The Audio Side Panel is designed to use with the Totem Mini Lab and Totem Micro Lab. This board focuses attention to the analog audio side of electronics, and contains an audio generation, visualization and output loop.
Side panels are meant to bring easy access to commonly used components that are difficult to wire on breadboards due to their dimensions, or require additional equipment to operate them. Side panels give a plug and play interface that lets users to concentrate on experiments or learning, rather than spending time solving issues on how to interface with the part.
This Side panel includes:
- Audio amplifier with speaker
AB class discrete audio amplifier with integrated loudspeaker. Can route amplified audio signal either to the speaker or to external sink via breadboard pins. Capable of outputting up to 1W of RMS power. Works with 12 V voltage source.
- LED VU-meter
Audio signal volume unit (VU) with 10 bar LED display. Works in approximately 3dB/step, 30 dB range. Has an integrated sensitivity adjustment potentiometer
- Digital function generator
Sine, square, and triangle wave generator capable of outputting signals up to 12.5 MHz. Has a potentiometer for output amplitude control. Can be easily controlled from TotemDuino board.
- Filter bench
Simple pi-filter prototyping area. Can be used to experiment with various component effect on signals.
Attaching to the Lab Frame:
- The Kit includes all ready-to-use mechanical parts and tools to fix side panel on the Lab frame.
- Fixes elegantly to the sides.
- You can easily have several panels attached to your Lab.
