KaraOkay Microphone Amplifier

20150723161807_project-61-main

Here is an all-analog, all-through-hole, cheap & cheerful preamplifier for that perennial problem of getting the microphone amplification just right, which is a challenge not only with the faithful reproduction of lead vocals during concerts and recordings, but also with campfire and karaoke-ish performances specially when the beer takes hold.

6EM7 Single-Ended Triode (SET) Vertical Amplifier

DIY-6EM7-SET-Vertical-Amplifier

by Matt Renaud:

What really drove me to build this 6EM7 amp was an idea about amplifier layout. Looking back at most of my tube designs, and most of those on the internet, revealed a very typical pattern. Amplifiers tended to be flat chassis with tubes and transformers above and electronics below. From a historical perspective this makes perfect sense. Metal chassis were built this way to facilitate packaging and assembly. When people started to make tube amplifiers again, they just removed the upper case and built in the same way.

by elektormagazine.com:

The PAM8905 is a new audio amp chip from Diodes Incorporated measuring just 1.5 x 2.0 mm. The design operates in class D mode, achieving a total harmonic distortion of 1% (plus noise) and delivering a maximum of 1.9 W into 8 ohm using a power supply in the range between 2.8 V to 5.2 V. The PAM8905 features an integrated boost converter powering the output stage to achieve the rated output power and maintaining volume with falling battery voltage. The boost converter is a fully synchronous design, ensuring a low external component count and high efficiency.

A signal amplifier module for HF

Marcus Jenkins blogged about his radio frequency amplifier project:

In building QRP HF radios, having an RF signal level amplifier building block is handy. You want 50 Ohm output impedance, some reasonable gain, supply voltage of the usual 10-14V and ease of building using standard parts from your parts bin. Some searching around the interwebs came up with a good idea for circuit from Aaron Parks, KC8FQD, who did a YouTube video on a WWV receiver.

8-bit MCU with built-in 1 W Audio Amp

r201407_1_pic4

LAPIS Semiconductor has recently announced the development of a low power microcontroller that has an integrated 8-bit low power MCU core, speech synthesis circuit, highly efficient Class-D speaker amp, non-volatile memory and oscillator circuit on a single chip, making audio playback possible by simply wiring up a speaker.

The ML610Q304 has a typical audio power output of 450 mW operating at 3 V or 1 W at 5 V. The controller includes four 8-bit counters which can be combined to make two 16-bit timers, a three channel 10-bit A/D converter, a two channel SSIO, UART and I2C peripheral interfaces. The memory capacity of the ML610Q304 includes a 96 KB program flash, 2 KB data flash and 1 KB RAM. The dedicated hardware-based audio playback helps reduce CPU loading. Two suggested audio playback formats are 16 kHz 16-bit PCM and 16kHz HQ-ADPCM. The Class-D amp reduces current consumption during audio playback by approx. 40% compared to conventional solutions, making it a good choice for incorporation into mobile battery-powered devices. In recent years a growing number of electronic products are adding voice playback functionality, particularly battery-driven devices that require increased miniaturization and lower power consumption for longer operating life.
