Audio Graphic Equalizer Circuit

Audio Graphic Equalizer Circuit

This is a project circuit for audio equalizer. This circuit is control by single chip op amps. This is the figure of the circuit;

A gyrator is a circuit using active devices and transistors to simulate an inductor. In this case the gyrator is the transistor acting with R1, R3 and C2. It could just as easily be a unity gain op-amp (which gives superior performance). The circuit includes three formulae: one which gives f, the centre frequency of the band. The second shows how the Q is related to the capacitor ratio. The third shows the impedance presented by the circuit. Note that this includes 3 terms, the first purely resistive, the second is the capacitive contribution from C1 and the third is an inductive term from the gyrator.
