Gainclone Power Amplifier

Making of Amplifier Gainclone from this list circuit schematic Gainclone Power Amplifier

Gainclone power amplifier

What is Gainclone Amplifier?

Gainclone was cloned from Gaincard amplifier, an amplifier commercial production 47Labs that cost thousands of dollars. Gaincard amplifier using integrated circuit production National LM3875.
In the end, every amplifier made with LM3875, LM 3876, LM3886, LM1875 even called the Gainclone. While many variations of the amplifier Gainclone. From the basic version through the use of buffers and regulated power supply.

LM3886 Gainclone Power Amplifier Schematic

LM3886 Gainclone Power Amplifier

Basically LM3886 has the dynamics and quality of bass best of the four, but the vocal quality and voice clarity worst. Not much we can do to improve vocal quality and clarity of the 3886's. For improving bass performance using this circuit Subwoofer Booster Circuit

LM1875 Gainclone Power Amplifier Schematic

LM1875 Gainclone Power Amplifier

Basically the LM1875 is the most excellent vocal and clarity of voice among the four. But its also the lowest. Wait, 30 watts may not be called low, especially when we are highly sensitive speakers, use the speaker crossover, but from my experience, there is always a feeling of lack of power when I used to use a smaller power amplifier. But I think overall ic LM 1875 is not the caliber of his older brothers.

LM 3875 3876 Gainclone Power Amplifier Schematic

LM 3875 3876 Gainclone Power Amplifier Schematic

3875 and 3876 was principally the same ic, only 3876 plus mute facility. Because the mute function has nothing to do with the quality of the sound, of course logic is clear, more complex circuits will only reduce the sound quality. At least it will complicate manufacture and increase the cost of components.

3875 clear voice, sweet vocals (especially when given FET front). For the quality of bass, we submit his affairs in the power supply.

Why Low Gain for Gainclone Power Amplifier?

The bigger the gain is greater distortion. But the greater the gain, the greater the power, the more detailed the better and control the bass so that it can better driving speaker. Here we choose a gain of about 18 to 20 times. Smaller than that, there could be instability / oscillation.

How Sound Quality?

It's the most important, what about the sound quality? I know this is the most anticipated reader, so I'm happy to explain that this amplifier sounds good once. Bass, treble, vocals, everything sounds detailed and natural. The most interesting thing is the quality of bass that resembles mosfet amplifier.

LM317 as a Voltage Stabilizer

LM317 as a Voltage Stabilizer circuit diagram

Priciple voltage stabilizer

PNP transistor can give to the same condenser with LM317: its output is connected to the condenser as well as the collector of the power transistor. It works so that the current flowing through R1 on it leaves a voltage drop. As long as does not exceed about 300 mA (see here resistance of 2.2 ohms / 0.6W), T1 remains closed and the entire load current flows from the IO. Transgresses If the voltage drop on R1 roughly 0,6-0,7V starts the T1 open and all the current that is above said value gradually takes over. In this circuit can be stabilized supply voltage roughly in stream 15A (depending on the used transistor cooler and the voltage difference between input and output).

Divider R2 / R3 while still providing control of the output voltage. Because the output power transistor is in the collector, which is connected with the housing, it is both active elements screwed to one chiller. A certain disadvantage is that the heat that follows may not radiate integrák must be paid on the transistor, or the cooler will play as wel

Circuit of LED Driver High Power

Circuit of LED Driver High Power

High-power LED's: the future of lighting!

but... how do you use them? where do you get them?

1-watt and 3-watt Power LED's are now widely available in the $3 to $5 range, so i've been working on a bunch of projects lately that use them. in the process it was bugging me that the only options anyone talks about for driving the LED's are: (1) a resistor, or (2) a really expensive electronic gizmo. now that the LED's cost $3, it feels wrong to be paying $20 for the device to drive them!

So I went back to my "Analog Circuits 101" book, and figured out a couple of simple circuits for driving power LED's that only cost $1 or $2.

This instructable will give you a blow-by-blow of all the different types of circuits for powering Big LED's, everything from resistors to switching supplies, with some tips on all of them, and of course will give much detail on my new simple Power LED driver circuits and when/how to use them (and i've got 3 other instructables so far that use these circuits). Some of this information ends up being pretty useful for small LED's too

here's my other power-LED instructables, check those out for other notes & ideas

This article is brought to you by MonkeyLectric and the Monkey Light bike light.

