Extending the Arduino-Based Tube Power Amplifier Controller
In the February 2015 issue of audioXpress, Mark Driedger discussed a tube power amplifier controller based on the Arduino open-source microcontroller. In this follow-up article, Mark Driedger explains how to use some of the Arduino’s untapped capabilities to incorporate the bias meter into the amplifier controller with virtually no additional hardware. A temperature sensor and over-temperature shut-down capability are also included. This article was originally published in audioXpress, May 2015.
