Mobile Phone Signal Flash Light DIY Kit

Phone call lights kit can be used to sense the GSM signal display, sensing distance up to 1 m, it is a very interesting DIY kit.The main circuit is amplified antenna sensor signal circuit and circuit. Sensing signal through the antenna 3 to S8050 transistor amplifier to drive the LED, so that light up. When no signal is detected, no calls or no GSM phones, LED circuit is not only detects the signal to light up LED. Under $1 for this kit.

TDA2030A Electronic Audio Power Amplifier kit

TDA2030A is another audio amplifier, this one can supply 18w and the kit only costs $0.60. The specs are interesting.


Output Power: Maximum 18W
Supply Voltage: DC 9V-24V(recommended DC 12V, this voltage to the heat sink requirements are very low; Maximum supply of this board is actually up to 40V, but you need to change the board’s own electrolytic capacitor C1, the capacitor voltage value is higher than supply voltage can be use. )
Static Current: about 25mA (disconnect to tone, connect to 8Ω speaker, 12V power supply. )
Speaker Impendance: 4Ω-8Ω
Total harmonic distortion: THD 0.08%(Po=0.1 to 14W,RL=4Ω)
SNR: 94dB-106dB(1W-15W)

Output power: typical 20W (Max. 30W)
The speaker impedance: 4 Ω – 8 Ω
Total harmonic distortion: < 0.04%
Signal to noise ratio: 105dB
Frequency response: 14hz-100khz (maximum range calculated by RC high-low power circuit: 3.29 hz-482.29 kHz)
Power supply voltage: recommended ±25V (highest voltage shall not exceed ±30V, full bridge rectification of 18V is 25V)

Electronic Red Blue Double Color Flashing Kit

This kit has a NE555 and CD4017,the blue LED and red LED flashed alternately according to the pulse. The multivibrator composed of NE555 will have a certain frequency of oscillation signal send to CD4017 decimal counter/pulse distributor,in order to count. When the 1,3,5 pulses arrive Q0,Q2,Q4 output high level in turn,blue LED flashes 3 times,Q5,Q7,Q9 output high level in turn.Red LED flashes 3 times,blue LED flashes again when 11,13,15 pulses come,blue and red LED flashes alternately circulatory,so as to like the alarm lamp.Change the RP1 size can change the oscillation period, thus changing the LED shining speed, the whole circuit DC9-12V can be worked.

Red flashing light and blue flashing light form a board separately,connected with the main board through the stamp hole.If you need to install to other place separately or increase the distance,you should cut off through the stamp hole,then connect with the mother board by two wires.Please pay attention to the direction of LED when installing,especially the direction of L11 and L12.The R2 and R3 controls with the brightness of light,you can change it appropriately ,the range is 10-100 ohm.
supply power : 9-12V
