8-Channel DTMF Link: Encoder

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The signal is encoded as a pair of sine waves, ensuring that no frequency is a multiple of the other and the sum and difference between two frequencies does not match any single tone and that`s why DTMF sounds so ugly!T he DTMF encoder circuit show n here is based on the HT9200B tone generator device produced by Holtek and distributed by Futurlec (. com) among others. The encoder is complemented

by a decoder elsew her e in this publication. The HT2900B is supplied as a nice old fashioned 14-pin device. It can be instructed by a microcontroller to generate 16 dual tones and (in serial mode only) 8 single tones from the DTMF pin output. It s 8 - pin younger brother` the HT9200A provides a serial mode only whereas the HT9200B contains a select-able serial/parallel mode interface for various applications such as security systems, home automation, remote control through telephone lines, communication systems, etc. A 74HC148 8-to-3 priority encoder is used to convert the keypad` information from S1 S8 into 3-bit tone selection words the HT9200B wants to see at its input. The ninth switch, S9, is connected to input D3 on the encoder chip. Pressing one of the switches S1 S8 generates a complementary 3-bit binary word at outputs A0, A1, A2 of IC1. IC2 then generates the dual tones accordingly to these binary codes. Pressing S1 S8 generates the dual tones for DTMF digits C, B, A, #, *, 0, 9 and 8. By pressing and holding down S9 the DTMF digits 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and D are generated. To generate the eight single frequencies accurately a 3. 58 MHz crystal quartz is connected to pin 2 and 3 of IC2. Pin 13 of the HT9200B supplies a DTMF signal of about 150 mV at a 5 KO load.
