Default Alternative usage for LM3875

Hello! I was sitting here half bored until i came up with a idea, why not try to use them as a VSD (Variable Speed Drive) So i took a big transformer and hooked a secondary to the speaker outs on the 3875īs and the 230 primary to a fan and a motor. This is the result: http://hififorum.knaak.dk/Tekko/lm3875/ <-- 125Hz on the fas and over 600Hz on the motor using a function generator on the computer and the cassette deck as preamp. There is sound on both videos.

Hi Tekko,

Could you not pump those AVI's into some encoder and make it wmv or something...this way it takes 10 minites to download!


I converted your Video7.avi to video7.wmv from 27mb to 2 mb...quality of the wmw is lower ofcourse

If you can see the speaker cone move...it's not hifi.

I had an idea about using a +12V audio amp chip (TDA7350,or many others.) as a driver for a small 12V-120/240Vac inverter.Add another chip with a nice 50/60hz sine wave,and suitable power trannie(wired "backwards" for step-up)and you're set.Doesn't seem too complicated.Add a couple pots to set the freq and level (voltage out),maybe replace them with fixed reistors after you get it all dialed in.
You wouldn't be able to get a whole lot of power,maybe 25W? (unless you could parallel the chips?) but it might be handy for recharging phones,pda's,laptops?,running a small CFL light,etc from 12V sources.
But one bonus is that it has a sinewave output,none of that "modified squarewave" stuff.

This is controlled via the computers soundcard and a function generator. I could encode them but i donīt have a encoder.
