LM3915 VU METER PDF
Learn about and how to use the LM Logarithmic Dot/Bar If you’re wanting to make a VU meter, you should use the LM which we. You’ve saturated the input (SIG, pin 5) above the reference voltage (Rhi, pin 6). That’s why the only the topmost LED flickers in dot mode and all.

Ideally you should be running the audio signal through at least a rectifier, if not a proper peak detector. CharlieHanson 1, 4 Sign up or lm39115 in Sign up using Google. Now we are ready to move on and start building the infinity mirror.
So I connected GND of the 3. As i said, connecting audio jack changes nothing, but for instance if i grab GND and Signal with mi fingers, all of the LED’s light up for a short period of time.
So the glass and the housing that I used for this project are from a wall clock and I managed to find a suitable same size mirror. You can watch the following video or read the written tutorial below for more details.
Inside a huge PCB factory: We will start with the electronics part. Post as a guest Name. Sign up using Facebook.

My guess it scenario b. Now because 10 LEDs are just too less for a project like this, I made a little modification to circuit schematics. Once they are secured in place on top of them goes the mirror which is also secured using a glue gun.
Depending on the quality of the film and the amount of reflection it provides, the light will vi bouncing between the mirror and the glass but at the same time some of the light will escape through the glass.
That would be great Reply.

Next we need to solder all electronics components as described in the circuit diagram previously. After inserting all LEDs we need to solder all negative leads together and solder a separate wire to each positive lead.
If the audio source is your PC soundcard, and you’re powering the from an Arduino board which is in turn powered by the same PC’s USB power, you can’t guarantee the audio ‘ground’ is the same as the ‘ground’. At this point it can get a bit messy because of the many wires so you should be careful when connecting them.
If that still doesn’t help, you’ll just have to ‘manually’ reduce the input voltage between the cap and pin 5 with a simple voltage divider. For that purpose I used a 5mm tick Styrofoam but a cardboard or something like that can be also used.
