LM386 Audio Amplifier Circuit

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The integrated chip LM386 is a low power audio frequency amplifier requiring a low level power supply (most often batteries). It comes in an 8-pin mini-DIP package. The IC is designed to deliver a voltage amplification of 20 without external add-on parts. But this voltage gain can be raised up to 200 (Vu = 200) by adding external parts. The extern

al parts shown on diagram 3. 1 can be selected to get the desired gain. Circuit A will give a voltage amplification of 200. Circuit B will give a gain around 50. The circuit C is not for voltage amplification but will raise the bass level by about 5 dB. Take note that the circuit C is to be connected between pins 1 and 5 of the IC.
