Introduction: Simple Function Generator
In my last instructable i showed you how to build pwm signal generator, and i used it to filter some other waveforms from it. In this instructable i will show you how to make simple function/frequency generator, how to drive relay with it and how blink led without arduino.
All you need is:
- 10uF cap
- 1uF cap
- 100nF cap
- 2 x 10nF cap
- 100 pF cap
- Red LED
- 68k ohm resistor
- 3,9k ohm resistor
- 1k ohm resisitor
- 9V battery
- 9V battey clip
- and filter from my last instructable link: https://www.instructables.com/id/PWM-Signal-Gener...
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Build It
Circuit is easy to build it consists of oscillator and frequency selector. The wire that sticks out can be connected to male headers near capacitors, to set the frequency
Step 2: Measure It
Output of your oscilator should look like this
Step 3: Build Filter
Filter is from my last instructable, but in this project i have soldered it on piece of perf board
Step 4: Measure Filter
Waveforms should look like this, first one is after one low pass filter, second one is after two low pass filters and last one is after one high pass filter
Step 5: 12V LED Blinker
This is example use of this project. I didn't putted resistor on the schematic. I've used it because light was too intense for my camera
