The SAB6456 description
The SAB6456 is a prescaler for UHF/VHF tuners. The circuit has an input frequency range of 70 MHz to 1 GHz, has high input sensitivity and good harmonic suppression. With lower sensitivity it's usable down to 3 MHz.
The circuit comprises an input amplifier, a divider stage and an output stage. The divider stage may oscillate during no-signal conditions but this oscillation is suppressed when input signals are received. The voltage-edges of the output signals are slowed internally to reduce harmonics in the television intermediate frequency band.
Printed circuit board
There are two pin connection versions of the SAB6456. In the schematic diagram there is drawn a standard pin connection as provided by Philips datasheet. The PCB is proposed for both versions.

Pira CZ 5W PLL FM Transmitter

posted under , , by Bayu NGKA | Edit This
Easy to build high-quality PLL FM transmitter with typical output power of 5 W and no-tune design.

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.

Following table shows typical output power at 90 MHz for different power supply voltages and output stage transistors.

Additional information
For 0.05 MHz step tuning a 3.2 MHz crystal is required. In other case a 6.4 MHz crystal will make good work (step tuning 0.1 MHz).
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!
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). The picture explains it all:

Alternatively use two ordinary ferrite beads placed side-by-side, something like on the picture:

Be careful when forming the 2SC1971 terminals - you may corrupt its internal structure! Or leave the terminals straight and use another suitable heatsink.

Control software for U3
The software for U3 is provided for download here: plltsa.zip (version 1.3). Please read included license text first.
Suitable free PIC programmer is for example here: http://www.members.aon.at/electronics/pic/picpgm/. Actually Pira CZ does not provide the PIC programming or complete kit sale for this device.
Software modifications included: pll64.hex - 6.4 MHz crystal, pll32.hex - 3.2 MHz crystal, pll.asm - for any changes.
Fuses: WDT: Enabled, OSC: INTRC-I/O, MCLRE: I/O.

Use the buttons to set the frequency. After a few seconds of idle the frequency is tuned and stored to EEPROM (icon of diskette). Finally the buttons are locked (icon of key) to avoid unwanted frequency changes. Unlock by pressing any button for a longer time.
The display and LED indicate PLL in-lock state. This state is also provided at pin 1 of U3. It can be used for control of additional power amplifier. When in-lock state is indicated, the PLL is switched to low speed for maximally flat low audio frequencies response.
Placing in operation
tx4bulbs.jpg (16218 bytes)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 (see the picture).

Start with smaller power supply voltage, for example 9 V. The bulbs should glow a little. Then it's OK and you may increase the power supply voltage to 12 V. Adjust C18 to max. output power. Adjust right LCD contrast by R23.
Now the L1 coil must be adjusted by stretching or compressing the turns. It affect frequency position of the band, which is the PLL able to tune.
Tune to 107.9 MHz using the buttons.
Measure tuning voltage at Q4 collector. Set the tuning voltage to 8.0 V by adjusting the L1.
Then you are done.

Now tune to 105 MHz and adjust C18 to max. power finally. At this point use about 10 meters of coaxial cable between the transmitter and the duty load!
If you have a problem with stability/spurious oscillations (very improbably if you used standard components and procedures), you may:
decrease R7 or R9 value
increase R8 value
decrease power supply voltage
use another material for TR1

If you want to change the output power, you may do it by changing the R8 value. Don't use smaller values than mentioned in part list!
You may choose between single-sided PCB (only bottom layer) and double-sided PCB (+ ground layer on the top). The difference is in output power. The double-sided PCB gives higher output power (this fact is not so interesting in rf issue).

mini fm transmitter has a range of about 300-400 meters, when using a 9 volt voltage of the power scattered around 300 meters, and when using a voltage of 12 volt then reach around 400-450 meters, depending on the antenna in use.

For L1 and l2 twist it 5 times roll, you can use the pen cartridge to wind it so neat and after the finish remove the contents pen cartridge page. C5 is used for placement frequency. can tune in between 88-108 Mhz, to reach more use referrer antenna (yagi antenna).

List of components:
  • C1 = 0.001uf
  • C2 = 5.6pf
  • C3, C4 = 10uf / 16V (ELCO)
  • C5 = 3-18pf (Adjustable Cap)
  • R1 = 270 Ohm 1/4W
  • R2, R5, R6 = 4.7k 1/4W
  • R3 = 10K 1/4W
  • R4 = 100K 1/4W

  • L1, L2 = 5 Turn Air Core Coil
  • MIC = Electret Microphone
  • 9V Battery, PC Board, Wire For Antenna
This series can be arranged under the Frequency 88 Mhz 88 Mhz or above depending on our desires. Test transmitter must be repeated for coverage and that no signal fraction of the commercial broadcast radio or television station about the location.

Pira CZ Stereo Encoder for FM broadcasting

This stereo encoder is a halfway between analogue and digital processing. It combines the best from both domains to provide high-quality and easy to build device. The sampling frequency used in this stereo encoder is 97 times (!!!) higher than the pilot tone frequency. This makes very easy to reject all spectral residues around the sampling frequency without affecting the main signal characteristics. Using of a microcontroller allows to build this stereo encoder with reduced part count and get excellent results in real operation.

This stereo encoder advisedly does not contain any preemphasis circuit. Remember the key fact: a compressor/limiter/clipper device must be always present between the preemphasis circuit and the stereo encoder or modulator. Only this configuration ensures loud sound without exceeding the maximum frequency deviation limit (75 kHz). The stereo encoder is designed to provide really good sound. This always needs to use the compressor/limiter/clipper device where the preemphasis is precisely assured. The Pira CZ Compressor/Limiter/Clipper is highly suitable for this task.
Basic block diagram:

  • Signal overshooting prevention
  • Low noise and distortion
  • No adjust (only pilot tone level and output level)
  • High channel separation and spectral purity in common operation
  • RDS input and pilot sync. output makes easy to connect any RDS encoder

Adjusting elements description:

Pilot level adjustment: The pilot level should be set to 9 % of the total deviation (75 kHz), measured in peak-to-peak values. For example, if audio input level is 2 V pp, set the pilot tone level to 0.2 V pp (the adjustment is linear with the max. of about 0.5 V pp).
Output level (gain) adjustment tip: If possible, it's recommended to set high output level and adjust lower sensitivity on the transmitter/exciter rather than set low output level and adjust high sensitivity. This way gives getter S/N ratio. Is it clear?
Note: The output level adjustment has no effect on pilot-to-audio ratio.
Mode selection: Click and hold the button until the mode change is indicated by acoustic signal (number of beeps indicates the mode set). The device will remember the setting.
Mode table:
Mode 1 is the default and recommended. Mode 2 switches to monaural operation. Modes 3 to 5 can compensate transient characteristics in some cases and improve channel separation, but have no reason for nonspecialists.
Connection to the RDS encoder:
