Learn about and how to use the LM Logarithmic Dot/Bar If you’re wanting to make a VU meter, you should use the LM which we. You’ve saturated the input (SIG, pin 5) above the reference voltage (Rhi, pin 6). That’s why the only the topmost LED flickers in dot mode and all.

We will start with the electronics part.
CharlieHanson 1, 4 All manner of rectifiers can be found in the ‘s datasheet, and the goes that bit further with genuine-specification VU-meter circuits. So, in the housing first goes the filmed glass and on top of it the Styrofoam with the LEDs.
Once they are secured in place on top of them goes the mirror which is also secured using a glue gun. Even if you’ve connected the 3. This project is based on the Vi integrated circuit which can sense analog voltage levels and driver ten LEDs. This is ln3915 schematic from SFE and they way i hooked everything up.

So I secured the infinity mirror to the box using a glue gun, cut its cover to size, made the holes and attached the power jack, the audio jack, the potentiometer and the switch. So if there is lm395 that might know whats up with this, it would be much appreciated. Inside a huge PCB factory: The input impedance of the is 20k and 12k for theso you might need to fine-tune the cap value to get a better low-frequency cut off. Feel metfr to ask any question in the comments section below.
Depending on the quality of the film and the amount of reflection it provides, the light will keep bouncing between the mirror and the glass but at the same time some of the light will escape through the glass. Next we need something on which we will attached the LEDs that will hold them between the mirror and the glass. My guess it scenario b.
Nothing changes, always the same results.

The analog signal goes into pin number 5, the pins from 6 to 8 are used for adjusting the voltage reference emter the sensing and the pin number 9 is used for selecting Bar or Dot mode. Hello, Can I use 9Vdc power supply without doing any modification?
Email Required, but never shown.
If the audio source is your PC soundcard, and you’re powering the from an Arduino board which is in turn powered by the same PC’s USB power, you can’t guarantee the audio ,eter is the same as the ‘ground’. Once we are done with that we also need to solder all wires coming from the LEDs to the circuit board.

Once you are done with this, you vh test whether the electronics work properly. If you look at the SF schematic, they’ve connected a direct adjustable DC source to pin 5, whereas you’re connecting an audio source that could be: It may be a little too much, but you get a much better visual effect. At this point it can get a bit messy because of the many wires so you should be careful when connecting them. Check what kind of voltage is there with a multimeter if you can first, or just stick with trial and error.
Yes, you can use 9V DC power supply.
