Re: Results of MAX9814 in uBitx #ubitx

John <passionfruit88@...>
 

Thanks Tim.

One additional benefit of the MAX9814 solution is the reduction in TX pops both when switching in and out of Tx mode. How much reduction is dependant on the sensitivity. At 30% input volume it's total, at 7-10% it's partial but enough in my opinion.

All the best, 73, John

NJM2073D seems to be a replacement for TDA2822, price is about one dollar:

2000).
Maybe hfsignals will move to the more easily gotten SMD part if they ever
roll the board.
Though I'm pretty sure I could solder the SMD into place with just some
short wires,
not bothering with the adapter board.

The chip is rated to work with a 4Ω load so a 4Ω resistor should do. I
doubt the chip would blow so fast that FB fuse wouldn’t protect it.
Yes, I think a 4 ohm resistor would probably do, I was getting rather
cautious when I saw how hard the M part was to obtain.
I'm suspicious that with a 12v supply it is close to the edge, they seem
to blow with little provocation.
Most of the datasheet seems to assume a max of 9v.
The fact that it works down to 1.8v reinforces this notion.

The fuse might protect it, depends on the failure mode.
The fuse costs about as much as the TDA2822D.

Re: Designing Maritime Radio #bitx40

Hi Qonita,


This sounds like a good project, most of what you are doing will involve programming. Hardware wise you’ll need to setup the output filters as either lowpass or bandpass. All Maritime and commercial services use Upper Sideband (USB) and they are also channelized. You will need to set your mode to USB and you could setup the encoder as a rit/clarifier. If you are in need of more than one channel the encoder switch can be used to change or step through channels. Also you could program the display to readout the channel number and frequency. This would streamline your code a lot and maybe leave room for decode program for the GPS position stream and DSC functions. 

Have fun with it and let us know how it goes.

Tayda has the TDA2822L for $0.29 each with 126,973 available.  It’s an 8 pin DIP.  Didn’t see any glaring differences looking at the data sheets but another pair of eyes might see something.  Also I noticed that the datasheets show power outputs with a 4 ohm load with a max Vcc of 6 volts so a 4 ohm resistor might not provide protection with a Vcc of 12 volts.

So where did you get your spare TDA2822M's?

The TDA2822M is $7 for two on ebay, quite expensive for what it is.
Mainline distributors like Mouser and Digikey say it's discontinued.
ST no longer makes it, sources may be drying up.

My uBitx has a part on it marked "TDA2822M" but no ST logo, not sure who makes it.

I wonder if a small light bulb. like the old standby #47 could protect a speaker short.

Maybe some type fast lo-mass fast Thermistor?   Something that has small resistance, but goes up quickly with a short.

Just thinking crazy.

I'll go with an 8 ohm 1/2 watt series resistor to limit current.
At least till I find a good source for TDA2822M chips.
I'm fairly certain that resistor will offer sufficient protection.

Re: U1 fried

I ordered on eBay. Ordered the TDA2822L and the TDA2822M.
The L comes from the US and I paid $3.99 for 5
The M comes from China and I paid $2.75 for 10.
So at least I will have some spares.

First ordered the Ms butbthat will be a long wait. So after I saw the La in the US I ordered those as well.

Now that we have a bunch of sources for the part,
I might be more inclined to experiment.

Resistance of a small incandescent bulb can go up a factor of 10 when it gets hot:  https://groups.io/g/BITX20/message/21901 
That or a fuse would be easier to replace than an 8 pin dip.

Pilot Lamp Bulbs.

Here is a chart from the past.  Guys that build tube guitar amps still buy them.

#47 was the most popular when I was a kid, #44 to get more Light.

There would be a lot of experimenting to see if they would work to protect the amp.

What impedance speaker you are using would be a big factor too.

Mouser has it for $1.19, minimum buy of 1.  The part number is listed as TDA2822D013TR.  The data sheet doesn’t show anything about the 013TR suffix so it’s likely referring to packaging variation (tube vs cut tape).

As to soldering it in directly, I do something like that.  If it fits you can place it over the pads and solder the inner two pins on each side right to the pads then tack solder fine wire to the outer two pins on each side and then to the pads on the PCB.  I use wire-wrap wire, sans insulation.

Jerry,

TDA2822D is LOW power compared to the 8 pin DIP. Check and compare.. the 16 pin DIP has even greater output!

HOW ABOUT A PARTS LIST, NO VALUES IN PRINT

Re: U1 fried

Lawrence Galea
 

As found on a post, a component will sacrifice itself to protect the fuse.
I suggest using a 7808 to supply the TDA amplifier with a lower voltage and also provide current limit protection.
There is also the choice of using a complete cheap audio amplifier that one can find on ebay, bangood etc.
They are cheap and it would probably cost you more to build it yourself.

Lawrence

TDA2822 ill treatment test!

 

Having used TDA2822 for decades and never had a failure of any kind even with the chip running very hot,
I got this urge to short my uBitx audio output and see it the chip blows.

Power supply 13.6V
Current limit 2A

Touching the volume control leads produces a loud 50Hz hum. At this volume I directly shorted the wires
at the EP jack. The chip got mildly warm thats it.

No smoke or explosions ! I think that some may have got bad/defective/BY chips..

Cheers

Re: U1 fried

The TDA2822 obviously can not stand the 12V. After having blown two TDA2822's, I soldered a socket in its place, and made an adapter for the LM386, which never failed at 12V.
Here is the wiring:

LM386 pin:     2  -  4   TDA2822 corresponding pin
                       3  -  7
                       4  -  4
                       5  -  1
                       6  -  2

Very simple and effective.

If I wranted to build a circuit like this one is there a software to help me layout a perfboard for the circuit.  I have LTSpice but I don't see anything to layout a perf board in it. It just may be that I don't know where that feature is in the software.

There are plenty of threads here I'd just as soon skip over, and often do.
Perhaps you can do the same.
I for one am fine with discussions of antennas (that seems very appropriate) 
and with discussing the pros and cons of the Bitx radios vs others.

A good guideline: if it does not involve a bitx or utibx, it probably does not belong here.
