Over the last few videos I have highlighted helpful circuits. In this video, I highlight an active filter setup utilizing an operational amplifier. Filters are very helpful when working with analog signals.  Often the range of frequencies needed are not across the entire band, therefore you need to filter out... Read more »

Building upon my last video, I’ve decided to make a simple circuit using some op-amps.  One is the general op-amp LM741. The other is a specific op-amp, LM386, that is designed for audio amplification. This circuit can be used to amplify microphones or be used as a circuit sniffer depending... Read more »