Step 1: Overview / Parts

There are several common methods out there for powering LED's. Why all the fuss? It boils down to this:
1) LED's are very sensitive to the voltage used to power them (ie, the current changes a lot with a small change in voltage)
2) The required voltage changes a bit when the LED is put in hot or cold air, and also depending on the color of the LED, and manufacturing details.

so there's several common ways that LED's are usually powered, and i'll go over each one in the following steps.


This project shows several circuits for driving power LED's. for each of the circuits i've noted at the relevant step the parts that are needed including part numbers that you can find at . in order to avoid much duplicated content this project only discusses specific circuits and their pros and cons. to learn more about assembly techniques and to find out LED part numbers and where you can get them (and other topics), please refer to one of my other power LED projects.

220V lamp flasher with IC 555

This is 220V 800W lamp flasher circuit directly connected to 220V mains. One or more lamp which has high consumption / power can be used. It is ideal for signage warning or danger, this circuit flickers the lamps.
220V lamp flasher with IC 555 circuit

The work of this circuit is simple. The 400V capacitor, the bridge rectifier, the zener diode and the capacitor 100?F will form the power supply voltage which obtained approx. 9VDC from transformerless power supply design. 

IC 555

The integrated 555 and its annexes components generate a train of pulses applied on the triac optocoupler MOC3021 driven intermittently causing the lamp on and off continuously. The triac may be a 2N6073A or TIC226D. By changing the 100K resistor or 1?F capacitor, then the flashing time will changed too. The rectifier bridge may be four 1N4007 diodes or 400v bridge diode with 1A current. The triac should be mounted on a heat sink to prevent over heating.

Warning!!! The entire circuit operates from 220v mains without insulation so the appropriate safety precautions should be taken to minimize the risk. Build this 220V 800W lamp flasher circuit with your own risk.

Simple Amplifier with Bass-Boost

High Quality, very simple design, No preamplifier required
This design is based on the 18 Watt Audio Amplifier, and was developed mainly to satisfy the requests of correspondents unable to locate the TLE2141C chip. It uses the widespread NE5532 Dual IC but, obviously, its power output will be comprised in the 9.5 – 11.5W range, as the supply rails cannot exceed ±18V. As amplifiers of this kind are frequently used to drive small loudspeaker cabinets, the bass frequency range is rather sacrificed. Therefore a bass-boost control was inserted in the feedback loop of the amplifier, in order to overcome this problem without quality losses. The bass lift curve can reach a maximum of +16.4dB at 50Hz. In any case, even when the bass control is rotated fully counterclockwise, the amplifier frequency response shows a gentle raising curve: +0.8dB at 400Hz, +4.7dB at 100Hz and +6dB at 50Hz (referred to 1KHz).

High Voltage Converter

The circuit shows one way of obtaining a voltage of 90V from a 1.5V battery supply the  High Voltage Converter. The LT1073 switching regulator from Linear Technology ( operates in boost mode and can work with an input voltage as low as 1.0 V. The switching transistor, which is hidden behind connections SW1 and SW2, briefly takes one end of choke L1 to ground. A magnetic field builds up in the choke, which collapses when the transistor stops conducting: this produces a current in diode D1 which charges C3. The diode cascade comprising D1, D2, D3, C2, C3 and C4 multiplies the output voltage of the regulator by four, the pumping of C2 causing the voltage developed across C4 via C3, D2 and D3 to rise.

Finally, the regulator control loop is closed via the potential divider (10 MΩ and 24 kΩ). These resistors should be 1 % tolerance metal film types. With the given component values, fast diodes with a reverse voltage of 200 V (for example type MUR120 from On Semiconductor and a choke such as the Coilcraft DO1608C-154 ( an output voltage of 90 V will be obtained. The output of the circuit can deliver a few milliamps of current.

