5W PLL FM Transmitter (PIC16F627A)

The transmitter includes RDS/SCA input and Audio/MPX input with optional preemphasis. It can be used with or without stereo encoder. Tuning over the FM band is provided by two buttons that control dual-speed PLL. The transmitter can work also without the LCD display. Some experience with building devices of this kind are highly recommended. After complete parts placement: Check that there are no shorts bridging adjacent tracks or pads. Check electrolytic capacitors polarity and semiconductor parts orientation. Make any duty load and connect it temporarily to the antenna connector. Use for example 2 or 3 bulbs (24V/170mA or 24V/3W) in parallel.
5W PLL FM Transmitter (PIC16F627A) - schematic

For 0.05 MHz tuning step a 3.2 MHz crystal is required. In other case a 6.4 MHz crystal will make good work (tuning step 0.1 MHz). Any other crystal cannot be used. Wind all coils (except the L2) by a 0.8 mm wire. The Y1 package must be tied to ground! Make sure the Q3 terminals are as short as possible (about 2-3 mm above board). The 2N3553 case/heatsink can't be tied to ground! Be careful when soldering smd capacitors! To make the TR1 transformer, use specified number of turns on primary side and one turn on secondary side. The secondary wire should be quite thick but the primary can be as thin as you want. Wind on a 2-hole ferrite (material 61 or N1).
