Klon Buffer

This simple and effective buffer improves the high frequency degraded by long cables or pedal chains. It provides high input impedance and low output impedance with unity gain. You can also use it before pedals with low input impedance.

This pedal does not have any particular control, just connect the input, the output, and the power supply. Place it before a long cable or as the first pedal in the chain.

Protoboard for 1590B enclosure

This board will definitely save your time and help you to build your DIY guitar pedal in the 1590B enclosure. Just built your effect circuit on the preperforated area of the PCB. Led, jacks and footswitch are mounted on the PCB, being only necessary to wire the battery. The PCB also includes power supply filtering and reverse polarity protection
This PCB in Tayda website https://www.taydaelectronics.com/protoboard-for-1590b-diy-pcb-guitar-effect.html

The schematic of this PCB is similar to DH.E14 (http://taydakits.com/instructions/1590b-enclosure-pcb  http://www.taydaelectronics.com/1590b-diy-pcb-guitar-effect.html )

SMD Transistor PCB

Quality through-hole JFETs are becoming hard to find, replacing them with their SMD version is the best solution. This PCB is designed for placing JFET SMD transistors and easily substituting the through-hole ones in your circuit.

PCB   https://www.taydaelectronics.com/smd-toto-92-diy-pcb-guitar-effect.html

The PCB is marked with D (Drain), S (Source) and G (Gate).

 

The PCB is designed for J201, 2N5457, 2N5458, MPF102... with the pinout as shown in the following figure. If you want to use other types of transistors, please check the pinout in their datasheet.

ASSEMBLINGpcb

Add a small amount of solder on each pad of the PCB.Place the transistor over the pads with the tweezers. Melt the solder on the PCB pads and the transistor legs.

You can use pin headers (40 PIN 2.54MM RIGHT ANGLE SINGLE ROW PIN HEADER) or wires to connect the PCB to your effect circuit. The pin headers can be assembled on both sides of the PCB, depending on the available room that you have around the transistor on the effect PCB.

        

Once the transistor and the pin headers have been placed, you can place the PCB on the original through-hole footprint.

HC-SR04 ULTRASONIC RANGE SENSOR

How to set up the Hc-SRO4 Ultrasonic Range Sensor 

I got 2 of these a week ago there great but there not much on how to set them up so I figured I share how I did it.

First off you have to wire it up which from what I have read people was doing it wrong more then once. So here is how I got it to work .

I added the serial file so you can use the Serial Monitor to get reading in cm. The zip file has all you need to get this work.

Pin 9 is used for trig pin 10 is used for echo. Vcc to 5 volt pin on the arduino. And gnd to gnd on the arduino.

Here a picture to make it easy Great little range finder at great price 

The files you need to add to the arduino ide are here

Mailbox Alert

This is a simple two transistor latching switch that turns on a 555 timer circuit to flash an led.  The entire circuit including the battery pack fits perfectly inside an Altoids tin.  I mounted the tin in the back of the mailbox with the reset switch and led mounted thru the back of the mailbox.  The triger wires were siliconed to the top inside of the mailbox with the trigger switch attached to the inside front against the mailbox door.  When the door is closed, the door pushes against the lever on the switch and opens the trigger switch.  When the door is opened, the switch closes and trigers the circuit.  The circuit can be trigered over and over without reseting the circuit.  With the door closed and the reset switch puished, the circuit returns to the standby state.  The current draw in the standby state is only a few microamps so battery life will be long.

It's cheap, simple and could serve many purposes.

Attached are pics of project, circuit and parts list.

Modular PSU

This is a simple power supply with little distribution board, which gives you +/-12 (or even 15, if you want to) and +5 (optional). You can brake the board, if you want to place PSU and distr. board on distance. Also you can connect souces to CV and Gate buses. It is not very useful for most modern modules, but if you creating your own stuff, you can really improve commutation.

LM3x7 have to be on the heatsink, 7805 may be in thermal (not electrical) contact with ground plane.

VibroPunk Sequencer

 

VibroPunk Sequencer

 

 

This is an intermediate level electronics project. You have to be able to read a schematic and transfer it into real world components and connections. There is no premade circuit board, it uses a blank experimenters circuit board which you have to lay out yourself using the schematics and my pictures. You also need decent soldering skills. That said, it's not too hard if you take it one connection at a time and double check your work. If you can read a schematic and solder, you can build this.

Let's look at the parts list...

Uno R3 Starter Kit

Learning how to use microprocessors is an excellent way to start out in the world of hobbyist electronics, as well as learning how to create computer code that brings your projects to life. The open source Uno R3 board is the most accessible and user-friendly microprocessor commercially available, and the volume of information available on-line and in books is astounding. The best way to begin this journey is through the purchase of a high-quality starter kit that not only gets you all of the essentials to start, but provides enough intermediate and advanced components to keep you tinkering for months or years. 

This starter kit was designed specifically to provide everything that a beginner could possibly need to be well on their way. Endless tutorials are available across numerous websites online that can be accessed on how best to utilize all included items, as well as in the description sections for all of the items right here on the Tayda Electronics website.
