IC Radio

This circuit is similar to the other radios you have built, except that it uses the IC (Integrated Circuit). ICs are widely used in radios, TVs, digital clocks, calculators, etc, and make it possible to build more compact units with better performance.

You can see from the Schematic on the Kit's 'breadboard', that this small IC can take the place of 8 other components (3 Transistors and 5 Resistors).

In this project the IC is used as an amplifier, but ICs can be built and used for almost any function in electronics.

Follow the same instructions for the Antenna and Ground connections, as you did in the other radio circuits.

By the way, can you identify the 'tank circuit' and 'detector' in this radio circuit?
