Cellphone Detector Mobile Bug
This handy, pocket-size mobile transmission detector can sense the presence of an activated mobile phone from distance of one and- a half meters. So it can be used to prevent the use of mobile phones in examination halls, confidential rooms, etc. It is also useful for detecting the use of mobile phone for spying and unauthorized video transmission.
Things which you can learn:
*Working of CA3130 as current to voltage converter.
*Application of transistor as an amplifier.
*Application of NE555 as an amplifier.
Build yourself a mobile detecting bug and become an expert in finding out hidden mobile phones in sensitive areas like LPG godown etc.
The circuit can detect both the incoming and outgoing calls, SMS and video transmission even if the mobile phone is kept in the silent mode.The circuit uses a 0.22μF disk capacitor (C3) to capture the RF signals from the mobile phone.The disk capacitor along with the leads acts as a small gigahertz loop antenna to collect the RF signals from the mobile phone.
Op-amp IC CA3130 (IC1) is used in the circuit as a current-to-voltage converter with capacitor C3 connected between its inverting and non-inverting inputs.
When the mobile phone signal is detected by C3, the output of IC1 becomes high and low alternately according to the frequency of the signal as indicated by LED1. This triggers monostable 555timer.
