Digital Volume Control

Posted on Jul 10, 2012

This digital volume control has no pot to wear out and introduces almost no noise in the circuit. Instead, the volume is controlled by pressing UP and DOWN buttons. This simple circuit would be a great touch to any home audio project.

C1=0.1uf Ceramic Disc Capacitor U1=DS1669 Digital Pot IC (See Notes) S1, S2=Momentary Push Button Switch MISC=Board, Wire, Socket For U1 Notes: 1. U1 is available from Dallas Semiconductor. 2. S1 turns the volume up, S2 turns it down. 3. The input signal should not fall below -0.2 volts. 4. Using a dual polariity power supply (+-5V works fine) will cure most clipping problems. You will have to check the data sheet for the correct pins to connect your voltages.