DIY 220VAC Flashing Lights

Especially designed for Christmas tree lamps, Replaces old thermally-activated switches

This circuit is intended as a reliable replacement to thermally-activated switches used for Christmas tree lamp-flashing. The device formed by Q1, Q2 and related resistors triggers the SCR. Timing is provided by R1, R2 & C1. To change flashing frequency do not modify R1 and R2 values: set C1 value from 100 to 2200µF instead.
Best performances are obtained with C1= 470 or 1000µF and R4= 12K or 10K. Due to low consumption of normal 10 or 20 lamp series-loops intended for Christmas trees (60mA @ 230V typical for a 20 lamp series-loop), very small and cheap SCR devices can be used, e.g. C106D1 (400V 3.2A) or TICP106D (400V 2A), this last and the suggested P0102D devices having TO92 cases.

Switching Power Supply Soft Start

Switching power supply whose output voltage is appreciably lower than its input voltage has an interesting property: the current drawn by it is smaller than its output current. However, the input power (UI) is, of course, greater than the output power. There is another aspect that needs to be watched: when the input voltage at switch-on is too low, the regulator will tend to draw the full current. When the supply cannot cope with this, it fails or the fuse blows. It is, therefore, advisable to disable the regulator at switch-on (via the on/off input). until the relevant capacitor has been charged.
When the regulator then starts to draw current, the charging current has already dropped to a level which does not overload the voltage source.

Circuit diagram Switching power supply :

Switching power supply soft
Soft Start Circuit For Switching Power Supply

The circuit in the diagram provides an output voltage of 5 V and is supplied by a 24 V source. The regulator need not be disabled until the capacitor is fully charged: when the potential across the capacitor has reached a level of half or more of the input voltage, all is well. This is why the zener diode in the diagram is rated at 15 V. Many regulators produced by National Semiconductor have an integral on/off switch, and this is used in the present circuit. The input is intended for TTL signals, and usually consists of a transistor whose base is accessible externally. This means that a higher switching voltage may be applied via a series resistor: the value of this in the present circuit is 22 kΩ. When the voltage across the capacitor reaches a level of about 17 V, transistor T1 comes on, whereupon the regulator is enabled.

Circuit Description:

This is an easy to make power supply that has reliable, clear and regulator 0 to 28 Volt 6/8 Amp output voltage. By making use of two 2N3055 transistor, you’ll get two times the amount of electric current.
Although the 7815 power regulator may kick in on short circuit, overload and thermal overheating, the fuses in the main section of the transformer and the fuse F2 at the output will safe your power supply. The rectified voltage of: 30 volt x SQR2 = 30 x 1.41 = 42.30 volt measured on C1. So all capacitors should be rated at 50 volts. Caution: 42 volt will be the voltage that could be on the output if 1 of the transistors ought to blow.
P1 lets you ‘regulate’ the output voltage to something in between 0 and 28 volts. The LM317 lowest voltage is 1.2 volt. To have a zero voltage on the output I’ve place 3 diodes D7,D8 and D9 around the output with the LM317 towards the base with the 2N3055 transistors. The LM317 optimum output voltage is 30 volts, but using the diodes D7,D8 & D9 the output voltage is approx 30v – (3x 0.6v) = 28.2volt.
Adjust your build-in voltmeter using P3 and, of course, a fine digital voltmeter is better solution.
P2 will let you to control the limit with the optimum available electric current in the output +Vcc. When utilizing a 100 Ohm / 1 watt varistor the current is limited to approx. 3 Amps @ 47 Ohm and +- 1 Amp @ 100 Ohms.

Circuit Works:

All signal processing is done within the TDA1524A by voltage controlled amplifiers and voltage controlled filters. The IC provides a fixed voltage (~ 3.8V DC) at pin 17, and this is used by all the variable resistors to provide an adjustable DC voltage to the appropriate control pins.
Current sensing is used to provide a flat response when R5 is connected to pin 17, and a loudness contour when disconnected. 100 nF capacitors are used on each pot to decouple any AC signals from the control inputs. 10 uF capacitors are used to couple both input and output audio signals whilst blocking DC. R1 and R2, are to ensure stability with capacitive loads. R3 and R4 make sure there are no DC spikes at the output sockets if the load is switched. C3 and C4 control the loudness contour. C5 and C6 control the treble turn-over frequency. C18 and C19 have been added to roll off the gain above 70 kHz. Low volume settings coupled with treble boost was causing HF instability in some instances. This should no longer be a problem.

C15, 16, 17 provide power supply filtering. D1 provides protection in case of incorrect supply polarity. The LED is a power on indicator and may be omitted if not required, or preferably mounted on the enclosure. If you are not using a switch pot, you can connect an external switch across the P1 switch pins, or connect a wire link there and switch the power supply.

