audio level meter circuit using lm3915

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

This is a simple design of audio level meter. This circuit uses just one IC and a very few number of external components. This circuit is based on LM3915 as controller in the operation of the audio level meter circuit. It displays the audio level in terms of 10 LEDs. This is the figure of the circuit. The input voltage can vary from 12V to 20V, bu

t suggested voltage is 12V. The LM3915 is a monolithic integrated circuit that senses analog voltage levels and drives ten LEDs providing a logarithmic 3 dB/step analog display. LED current drive is regulated and programmable, eliminating the need for current limiting resistors. The IC contains an adjustable voltage reference and an accurate ten-step voltage divider. The high-impedance input buffer accepts signals down to ground and up to within 1. 5V of the positive supply. Further, it needs no protection against inputs of 35V. The input buffer drives 10 individual comparators referenced to the precision divider. Accuracy is typically better than 1 dB.
