Links to electronic circuits, electronic schematics, designs for engineers, hobbyists, students & inventors:

2 Tone Train Horn -  With this circuit you can electronically simulate the noise of a diesel-train horn.  The sound is triggered automatically as the train reaches a desired place on the track so you can produce the sound as the train approaches stations, level crossings, etc.  The circuit can be built simply by using one 556 or two 555 timers __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

3 Level Audio Power Indicator -  Battery-operated3 LED display that connect it to loudspeaker output __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Ambulance Siren -  This siren circuit simulates police, fire or other emergency sirens that produce an up and down wail.   __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Automatic School Bell -  Consider that a school has a total of eight periods with a lunch break after the fourth period.  Each period is 45 minutes long, while the duration of the lunch break__ Electronics Projects for You

Bird Sound Generator -  A few years back, Wilf Rigter posted this circuit for making bird-like sounds __ Designed by Wilf Rigter

Canary Sound Effect -  An electronic version of a chirping canary.  May be used as an alarm, a sound effects generator or perhaps a replacement doorbell __ Designed by Andy Collison

Colour Organ -  Three Lamp-Channels Output - Built-in Electret Microphone __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Cricket Chipper Sound Generator -  Here is the aluminum "angle bar" I used.  It's easy to cut and drill.  The size I picked out is 1/16" X 1/2" X 3/4" and the sides are just short of 7".  The notch cut on the angle bar is about 2" in from the front (the length of your servo from front to back mounts).  Your cross pieces can be any length, but I made mine the size of my IC PCB (standard IC PCB from Radio Shack).  __ Credit to Sparky

Cricket Chirping Generator -  Funny gadget for props and jokes.5, 12V Battery operation.   __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Cuckoo-song Generator -  This circuit generates a two-tone effect very much alike the cuckoo song.  It can be used for door-bells or other purposes thanks to a built-in audio amplifier and loudspeaker
Used as a sound effect generator it can be connected to external amplifiers, tape recorders etc.  In this case, the built-in audio amplifier and loudspeaker may be omitted and the output taken across C8 and ground.   __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Dog Whistle -  it's well known that many animals are particularly sensitive to high-frequency sounds that humans can't hear.  Many commercial pest repellers based on this principle are available, most of them operating in the range of 30 to 50 kHz.   __ Designed by Tomaz Lazar-Ljubljana, Slovenia

Dual-Tone Horn -  This circuit generates two different frequencies and mixes these to produce a balanced ringing tone, which can be used in burglar alarms or call bells. The circuit uses a dual-timer IC LM556__ Electronics Projects for You

Electronic Canary Doorbell -  This circuit is a modified "Hartley Oscillator" with a couple extra parts.    T1, the LT700 (Tony van Roon's or equivalent, is a small center tapped (Tony van Roon's ct) audio transformer with an impedance of 1000 ohms at 1000 hertz.    The secondary of this transformer has an impedance of 8 ohms.    Usually noted as 1K:8 ct.    I tried a couple other models like the red and green types (Tony van Roon's taken out of a $5 made-in-china am pocket radio) and they both work good.    You may have to adjust the caps to get the sound __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Electronic Canary Sound Effects -  An electronic version of a chirping canary.  May be used as an alarm, a sound effects generator or perhaps a replacement doorbell __ Designed by Andy Collison

Electronic Chime -  Scroll Down to find this circuit.  This circuit simulates a chime similar to the sound many cars make when the keys are left in the ignition.  The bottom two gates form a squarewave audio oscillator that drives the base of the 2N4401, turning it on and off at an audio rate.  The top two gates produce a short low-going pulse about once per second that discharges the 10 uF capacitor through the diode.  The voltage then jumps up and slowly decays __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Electronic Dog Whistle -  Need electronic dog whistle? it is widely known that dogs can hear sounds with frequencies higher than the humans cant hear.  Sound frequencies higher than 20 kHz can be hardly detected by humans but animals are very sensitive to it.  Basing this fact, an electronic dog whistle can be constructed and used to call dogs back from __ Designed by D Mohankumar

Electronic Metronome -  A metronome is used by musicians for practice in maintaining a consistent tempo, or rubato, around a fixed beat.  This circuit produces a regular beat at the rate of 40 to__ Electronics Projects for You

Electronic Metronome -  A Universal Power supply based on the L200 regulator, which includes an outboard pass transistor to boost output currents up to 4 amps.   __ Designed by Volker Jeschkeit

Emergency Siren Simulator -  This siren circuit simulates police, fire or other emergency sirens that produce an up and down wail.   __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Infra Red Switch -  This is a single channel (on / off) universal switch that may be used with any infra Red remote control using 36-38kHz. (This is a very common remote handset frequency).  In place of iR1 a TSOP1738 receiver may be used.     __ Designed by Andy Collison

Machine Gun -  This circuit produces a sound very similar to a machine gun:__ 555-Timer

Metronome -  A Universal Power supply based on the L200 regulator, which includes an outboard pass transistor to boost output currents up to 4 amps.   __ Designed by Andy Collison

Metronome & Pitch Generator -  CMOS IC 1 and IC 2B quad AND gate form a 2.4576 MHz crystal oscillator plus a 2400 times divider.  IC 3A provides further division by 16, delivering a 64 Hz stable frequency square wave.  This frequency is multiplied (by means of Phase Locked Loop IC 5, double decade divider IC 4 and IC 3B 4 bit binary divider) by the number set by three miniature BCD thumbwheel switches SW1, SW2 and SW3: units, tens and hundreds respectively. __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Mini Metronome -  Linear scale Small size.40 to 208 beats per minute __ Contact Flavio Dellepiane, fladello @ tin.it

Model Train Diesel & Horn Sound Module -  A good friend of mine having just retired acquired as a gift a small gauge miniature train set and asked me if I would design something to simulate a diesel electric sound and horn for it.  Looking for shortcuts I researched many already-published designs most of which used a digital transmitter and receiver.  Dissatisfied with all of them I decided to design a system for universal application for any system up to 20 volts. __ Designed by Laurier Gendron, Burnaby, B.C., Canada

Model Train Horn (2-tone) -  With this circuit you can electronically simulate the noise of a diesel-train horn.  The sound is triggered automatically as the train reaches a desired place on the track so you can produce the sound as the train approaches stations, level crossings, etc.  The circuit can be built simply by using one 556 or two 555 timers __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR
