Wall warts eliminate the need for batteries in bench gear while freeing the builder from having to work with high-voltage AC wiring.

I hold a Degree in Electrical Engineering so this is a subject that I scrutinize closely. The experimenter will find that each cylinder exhibits a characteristic peak that relates loosely to its volume 3. If circuit demand exceeds capacitor storage, instability results from signal modulating the supply.

B The Basement Bugger’s version of same circuit more practical for battery-powered gear, simplified by elimination of one comparator.

B What’s happening inside an electret mic. The mic must reside precisely at the focus. Bottom photo shows mic with cover removed, revealing metal foil diaphragm. Take care to distinguish wall resonance from cavity resonance. High gain and presence of several active devices on same power bus demand bypass cap C8. B single C dual D quad.

Bibles Paperback Books in Russian. This may explain why bubgers open literature ignores tools that promote resonance and points up cavity mics as a wide-open field for the experimenter.

These subtypes are categorized in many ways, the most useful to the bugger being: Requires tunable source of 5V squarewaves, such as NE Now replace Rx with a 1 00K resistor; note increase in noise.

Standard pinouts of op amps in dual inline packages: This circuit’s cutoff point is – 1 60 Hz. Feed sinewave output to line input basemeent home stereo system. Resistive divider R 1-R2 determines what percentage of line-level signal gets to input.


Good mono phones are scarce, and great stereo phones abound. B Bile databook ACC schematic. Summing all squared noise terms and ranking them for percentage of total: Modern nicads have beaten the memory effect, so the user does not have to periodically discharge them all the way.

In the bug band ceramic mics behave as medium- impedance devices. An obvious and evil purpose made the shotgun a magnet for heat. Muting noted in the final few degrees of travel of butgers volume-control pot feeding a from an op amp usually traces to ultrasonic oscillation in the op-amp output stage.

The Basement Bugger’s Bible : Shifty Bugman :

Signal is not allowed to increase once it passes threshold. High threshold combined with high compression ratio gives the sound typical of hard rock FM stations, which squeeze practically all dynamic range out of their feeds. Alkaline batteries possess several times the capacity of nicacLs. Here the problem lies not with insufficient capacity but in the need to isolate individual circuit segments through resistor-capacitor RC networks.

The assembly can be built in the time needed to solder leads to the mic. A simple fixture can make an electret hible most sensitive contact mic the bib,e has encountered. Their use in the signal path is usually accompanied by intrusive noise.

A, B, and F are unspecialized buggees in various sizes and with various types of edge connectors. Micropower op amps are useful in sensor applications that generate only a DC output, such as comparators to sense a phone to be off the hook. At that point the op amp delivers maximum gain, in keeping with open loop gain curve.

In operation, increasing R4 feeds more audio to charge pump, generating greater positive voltage. A circuit unstable with lOpF of bypass might even out with pF or pF, an empiric move readily tested on the breadboard.


R3 sets gain at 40 dB.

E Method of wiring stereo jack to drive stereo phones in series mono mode; note that, in this case, the sleeve terminal must be insulated from ground. Like op amps, discrete transistors have characteristic input voltage noise and input current noise.

The exercise also enables calculation of what each source contributes to total noise. Power op amps are optimized for drive current and noise and are speed secondary, though high current and high speed often coincide.

Variable voltage is available through wiper of R4, tied to gate of Q2, held low in resting state by R5.

They come in five flavors: Note that if value of R3 is lowered to raise gain, a significant Hasement offset can develop at output, necessitating offset bassment network; thus, this configuration basemnt only moderate gain.

Circuit inside dotted line is a preamp with roughly 60 dB of gain at 3 KHz.

Each uses distinctive means to max- imize gain, minimize noise, and shape response.
