TDA1554Q Audio Amplifier
TDA1554Q is a 4*11W single ended or 2*22W power amplifier IC, with an
integrated Class-B output amplifier. TDA1554Q comes in a 17 lead
single-in-line package. The internal circuitry contains a 4*11W single
ended or 2*22W bridge amplifier. Among all four amplifiers two are
inverting and other two are non-inverting. Also, each amplifier has a
gain of 20dB (26dB in BTL). TDA1554q also have mute/stand-by feature.

Hi guys, during the last few weeks, I’ve been working on reconnecting with my love for the guitar. Playing the box guitar was how I relax few years back before the saxophone took over. Going back to the guitar, after 3 years of rarely strumming a chord, I discovered amongst other things that I no longer knew how each of the string should sound, to put it in my friend’s words, “My hearing was no longer tuned” and as a result of this, I was not able to tune the guitar without the aid of a keyboard or a mobile app which I later downloaded. The weeks went by till few days ago when the maker in me became motivated and I decided to build an Arduino based Guitar Tuner. In today’s tutorial, I will be sharing how to build your own DIY Arduino Guitar Tuner.

A Power supply unit is a very commonly used tool by most engineers during the development stage. I personally use it a lot when experimenting with my circuit designs on Breadboard or to power up a simple module. Most of the digital circuits or embedded circuits have a standard operating voltage of either 5V or 3.3V, so I decided to build a Power supply which can supply 5V/3.3V on the power rails of the breadboard and fits snugly on the breadboard.
BC549 NPN Transistor
BC549 is a NPN transistor hence the
collector and emitter will be left open (Reverse biased) when the base
pin is held at ground and will be closed (Forward biased) when a signal
is provided to base pin. It is a low current transistor hence the
maximum amount of current that could flow through the Collector pin (Ic)
is 100mA, hence we cannot connect loads that consume more than 100mA
and load voltage more than 30V using this transistor. BC549 has a decent
gain value hfe from 420 to 800; this value determines the amplification
capacity of the transistor.

UM3561 Sound Generator IC
UM3561 includes oscillator and selector circuits, a
compact sound module can be constructed with only a few additional
components. The UM3561 contains a programmed mask ROM to simulate siren
sound. There is a tone generator within UM3561, which is able to
generate different tones using the oscillator clock and according to the
data given by the ROM. Each data stored in the ROM corresponds to each
tone and it can be selected by using the address of the data location.

1N5822 Schottky Diode
Schottky diodes have very low forward drop voltage VF
which makes them ideal for fast switching applications at lower current
ratings. 1N5822 have forward voltage drop of minimum 0.525 V that is it
requires 0.525 V to conduct in forward biased direction. The 1N5822 has
maximum average forward rectified current IF(AV) of 3A. The maximum repetitive peak reverse voltage VRRM for 1N5822 is 40V.
Once I started building the self balancing robot, I realized that this bot is a bit of a challenge to build. There are so many options to select from and hence the confusions start right form selecting the motors and remains till tuning PID values. And there are so many things to consider like type of battery, position of battery, wheel grip, type of motor driver, maintaining the CoG (Centre of gravity) and much more.
But let me break it to you, once you build it you will agree that it’s not as hard as it sounds to be. So let’s face it, in this tutorial I will document my experience in building the self balancing robot. You might be an absolute beginner who is just getting started or might have landed up here after a long frustration of not getting your bot to work. This place aims to be your final destination.
