Here the variable desktop power supply which will convert a high input voltage (12V) from the SMPS / PSU of a desktop computer into small output voltage (1.25 to 9 volts). This converter will be very beneficial for electronics hobbyists. An adjustable three-pin voltage regulator chip LM317T (IC1) is applied right here to deliver the desired voltages. The LM317T regulator, in TO-220 pack, could deal with current of approximately 1 [...]
Here the circuit diagram of musical bell with touch switch and timer. This circuit is designed around CMOS IC CD4011 which work as the delay timer and IC UM66 which is well-known musical sound generator. When touch plates are bridged (touched) by hand for a moment, the circuit will start to produce music sound. Just after a short period (few seconds), the musical sound from this circuit will automatically stop.
This is the cell phone shield circuit which can be used as mobile charger. Give protection to your cell phone from unexpected use or theft working with this easy circuit. It is able to produce a loud chirping sound when someone tries to take away the mobile handset. The added function is that the circuit also operates as being a mobile charger. The circuit is powered by a step-down transformer [...]
The following diagram is a simple mobile phone battery charger circuit. The design is simple, easy to build and inexpensive. It use LM78xx regulator to make regulated and stable output voltage. Mobile phone chargers offered in the marketplace are quite expensive. 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.
