Silicon Chip - January 2014
by Silicon Chip
Just Arrived the January issue of Silicon Chip. This month for the HiFi buffs, build the
new revised Bass Extender. This unit provides a much deeper bass out of your loadspeakers, extending the
bass as much as an octave, with a bass response down to 20Hz. This unit uses readily available
parts and is housed in an attractive professional case, construction is quite simple, with the
project taking only 2-3 hours to complete. Also this month, for the Disco and Party enthusiasts, a new LED Party
Strobe, this unit features a lot of improvements over previous designs, providing a new safer design with
low power LED's in a sturdy case. For the constructors of the Porta Pal portable PA System, this month
includes the construction details, with each of the pcb's covered and also connecting the various boards together.
Finally this month, the final assembly of the Tiny Tim Stereo Amplifier with testing and setting up covered.
This month's features include an interesting look at developing a fuel injection unit for small
engines, this unit uses an Arduino board to control a small 4-stroke engine, making the
design ideal for use with lawn mowers and go-karts. The unit increases the power and performance
of these small engines. Also in this month's features, a quick look at the Sydney Mini Maker Faire and
a review of the new Rigol 4-Channel Digital Storage Oscilloscope.
All the regular columns, including the Circuit Notebook,
Serviceman's Log and Vintage Radio are included, providing stacks of great reading.
