This is a Simple IF AM signal generator circuit with, 455kHz output frequency. We use simple components, CMOS IC: CD4011, CD4040. And control fixed frequency using the crystal-3.579 MHz.
In the event of AM radio repairs. The basic tools that are usually found the IF signal frequency generator.
We will use it to determine the function of various sectors.
Which these circuits are often used transistors to build the frequency. But, now we will try to use an innovative circuit that used IC and crystal as the circuit below.
The circuit diagram of Simple IF signal frequency generator using CMOS
How it works
The working starting at IC1/1-IC1/3, R1-R2, C1-C2 and crystal are connected as the square wave frequency generators circuit. Which has a frequency of 3.579 MHz.
Then, this frequency will out to pin 10 of IC1/3, before in to pin 12 and pin 13, then out to pin 11 of IC1/4 is finally.

In the section of IC1/4 that see will be connected as a buffer circuit to serve as a buffer. between IC1/3 and IC2 Not interfere with each other.
Next, The frequency 3.579 KHz at IC1 will be connected to pin 10 of IC2 acts as the frequenct divider by value 2 to the power of three. (8).
Which this IC2 will have the ability to Division, Up to 2 are 12 (4096).
And, after dividing the frequency will be reduced to 447.4 KHz. Which error of the frequency 455 KHz is 2 percent out to pin 6 of IC2.

Then, it will pass the low pass filter circuit of 3 sets. To filter harmonics On leaving before will appears at the output for use.
By output will be a sine wave at load 10 Kohms will be size about 35 mVp-p.
How to build
This circuit is not used a lot of parts so can assemble on a universal PCB board.
Then, the wiring for circuit wiring and various components can view in the example in Fig below.
And, We should be careful about the polarity of the electrolytic capacitors correctly. Pin of the IC is not an error.
