celsius by replacing sensor LM 34 with LM 35. Both are inter changeable. The circuit operates of a volt power supply.
To calibrate the circuit, you will need a voltmeter. Power the circuit . Ground the negative lead of the volt meter and connect the positive lead to pins 6 and 7 of IC LM 3914. Adjust R7 so the meter reads 3.345V as possible. Now connect the positive lead of the meter to pin 4 of IC LM 3914 and change R5 until the meter reads 2.545V. Disconnect power to the circuit and remove both IC’s from their holders. Check the value of R3 with an ohmmeter and remember that value. Connect the ohmmeter across R1 and set R1 to a value of exactly 3 times the value of R3. Reconnect both IC’s and the circuit is ready. Here the circuit is designed for home use and reads between 60 to 80 degree F.
If pin 9 of IC LM 3914 is left disconnected the display will be in dot mode and R8 must be 100 Ohm. If pin 9 is connected to 9 V display will be in bar mode.

Build a Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram

How to Build a Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram. This circuit offers the best of both worlds. It can be combined with a low input offset voltage and drift without degrading the overall system`s dynamic performance. 
 Low Noise And Drift Composite Amp Circuit Diagram

Compared to a standalone FET input operational amplifier, the composite amplifier circuit exhibits a 20-fold improvement in voltage offset and drift. In this circuit arrangement, A1 is a highspeed FET input op amp with a closed-loop gain of 100 (the source impedance was arbitrarily chosen to be 100 kfl). A2 is a Super Beta bipolar input op amp. It has good dc characteristics, biFET-level input bias current, and low noise. A2 monitors the voltage at the input of A1 and injects current to Al`s null pins. This forces A1 to have the input properties of a bipolar amplifier while maintaining its bandwidth and low-input-bias-current noise.

High Power Output Amplifier TDA7294

The famous SGS-THOMSON ST Microelectronics has introduced a Hi-Fi DMOS high-power amplifier circuit TDA7294, its sound great taste bile, which due to its internal circuit from input to output are field-effect devices, rounded sound Mild, delicate Rounuan.  However, with its assembly amplifier, only TDA7294 single-output power is only 70 W, BTL access law is 100 W from top to bottom, do not feel that power cushion. The author several tests, used to promote TDA7294-level, direct-drive one to four pairs of high-power transistor parallel, the output of strong currents, the power output of 400 W (mono), and the circuit is simple and no need to debug that can reliably work Basically, the IC has maintained a sound and performance.  Ruzuo The figure below shows, R6 for the feedback resistor, the author of the value in debugging 22 k Ω more appropriate, R6 also decided this circuit gain, the gain value will increase.  Quiescent current depends on the power of R7, R8, when its value…

Full Power Mobile Phone Jammer Circuit Diagram

Full Power Mobile Phone Jammer Circuit Diagram.To day if we are talking about expert Cell phone Jammers we are conversing about this schematic underneath. First off all you should be very very cautious how to use this apparatus. Its completely illegal and so the reason. I post this Circuit is only for educational and testing causes. This type of apparatus is being utilised by security for VIPS, particularly at their limousines to avoid blasting device initiating while the vehicle passes from the goal cell phone-bomb. Off course there are those who use it to make a antic or to make the persons crazy in the rectangle block you are. 
The power of the jammer is currently sufficient to do your thing, but certainly you can place a 30W linear power amp at the RF output and impede a much wider locality. So, Be pleasant individual with that and recall that there are people who may need desperately to obtain or make a call and one of them could be you! And if you can't oppose of functioning …
