Diode Compression Opamp PCB
« on: March 28, 2016, 06:33:46 AM »
Hey guys,

First post here. I saw the diode-compression opamp and decided to make a small PCB version. Here is an image:



I wanted to make the PCB such that it fits into a standard DIP-8 package so it can directly replace a TL071 style opamp.

So far I have just done simple tests and everything looks like its working well. I want to build up a tubescreamer clone soon and use this opamp.

I ordered the board through macrofab.com (I work as an engineer there). The whole board assembled cost less than $10 not including shipping. Assuming the tube screamer works out I have plans to make a second version that has two of these opamps so I can use it as a drop in replacement for the standard dual-style packages like the TL082 or NE4558.

This is really awesome, I intended to do a similar project years ago but never got around to it. I might suggest posting this on the main forum, otherwise nobody will ever see it.

How'd it go?  If you ever do the dual version, I may be interested in a few.

Same here.
