This is a very easy and fun to build project that will allow you to control up to eight external devices through your computer's parallel port. You may for instance control different appliances such as lamps, computers, printers, tv sets, radios, music systems, air conditioners, air fans, garden sprinklers and anything else you can think of, all through your computer. In the future versions you will be able to program at what time a particular device should be turned on or off. If you should have any suggestions for any additional features please let us know. This digital voltmeter is ideal to use for measuring the output voltage of your DC power supply. It includes a 3.5 Digit LED display with a negative voltage indicator. It measures DC voltages from 0.1 to 199.9V with a resolution of 0.1V. The voltmeter is based on single ICL7107 chip and may be fitted on a small 3cm x 7cm printed circuit board. The circuit should be supplied with a 5V voltage supply and consumes only around 25mA. Ammeter is a great addition to any Laboratory Power Supply as it will allow you measure the current consumption and help determine if there are any problems with the circuit that you are building or testing. This amper meter is capable of measuring the current consumption from 1mA up to 10A with selected 1mA, 10mA and 100mA resolutions, and consumes only about 25mA of current. The ammeter is based on single ICL7107 chip and 3.5 Digit seven segment LED display. Due to a relatively small number of components that the circuit is using it is possible to fit it on a small 3cm x 7cm printed circuit board. Here is the latest and greatly improved TX200 VFO/VCO FM transmitter. The most versatile transmitter to date that can be turned into high fidelity stereo PLL based 200mW FM transmitter. It is a perfect circuit for transmitting your music around the house and yard. TX200 uses only two coils; one in the oscillator and the other one in the 200mW VHF amplifier so it should be fairly easy for anyone to build. New replacements for hard to find varicap diodes. These variable capacitance diodes change its capacitance as voltage is applied to them. They are perfect for tuning the frequency of PLL based FM transmitters, VCO FM Transmitters, FM / VHF receivers, TV tuners, etc. MV2105 - 2-16pF varicap diode replacement for BB105 and BB205 varicap diodes.MV2109 - 2-36pF varicap diode replacement for BB109, BB209 and BB405 varicap diodes.MV104 - 2-42pF DUAL varicap diode replacement for KV1310, BB104, BB204 and BB304 varicap diodes. Please refer to TX200 FM transmitter page to see examples on how you can implement varicap diodes in your own projects http://electronics-diy.com/tx200.php Finding a "good" LC Meter (inductance / capacitance meter) that would accurately measure all inductor types and coils is not an easy task. We have been searching for this type of LC meter for a long time now. We have been considering many commercial LC meter versions, but most of them were either too pricey or limited in measurement ranges. Finally, after studying different PIC16F84 based LC meter designs, a lot of testing and tweaking, we have came up with a unique design. The LC Meter is very compact and fairly simple to build. It's based on the PIC16F84A, LM311 ICs, and LCD module. The heart of the meter is a PIC16F84A IC that performs LC calculations, and LM311 IC that functions as a frequency generator. The LC Meter can measure surprisingly small inductances; starting from 10nH, whole uH range and mH up to 100mH. It also measures capacitances starting from 0.1pF up to 900nF. We will soon carry the following tunable RF coils that are perfect for precise frequency tuning of your transmitter. The magnet wire is halfway embedded within the plastic, providing excellent frequency stability. One of these coils have been tested in the TX200 transmitter as a substitution for an air coil and a variable capacitor. As a result the frequency stability was greatly improved. The coils are 7mm x 10mm and each comes with its own metal can, which may be removed. Tunable RF coils come in the following inductance ranges:2.5 turns 48 - 59nH (Red) 3.5 turns 65 - 79nH (Orange) 4.5 turns 90 - 109nH (Yellow)5.5 turns 109 - 132nH (Green) As of today we are starting the sale of the popular BA1404 IC which has integrated stereo encoder and FM transmitter, all in one package. We also carry 38KHz crystals so if you have been waiting to build your own stereo FM transmitter to transmit your music around the house, grab a schematic from the "Schematics" section and start building one today. For a fraction of price of the PLL transmitter kit you can build this small PLL module that will allow you to upgrade