Micro Spy with FETs -  Circuit and notes only, no circuit description given.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Micro Spy with TTL -  This circuit is old  (70's) but since the 74LS13 is from the regular 74xx series and easy to obtain, I decided to keep the circuit in place until components are no longer available.  Not much to tell here.  Performance is based on the 74LS13, a 'Dual 4-input Positive-Nand Schmitt Trigger'.  This circuit was experimental and so has no real purpose other than tinkering.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Micro Spy with USW -  Circuit and notes only, no circuit description given.   __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Microcontroller converts digital-temperature-sensor readings without floating-point arithmetic -  03/05/09  EDN-Design Ideas Convert digital-temperature-sensor readings without floating-point arithmetic __ Circuit Design by Jordan Dimitrov, Toronto, ON, Canada

Microphone from a Speaker -  A circuit to Impedance Match a Speaker as a Mike.    Speakers can make a Good Microphone for some applications.    Bigger Speakers may also have a Good Low Frequency Response.     Ever seen a 15 Inch Microphonethis Circuit will do it __ Designed by G.L. Chemelec

Microphone Mixer -  Designed for 3-dynamic microphonesThis relatively simple mixer was designed for three dynamic microphones, but can be re-designed for more or less.  Level and tone controls are available to tailor the sound to your needs.   __ Designed by Aaron Cake

Microphone On/Off Switch Circuit is Pop Free -  This circuit uses a simple technique to eliminate the usual “pop” sound when an electret type microphone is switched on or off.  The circuit is completely passive and will work on dynamic and electret type microphones . . . Hobby Circuit designed by Dave Johnson P.E.-February, 2002

Microphone Polarity Tester -  Many things can go wrong in a modern recording studio, but few are as difficult to track down as reversed microphone polarity.  When a microphone is placed in front of a sound source, a positive pressure on its diaphragm caused by forward-moving air results in a positive voltage on one of its output pins and a negative voltage on the other.  But which pin is positive? These days most microphones have XLR output connectors, with Pin 2 used for the positive voltage output and Pin 3 for the negative.  But you can't always count on this, especially if the microphone is an older model, or was ever repaired or otherwise rewired. __ Designed by Ethan Winer

Microphone pre-amp with high emphasis -  Ham RadioSchematic __ Designed by Guy Roels ON6MU

Microphone PreAmplifier -  This is a simple microphone preamplifier circuit which you can use between your microphone and stereo amplifier.  This circuit amplifier microphone suitable for use with normal home stereo amplifier line/CD/aux/tape inputs.  This microphone preamplifier can take both dynamic and electret microphone inputs  (preamplifier provides power foe electret microphone elements) .  The idea of this circuit is to keep the design as simple as possible __ Designed by Tomi Engdahl

Microphone Preamplifier -  A low noise pre-amplifier suitable for amplifying dynamic microphones with 200 to 600 ohm output impedance.   __ Designed by Andy Collison

Microphone Test Oscillator -  This unit would be mounted in a small plastic or preferably metal box, with a 9V battery, level control, a male XLR connector  (same as on a mic) and a switch.  Current drain is low, since the circuit only uses one dual opamp.  There is no need for a high quality device, and a 1458  (or 4558 which is somewhat better but still cheap) is all that is needed __ Designed by Rod Elliott  ESP

Microphone Tester -  This circuits is handy for finding an intermittent short or open in a microphone cord or switch.  It produces a week tone in the microphone so that you can flex the cord and operate the switch to find faults.  It won't find an open shield or a short from  __ Designed by Andrew R. Morris

Microphone to Neck Loop Coupler for Hearing Aids -  Hearing-aid wearers often have difficulty understanding conversations in noisy environments, especially if they have switched their personal hearing aid from microphone mode to T-coil mode.  This projects solves that problem.__ SiliconChip

Microphone uses "phantom power" -  08/30/01 EDN-Design Ideas The electret microphone capsule is similar to those commonly used in telephones, cassette recorders, and computers.  The element functions as a capacitor with a fixed trapped charge.  Sound pressure moves a diaphragm, producing variations in the capacitance.  This action produces an ac-output voltage with an extremely high source impedance __ Circuit Design by Bruce Trump, Texas Instruments, Tucson, AZ

Mike Muter for Singing Guitarists -  The average musical Do-It-Yourselfer starts building guitar effects by making a distortion pedal of some sort.  It's a good introduction to musical electronics, and pretty simple as well, since getting a circuit NOT to be linear has never been hard.  But there comes a time when you have to stop thrashing the strings in your bedroom, get up on stage and *play*.  When you get to there, you run into all kinds of little problems that you never encountered back in your room.   __ Designed by R.G. Keen

Mike Pads & Other Small Gadgets -  Includes Active Direct Box circuit

Mike Preamp Power Supply with Phantom Power -  Uses a single 48 VAC center-tapped transformer __ Contact: info @ forsselltech . com

Circuit by David A. Johnson P.E.-February, 2002

Portable Microphone Preamplifier -  This circuit is mainly intended to provide common home stereo amplifiers with a microphone input.  The battery supply is a good compromise: in this manner the input circuit is free from mains low frequency hum pick-up and connection to the amplifier is more simple, due to the absence of mains cable and power supply __ Contact: Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

PortaPAL Public Address System-Part 2 -  Here's the good oil on putting it together and getting it to work.  We even describe an easy way to build a box.__ SiliconChip

Simple Circuit Stereo Electret Microphone PreAmplifier -  The leftmost 10k resistor supplies plug-in-power to the electret, forming part of the FET amplifier in the electret capsule.  This could be anything from 2k to 10k, the higher the better the stereo separation  (another mic derives bias from the same rail) .  Apparently higher values also lower distortion, and the best bias power circuits involve actually breaking a trace on the electret capsule to allow the use of both a drain & source resistor, but I’m not going that far.  

Simple Circuit Wireless Microphone -  This wireless FM microphone is simple to build and it has a useful transmitting range  (over 300 meters in the open air) .  Despite its small component count and a 3V operating voltage it will easily penetrate over three floors of an apartment building.  It may be tuned anywhere in the FM band  (87-108MHz) and its transmissions can be picked up on any standard FM receiver.__ hobbyteam @ hobby-hour.com
