Enabling the IoT with the Intel Edison development platform

The Intel Edison development platform is designed to lower the barriers to entry for
Product Designers to rapidly prototype and produce "Internet of Things" (IoT) and
wearables computing products. This on-demand webinar provides an opportunity to learn
about Edison, development tools and IoT applications

Here are some DIY FM Transmitter circuits that we have been published on This do-it-yourself fm transmitters are pretty easy to build and
will give you a good feeling when youll hear the music on the radio receiver.
Dont forget to write your comments and post some links if you know good designs that
are not in the best of list.

Best of Do-it-yourself FM Transmitters

1W FM Transmitter with 4 transistors
This FM transmitter circuit uses four radio frequency stages: a VHF oscillator built around
transistor BF494 (T1), a preamplifier built around transistor BF200 (T2), a driver built
around transistor 2N2219 (T3) and a power amplifier built around transistor 2N3866

FM transmitter with MAX2606

Maxim now has available a series of five integrated oscillator building blocks in the
MAX260x series which cover the frequency range between 45 and 650 MHz. The

MAX2606 covers the VHF band, although the frequency can only be varied by
approximately 3 MHz around the midrange frequency set by the coil L.

SMD FM Transmitter
Lets construct a low-power FM transmitter using surface-mount devices (SMD) that will
be received with a standard FM radio. Soldering surface mounted devices is not so hard
and actually is quite easy. The figure below shows the schematic of the transmitter which
consists of two stages: an oscillator and an output amplifier. Modulation is from an
electret microphone but you can use a low power audio source.

FM Bug Transmitter
Take a look at this fm spy transmitter which can be used as a bug transmitter or as fm
bug too. It uses a single IC 74F13, one coil, a capacitor, one trimmer, one resistor and
ofcourse one electret mic. This spy bug is so easy to build and can give you a total
coverage range of about 3 to 5 meters. You may want to use a small 100mW amplifier to
give a little extend transmission range so you can spy from other location.

USB FM Transmitter
A simple USB FM transmitter that could be used to play audio files from an MP3 player or
computer on a standard VHF FM radio by connecting it to an USB port. The circuit use no
coils that have to be wound. This USB transmitter can be used to listen to your own
music throughout your home.

Long range FM transmitter

This is very stable, harmonic free, long range fm transmitter circuit which can be used
for fm frequencies between 88 and 108 MHz. It has a very stable oscillator because you

use LM7809 stabilizer which is a 9V stabilized power supply for T1 transistor and for
frequency adjustment that can be achieved by using the 10K linear potentiometer. The
output power of this long range rf transmitter is around 1W but can be higher if you use
transistors like KT920A, BLX65, BLY81, 2N3553, 2SC1970, 2SC1971.

1 watt fm transmitter
A very good 1 watt fm transmitter circuit, very easy to build circuit. It has 4 transistors,
one is a very stable oscillator, followed by a buffer stage to prevent frequency variation
when you adjust the transmitter. Next is a resonance stage and the final stage built with
a minimum 1W transistor which must have a heatsink.

Low power fm transmitter

This low power transmitter is designed to use an input from another sound source and
transmits on the commercial FM band. This low power fm radio transmitter it is actually
quite powerful

BA1404 stereo FM transmitter

BA1404 is a IC designed for fm mini stereo transmitters. It can be used as a pc fm
transmitter, ipod fm transmitter, mp3 transmitter or even car fm transmitter because it
has a small pcb dimension ( can fit anyplace ) and maximum 3V power supply.

fm radio broadcasting. i find this of great intrest.and inlightment and easy to

understand.i never thought it was so intresting.thank you.i want to make a fm radio
broadcasting transmiter.for commuity radio station i understand not to transmit untill
iv been to ofcom and got myself a liceance.any help would be greatfull.r.w.pountney.

alexpmgr8 on February 23, 2012 at 3:23 am


Where to begin r.w.pountney .. Do you want to make a printed pcb ? how far
do you need it to go ? let me know what your criteria is and i will get back to
you with some bright ideas.

anderson on May 23, 2011 at 9:02 am


wow thanks for all the circuit design. can you send some more info abt the long range
FM transmitter especialy its block diagram. thank you very much

ameer on June 27, 2011 at 4:50 pm


dear sir
can you tel me that which is ft the mic in f m bug circuit

alexpmgr8 on November 25, 2011 at 11:34 am


great bug V5:

great transmitter pages inc. stereo and limiters for you budding
broadcasters :
great miscilaneous pages : for learners and experienced

transmissions are illegal check ur countries laws
great advice : if you are thinking about becoming a pirate use a link transmitter that
the radio authorities cant intercept. U may need a couple of throw away computers

and internet connections could always come in handy too

just a note, i have read all the posts. there are some of you that will need to make a
UV light boxs and get the relavent bits and bobs (again see or try and
get some pressnpeel circuit print/b/w laser printer needed. A drill stand is also pretty
use full. RF circuitry is fickle, its not hard if you have some idea of radio building
principles tho.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have been leafing through the information on this page, and I
find myself accosted with terrible english. This page is rife with grammatical discord,
verbal variance, and overall poor vocabulary. I appreciate the assistance those with
knowledge are attempting to give those without, but I beg of you, run your posts
through spellcheck before finally posting. I dont want to complain about scraping
instead of scrapping, having an its and its discussion, tell people you cant get a
lysanse for anything, to be more specific instead of pacific, etc. Your point may be
correct, but your improper use of the very language you use makes you seem a fool.
Invest the time to learn a more full control of your language, youll notice people
regarding you as far more intelligent, you will stand out.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this post and hope I didnt convey myself as a
self-righteous jerk.

josh on September 24, 2012 at 6:35 pm


English is clearly Not their First language Get Over It ! atleast they are trying,
how many languages do you speak fluently ?

johny radio on July 12, 2014 at 11:18 pm

Thats grammatically incorrect: its a run-on sentence.

know this try equivalent

iheanyi akoma on July 31, 2015 at 8:43 pm


which type of antenna will you use for it

manikrishnan on August 31, 2015 at 6:56 pm


BA1404 circuit attracted me.

What are the different advantages of r.f. output taken from an emitter or from a
collector of an Oscillator Stage Transistor?

D.K.Lourembam on December 8, 2015 at 6:11 pm


There are so many F.M. Transmitter Circuit Diagrams in this website but no one
indicate Bias Voltage and Collector current regarding with these Circuit Diagrams. Why
? . I think that a Transistor Circuit- Biasing Voltage and its Collector Current(Ic) is the
most important factor for any electronic amplifier(Class AB, B, and C).I mostly wanted
to know the Biasing Method of Class C Amplifier of any R.F. Transmitter. There are so
many techniques of Biasing of a class C Amplifier i.e. Signal Bias, External Bias and
Self Bias. Which one is the best for Class C r.f. Amplifier ?
