P-PC-LED-DRV PCB - LED Driver, for Pedals and Synths
This small PCB is a simple way to add an indicator light that pulses to the rate of LFOs and clocks used in pedals, synthesizers, and other equipment. Simply connect the positive supply voltage to V+, ground to GND, and the output of a positive signal (0 to V+) such as an LFO or clock to the IN pad. The trimmer can adjust how the LED reacts to the signal. Fully clockwise it will simply pulse on and off when paired with a strong signal. If the signal is a sine, triangle, or any other non-pulse type signal, adjusting the trimmer counter clockwise can dial in settings that follow the shape of the waveform, brightening and dimming with the changing voltage. For certain dual op-amp LFOs in effect pedals, the signal may not go low enough to turn the LED fully off.

P-Q-AS3080ED OTA - AS3080ED, Linearizing Diodes, Alfa, SOIC-8
The AS3080ED is Alfa’s version of the CA3080 IC in an SOIC package. The AS3080ED is a gain block which is the operational-transconductance-amplifier (OTA). The AS3080ED has differential input and a single-ended, push-pull, class A output. Amplifier bias input may be used either for gating or for linear gain control. High output impedance and transconductance (gM) is directly proportional to the amplifier bias current (IABC). Linearizing diodes are provided at the inputs to reduce distortion and allow higher input levels. The result is a 10-dB signal-to-noise improvement referenced to 0.5 percent THD.
The AS3080ED is notable for it’s high slew rate (50V/µs), which makes it especially useful for multiplexer and fast unity-gain voltage followers.