The power supply is critical to the noise performance of the pre-amp. An on board regulator is provided to reduce mains hum. If you wish to use it with a car or other 12V battery, then you should omit the 7812 regulator, and place a wire link between the regulator input and output pin positions on the PC board. Do not short to earth! This will be necessary because the regulator must have an input voltage at least 2-3V greater than it”s output, for it to maintain regulation. However the regulator will not be necessary with a battery supply.

If using a plug pack, it”s output voltage should be 15 to 18V DC. Because most plug packs have poor regulation, one rated at 12V DC will often be around 15V when lightly loaded. The current drain of the pre-amp is less than 50 mA, so many 12 V unregulated supplies may be adequate if you have one. Replace D1 with a wire link if necessary, making sure you have the supply polarity correct!
If you are using a 15-20V supply for your power amplifier, you can use that as your pre-amp supply as well. Make sure you test the voltage first in all cases.

Charging Phone Battery

The 220-240V AC mains source is stepped down to 9V AC by transformer X1. The transformer output is rectified by diodes D1 through D4 connected in bridge configuration and the positive DC source is straightly wired to the charger”s output contact, while the negative terminal is connected through current limiting resistor R2.
LED2 operates as being a power indicator with resistor R1 serving as the current limiter and LED3 signifies the charging status. While in the charging period, about 3 volts drop happens across resistor R2, which switches on LED3 through resistor R3.

How It Battery charging works

The circuit shown right here shows up as a low-cost option to charge cell phones or battery packs having a rating of 7.2 volts, for example Nokia 6110/6150. The 220-240V AC mains source is stepped down to 9V AC by transformer X1. The transformer output is rectified by diodes D1 through D4 connected in bridge configuration and the positive DC source is straightly wired to the charger”s output contact, while the negative terminal is connected through current limiting resistor R2. LED2 operates as being a power indicator with resistor R1 serving as the current limiter and LED3 signifies the charging status.
While in the charging period, about 3 volts drop happens across resistor R2, which switches on LED3 through resistor R3. An external DC supply source (for example, from a automobile battery) may also be applied to energise the charger, in which resistor R4, after polarity protection diode D5, limits the input current to a secure value. The 3-terminal positive voltage regulator LM7806 (IC1) delivers a fixed voltage output of 7.8V DC because LED1 interconnected in between the common terminal (pin 2) and ground rail of IC1 increases the output voltage to 7.8V DC. LED1 also acts as being a electrical power indicator for the external DC source. After building the circuit on a veroboard, enclose it inside a appropriate cabinet. A little heatsink is highly recommended for IC1.

Dew (condensed moisture) 

The main part of this circuit is a low cost dew sensor element (resistor type). Although dew sensor elements are widely used in video cassette players and recorders, these may not be easily available in local market. However, the same can be procured from authorised service centres of reputed companies. The author used the dew sensor for FUNAI VCP model No. V.I.P. 3000A (Part No:6808-08-04, reference no. 336) in his prototype. In practice, it is observed that all dew sensors available for video application possess the same electrical characteristics irrespective of their physical shape/size, and hence are interchangeable and can be used in this project.

Use  dual op-amp IC LM358N 

This simple and low cost dew sensor circuit is basically a switching type circuit made with the help of a popular dual op-amp IC LM358N which is configured here as a comparator. (Note that only one half of the IC is used here.) Under normal conditions, resistance of the dew sensor is low (1 Kohm or so) and thus the voltage at its non-inverting terminal (pin 3) is low compared to that at its inverting input (pin 2) terminal. The corresponding output of the comparator (at pin 1) is accordingly low and thus nothing happens in the circuit.

When humidity exceeds 80%, the sensor resistance increases rapidly. As a result, the non-inverting pin becomes more positive than the inverting pin. This will push up the output of IC1 to a high level. As a consequence, the LED inside the optocoupler is energised. At the same time LED1 provides a visual indication. The optocoupler can be used to any electronic device for switching purpose.
This circuit uses a low voltage, low current power supply unit. The diode D1, resistors R8 and R6 and capacitor C1 do the job. This simple power supply module obviates the requirement for a bulky and expensive step down transformer.
