I’m looking to simply read the generic sound level from an Electret Microphone. I realize I could easily correct for tdansistor in software, but it just seems transisyor to me in a way and I cannot find any examples of a non-inverting output with a PNP transistor.

Is there a reason for this beyond being uncommon? Further, is there some reason why this is so uncommon, or undesirable?

Here’s what I want instead:. This could be read by the ADC easily into ‘sound level’ without much work at all. It looks like I want the above with an envelope detector, however that would only get me from 0V to 2.

How do I make it vary the full 0V to 5V, 0V being ‘quiet’ and 5V being ‘loud’, with everything in between linear? As far as I understood, you are trying to make some kind of a sound level detector, trahsistor will let transistkr detect if there is a sound with a certain volume or not. You can do this with minor changes to the schematic you have. But before that, you should understand the circuit. R1 is for supplying power that is needed by the microphone and this is called biasing the microphone.

A microphone generates an AC voltage, which is sometimes negative and sometimes positive and it changes most of the time.

Think of a sine wave. But remember, we had some biasing to it which is a DC voltage. We have to take that out and give only the AC voltage to the amplifier. And doing this is easy with a simple, single capacitor. A capacitor yransistor not let the DC to pass, but lets AC pass easily.

We have blocked the DC portion of the voltage on the electret microphone. Now, let’s look at the amplifier itself. Imagine that there is nothing else but the below schematic:. In this configuration, the transistor is biased to be in the linear region.

If it was transisror ON, it would be saturated. If it was fully OFF, it would be not conducting at all. But it is in the middle, which is called the linear region.

When it is configured like that, if you touch not literally to the base of it, creating a small change, the output will be changing largely. This is what amplification called. You can beg Google for more detailed information.


What if we combine the two circuits mentioned above. A biased electret microphone with a capacitor will output small changes with respect to sound. The transistor will amplify these small changes so they can be viewed easily:. Notice that I have changed C1 to 1uF. You can use values up to uF. You will probably need electrolytic capacitors. Also, notice that there is no more an output capacitor.

This means that you will have an output voltage somewhere between 0 and 5 V, yransistor on the sound level. If you have an oscilloscope, view the waveform on the output. If you do not, try lighting an LED if the analog read is higher than, for example, Experiment with different values thanthen report me the results. The common emitter class A amplifier is always inverting even if you use a PNP, the only difference is you invert the power supply polarity.

If you ttransistor an audio transformer instead of a capacitor you could change the signal phase as you please. But it will probably cost more than use two BJT. In order to solve your final question anyway, you have to rectify even with a single diode the output and apply the result to a load a resistor would be fine and feed this to the arduino analog input.

There is no reason to invert the signal at all. This amplifier inverts the signal, but you shouldn’t care for an audio signal. What you’ll have at the output is AC, a capacitor blocks DC. If what you want is a sound level sensor, one easy way is to add, after the output cap a circuit called hransistor or “peak detector”, easily implemented around a diode and a few passive components. Simply invert the output a second time, using a 2 stage amplifier. See this page for more info on two stage, and non-inverting transistor amplification.

The same value resistors and capacitors, the same 2n transistor, added to the output of your existing schematic, would provide a second inversion.

2n30994 someone correct me if I am wrong, but your schematic shows a simple biased amplifier, so you would really have 2. Thank you for your interest in this question.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Here’s what I want instead: Ehryk 4 11 Unfortunately, this circuit transistof not generate a DC voltage, if the output is taken on the right side of C2. It will generate an AC voltage. This is because of the capacitors. Transisfor do not allow DC voltages pass through them. The Arduino has 6 analog inputs, which read for 0V-5V. AC is what Transisto be looking for there, right? Perhaps I’d need a diode to not be passing negative voltage to the Analog comparator?


Yes, but a diode will drop 0. Maybe you should try to make the supply voltage 5V. Then, read 23n094 analog value on the collector of Q1. Experiment with different sound levels, for example clap, talk, shout, be quiet, whisper, and see the analog reading changing. However, it will be a sine wave ttransistor with a DC value. Reading your question and comments it appears that your questiojn is not clearly stating what you want.

It seems that you want an AC level which diminishes in magnitude as the input voltage increases. If this is the case you need to state it clearly. If this is not the case, can you please explain “I’m not looking for a logicthe Arduino’s analog inputs have a bit ADC that gives for 0V-5V, respectively” in this context.

IF you are talking about DC levels the question is still unclear. An AC signal will be centred on the DC bias point. This is relatively fixed with signal strength. Let’s break that circuit down. First of all the part with the microphone.

Imagine that there is nothing else but the below schematic: The transistor will amplify these small changes so they can be viewed easily: I understand most of that, thank you. Ehryk Nope, the output will be somewhere between 0 and 5V. If you take a car siren and put it near the electret microphone, it will be a sine transitor from transisor a peak to peak amplitude of 5Vpp with a frequency of about Hz. Have a look at this.

When there is a whisper, the peak to peak amplitude will be about 1Vpp with changing frequency because of the speech. That means it will go to 1V and come back to 0V. However, my comment above ignores the DC offset.

Wouldn’t the capacitor do just that, if I then somehow reversed the negative portion of the wave and then smoothed it some? Ehryk Yes, you can add an output capacitor and an envelope detector. With the right component values, you will be able to have an analog voltage 2n30094 depending on the sound amplitude.

However, I am not sure of this. After getting results, just make transitor if-else condition in the software transisotr on the ADC value that you read. Felice Pollano 5 Then what is the simplest non-IC non-inverting amplifier irrespective of class or common-emitter?

Note that you could add a second inversion transisor this instance by simply interchanging R1 and the microphone. However inverting or not will NOT solve the stated problem – generating a logic 1 or 0 depending on the loudness. I’m not looking for a logicthe Arduino’s analog inputs have a bit ADC that gives for 0V-5V, respectively. Can you give circuit diagram for this?
