Project 18 out of 18
Make a device that allows you to listen to local radio stations.Order Now
In this final project in the Electronics Course, combine all the skills and concepts that you’ve learned throughout the past 17 projects to make an FM Tuner. This device will let you listen to local radio stations, program your favorite station as a preset, and scan the airwaves for new radio stations. First, learn how radios work, using frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM) to add information to a carrier signal. Next, assemble your hardware step-by-step, and then bring your components to life by writing a code with new commands and functions. After your FM Tuner is done and you’ve found some new music to listen to, complete the extra exercises to give your device more capabilities. These challenges are very tricky and will force you to use what you’ve learned. But don’t worry—you’re an electronics expert now!
What you'll receive in the FM Tuner project kit:
FM Tuner Module
3.5mm Audio Cable
220Ω Resistor (3)
Push Button (2)
Push Button Cap (2)
Jumper Wires M-M: 20cm (10, 2 extra)
Jumper Wires M-M: 10cm (9, 2 extra)
While this may be the last project in the Electronics Course, you’re not done unlocking new concepts and skills.
