LC filter combination for 19mhz signal
Am trying to build a stereo decoder for my Leak Troughline II tuner, using the following circuit diagram at:
My problem is there is no L C combination shown on the diagram. I have worked out that if I use a
1mh inductor I can use a 17.5nf cap:
If L, is 1milliHenry, then
C = 1 / ( L* ((Fo * 2 * pi )^2))
= 1 / (0.001 *( (19000 * 2 * 3.14 )^2))
= 17.5 nanoFarads
but am not sure, my maths insn't great. Also could I use a 20nf cap with 20% tolerance to get the 17.8 - 22.2 nf range I need with the 1mh inductor?
Has anyone out there created this circuit? If so what combo did you use, if you used one.
I have also heard that I could use an RC filter instead of an LC filter, and this would be easier. Any help here would be appreciated.
Sorry I meant to say 19Khz not 19mhz.
1 mH and 70 nanoFarads will resonate the circuit at 19 kHz.
Below is a plot of the filter.
Thanks very much Frank
The 1mh 70nf LC filter assumes less then 1% tolerance in order to resonate at 19Khz.
The capcitor I have has is 68nf with a tolerance of 5% (anywhere from 64nf to 71nf ) and so does the 1mh choke.
Is there any way I can gurantee 19khz, perhaps using a smaller capacitor value, trimmer etc.
I appreciate any advice you can give.