your existing FM transmitter to be; fully digitally tuned and to have rock solid frequency stability. The circuit is based on SAA1057 Philips frequency synthesizer, PIC16F84A microcontroller from PICMicro and 4MHz crystal.The PLL module works amazingly well and connection to the FM transmitter is very easy. In fact it requires only four components; two varicap diodes, 100K resistor and 1-10pF capacitor. I will post a tutorial on how to connect this PLL module to the TX200 transmitter once I find some more time. Here is another small tutorial on how you can test and use varicap diodes in the voltage controlled or PLL based FM oscillators. Build an inexpressive 0.1 - 199.9V LCD digital voltmeter that can be easily configured as amper and temperature meter. This module is based on a popular ICL7106 IC that can measure its own voltage supply and offers very low power consumption. This is the most attractive USB PIC Programmer that has great features in a compact design. It comes with a 40-pin ZIF (zero insertion force) socket, upgradeable firmware on PIC16F628 chip, ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming), easy to use GUI software, and can program wide range of PICMicro microcontrollers. Build an easy stepper motor driver that will allow you to precisely control a unipolar stepper motor through your computer's parallel port. The project comes with a program that has easy to use graphical interface, allows you to control the motor speed, direction in real-time and it also allows you to use and learn about different stepping methods, such as single stepping, high torque stepping and half stepping modes. Stepper motor controller also displays an animation that helps you visualize the current as it flows through individual coils. It is a wonderful tool to learn how stepper motors work. This stereo encoder is the perfect for those looking for a high quality stereo sound transmission at a low cost. This stereo encoder produces an excellent crystal clear stereo sound and very good channel separation that can match with many more expensive stereo encoders available on the market. This is all possible thanks to NJM2035 chip and 38KHz quartz crystal that controls the 19kHz pilot tone. You will never have to calibrate or re-adjust the circuit's frequency. This is a very easy and fun to build project that will allow you to control up to eight external devices through your computer's parallel port. You may for instance control different appliances such as lamps, computers, printers, tv sets, radios, music systems, air conditioners, air fans, garden sprinklers and anything else you can think of, all through your computer. The prescaler kit is a simple divide by 10 ECL circuit which can be used to extend the range of most PIC based frequency counters from 50 MHz up to 500 MHz. The kit uses surface mount components except for the 78L05 regulator. Calculates and displays L and C from oscillation frequency using reference components.This instrument requires two precision components: A precision capacitor and a precision inductor. You only need to start with one precision component, either the reference capacitor or the reference inductor, and using this meter, you can select or adjust the other precision component.In my case, I used a pretty high accuracy BK Precision inductance/capacitance meter and sorted through piles of inductors and capacitors to find those that had the ... This is 7-digit frequency meter measuring frequency from 10 Hz up to 1300 MHz. It is based on ideas of PIC16F84 based frequency meter.The measuring range is divided into two subranges: 10Hz - 25MHz and 25 MHz - 1300MHz. The decimal point is after MHz digit, but can be set at any position.It contains: * PIC 16F84 * 74HC137 (BCD -> 1 of 8 decoder) * SAB6456 VHF-UHF divider by 256 ... 400W Stereo Audio Amplifier based on the original Marshall Leach involvement, but has made some improvements. Regarding the power supply voltage to the +-75V. VC comparing the performance of the modified Leach 700W/2R on one common board of both channels, as well as protection and control circuits for the fans. Compared to the 700W version a bit different in wiring. Because some things in the 700W version is completely tightened to perfection. This is an easy to make power supply which has stable, clean and regulator 0-28V 6/8 Amp output voltage. By using two 2N3055 transistors we become more then 2 times the amount of amps then the power supply delivers, making it real though to brake ;). Although you could use this design to deliver 20 amps (with almost no modifications and with a proper transformer and a huge heat sink with a fan), I did not needed such much power. ...
