I am designing a circuit that implements an AM radio circuit that ultilises the IC Double mixer and Oscillator NE612. I was just wondering whether there is any standard symbol for this kind of IC.
mail from CM
There is no standard symbol for NE612, just a square box. You have to make a custom part in the CAD software or see if someone has done that. check these links on info of NE612 circuit and symbol….
GM47: Simple 30m Band QRP CW-Transceive
The Rx mixer is followed by a IF stage featuring an NE592. The mixer’s balanced output is directly connected to the amplifier’s differential input, minimizing component count at this point.
Direct Conversion Receiver using NE612 for HF Bands
The NE612 is an integrated circuit which contains a balanced mixer with its own on-board local oscillator and voltage regulator. The mixer can provide up to 18dB of gain at 45 Mhz, and the local oscillator will operate up to 200 Mhz.
HF Transceiver using NE612
I would be working on the Transverter first, as with this, I could try out the 9Mhz SSB Module that I already have. I would be building the Transverter for the 14 Mhz band depending on the values from my DC Receiver project using the NE612 IC
My Start as a Ham – Ralph’s Story – “I suppose my interest in things electrical began when at a very young age I poked a metal hairpin into an electrical outlet. To this day, I vividly remember the amazing flash and bang that resulted! Of course, I wanted to know why that happened. It was a few years more before I learned to read, and found out about electricity.”

All Mains Inlet Sockets should be Shuttered, so that such a thing does not happen again to any child again. Another Law, No Mains Socket should be less that 5 feet above the ground level.
Then we should all move to a 24V home voltage standard, Read more at my Tech blog..

Experimental KW HV Switching Power Supply
The design of switching supplies is a bit more involved than traditional “big iron” transformer power supplies. When taken step-by-step, however, it is quite possible for an amateur to design and build a working high power switching power supply. This article describes a high power, high voltage switch mode power supply designed to operate a KW level RF power amplifier.
Home brew Litz Wire
The Litz wire was fashioned by taking two parallel strands of #18 AWG wire about 115 feet long and twisting them together in a clockwise direction with an electric drill until the twisted wires had about two turns per inch. The twisted wire was then cut into four equal length and laid side by side.
Besides classical functions and dB conversions, RadioCalc includes a converter of Power to field strength commonly used for EMC/EMS test-set-up. Also impedance can be represented as a function of reflection coefficient (somehow like an electronic Smith-chart). This and many other functions are obtained by clicking into the arrow of the “Conversion off” window.
Radiocalc – Convertisseur Radio Universel
Thanks to RadioCalc the different dB charts are obsolete by computing the ratios of Power (W) or Voltages (V) according to dB = 10*log(P2/P1) ou dB = 20*log(V2/V1).
Just for a trial : type 100/10 (or just 10) and push the dB button as the ‘W’ mode is chosen, the result will be 10 dB, then choose the ‘V’ mode by clicking in the V button (in the Quick dB window) push again dB, the result is now 20 dB.

“I have been a licensed Ham Radio Operator since 1979. I enjoy chatting on Ham Radio everyday of my life. I have never grown tired of this wonderful hobby. It’s part of my everyday life. Radio in itself has been part of my whole life.
My other passion is playing the drums. I have been playing drums since 1974 and still enjoy gigging in and around the Tucson area. I have developed a drumming style that is solid and acurate.I play both acoustic and electric drums”
ARRLWeb – Amateur Radio Operators
ARRL is the national -USA membership association for Amateur Radio operators.
The seed for Amateur Radio was planted in the 1890s, when Guglielmo Marconi began his experiments in wireless telegraphy. Soon he was joined by dozens, then hundreds, of others who were enthusiastic about sending and receiving messages through the air–some with a commercial interest, but others solely out of a love for this new communications medium. The United States government began licensing Amateur Radio operators in 1912.
