KICAD 3: LM386 Amplifier With Bass Boost

After finishing the 3 component modules I wanted more of a challenge. I looked up the datasheet of the infamous LM386 audio opamp that is featured in many cheap audio applications.

Datasheets from IC’s like opamps often contain a ‘typical application’. These are circuits that show off the basic configuration of the IC or a simple implementation of the IC for various applications. For the LM386 I took the typical application for an audio amplifier with bass boost.



I took the schematic and remade it in KiCAD


Then I laid down the PCB



Also added a little silkscreen text to show who the creator is. The 3D render is pure art
