Hi there, today we will be learning how to make an audio amplifier using SMD version of LM386. We will look at the datasheet info, the circuit diagram in EagleEDA, then the PCB in Eagle EDA and finally the actual hardware. It will be a complete DIY with circuit and PCB descriptions and information everything included.Necessary files are also given at respective steps
Prerequisites: Analog Circuits, familiarization with PCB and circuit analysis, reading datasheet, .
So lets not waste any more time and directly jump at the circuit info.
