Here’s a pic of Thomas’ completed project you can click on the image to enlarge it. Thomas Henry just doesn’t give up on an IC. Offset, amplitude, and frequency scales are pretty accurate. Arduino Prototype uses all standard through-hole components for easy construction, two of which are hidden underneath IC socket.

This is not a difficult project to build. Is it a piece of test equipment or a component for a synthesizer? Then this ifl8038 will work. An input attenuator is provided to scale this voltage to the desired range of control. The output waveforms can be both amplitude and frequency modulated. This is hardly a surprise generagor the has always had backing it a datasheet that puts it in the situation of having to crank out a modest frequency range while providing a certain more-than-warm glow to funcion the engineer or technician warm throughout the winter.

The 8038 Audio Generator Project

Repeat the entire sequence a couple times to lock in all trimmers as desired. R10 sets the maximum frequency and R23 sets the minimum frequency.

Turn R25 and R26 to their lowest settings. How to deal with it? The core of this circuit is IC L — which is basically a function generator chip capable of generating different waveforms. A small note here, the scale of the amplitude potentiometer can only have a decorative function or you can match it to only one function. This is easy to do with ears alone.


There is an option to control the parameters like frequency,duty cycle and distortion of these functions. Generator based on good old ICL integrated chip generator that gives pretty good shaped signals as for amateur purposes. Previous post Next post.

R1, Symmetry Trim sets the symmetry of the waveforms above Hz or so. Adjust R23 Min to give 20 Hz. I’d say your best bet for the is BGMicro a very cool little outfit that supplies all kinds of spiffy stuff for this obsession of ours.

Function Generator Circuit using ICL – Gadgetronicx

It is a very useful bench test equipment for testing and finding out the frequency of various devices with unknown frequency such as oscillators, radio receivers, transmitters, function generators, crystals, etc.

Frequency may be set with a counter, though I personally used an oscilloscope when I had it on funcction bench as my counter has been defunct for some time. This publication is available for preview and purchase at Lulu. Go back and forth between these two pots until you get good symmetry at the low and high ends. functoin

It features sine, triangle and square wave outputs. Notify of all new follow-up comments Notify of new replies to all my comments. This signal is fed to the meter, the AVR input pin accepts such signals. Shielding, temperature drift Whole electronic circuit is protected by a tin to minimize the impact of the electromagnetic field of a transformer and power lines.

This approach turns the audio generator into a handy portable device you can take out to the field or to gemerator gig!

Go back and forth between these to pots to arrive at functin solid 20 Hz to 20 KHz range. You can control lights, fans, AC system, computer, printer, amplifier, robots, garage door, security systems, motor-driven funftion, motorized window blinds, door locks, sprinklers, motorized projection screens and anything else you can think of.


Turn R25 Coarse and R26 Fine to their highest settings. Audio oscillator circuit Simple function generator circuit Digital thermometer circuit Capacitance meter using LM Frequency to voltage converter using LM Latest fuhction by Frank Donald see all. On this page you will find complete plans for the function generator – a schematic, a PCB layout, and plans for a nice, spiffy case to put it in. The meter is a perfect addition to any power supply, battery chargers and other generahor projects where voltage and current must be monitored.

ICL chip changes genetator oscillation frequency depending on the temperature, so when you turn on the generator, wait approximately two minutes until all the elements get heated to they operating temperature and then fine-tune the frequency. After stabilize, the frequency can change a bit ICL chip faultbut it should not change over time. The panel decal can be made from the panel document provided below, and Thomas has also supplied a drilling guide for it, which can also be downloaded.

After that, Thomas took that basic circuit and created this much improved and superior design. Even though the marks on Thomas’ panel design are only approximations to help find the ballpark, a better quality coarse pot will put you closer to those marks. As it turns out, what the needed was a good change of diet.

The calibration is more or less an “around gneerator horn” affair – one has to go back and forth a few times between trimpots before everything is set. The frequency of the signal can be modified from 0.

Whether it’s an XR, an SN, or even the humble CD, he seems to always find some way to make that IC gennerator up more than the datasheet even implies.
