Silicon Chip - September 2015
by Silicon Chip
In this month's Silicon Chip magazine, the second part of the very popular Ultra Low Distortion 200W RMS Power Amplifier
project. This month details the construction of the amplifier together with some background on improving the distortion
performance and stability of the amplifier. This month also features the new Senator Louspeakers suitable for up to
250W power, with a staggering bass response down to below 20Hz. The speaker system features a 10inch Celestion Woofer together
with a T1534 Celestion Horn for the tweeter housed in a very attractive cabinet. The performance of these
speakers is exceptional and comes close to much more expensive commercial speaker systems.
Also this month, build a USB Charge Regulator with Low-Voltage Cutout. This miniature unit is
ideal for use in your car to charge phones or cameras and has the added feature of a low voltage cut-out to
prevent discharging your car's battery below 12.5V.
Finally, this month a 9-Channel Infrared Remote Control, for controlling a number of
devices with an easy to use remote control. The receiver is built into a single unit and has LED indication for
each channel, as well as the option to Momentary Switch a device or toggle on-off.
In this month's features, an excellent article on Autonomous Underwater Vehicles, these units are now able to
travel underwater for vast distances and are ideal for mapping the seabed or measuring ocean temperatures and
salinity. Also this month, a quick look at some of the new Ultra-High Definition monitors that are available for
your PC. These large 40-inch plus monitors are ideal for replacing a 2 monitor set-up or for high-accuracy
art work on your PC.
Plus all the regular columns, including the Circuit Notebook,
Serviceman's Log and Vintage Radio are included, providing stacks of great reading.
