Simple and powerful F.M. Receiver

Communication in F.M. band is easy, less expensive and has many more advantage. As we have already published Simple F.M. transmitter circuit in previous article. Now, here is a circuit diagram with description of Powerful F.M. receiver using single IC used to receive frequency range of 88 MHz to 108 MHz in F.M. band. You can also use F.M. receiver  circuit in radio, tape recorder, stereo etc.

Circuit Description simple and powerful F.M. receiver

With the circuit described here (F.M. receiver) one can easily receive F.M. signal and is build around IC TEA5591 (IC1). Transmitted F.M. R.F. signal is received by telescopic antenna and is given to pin 2 of IC1 passes though band pass filter made from coil L2 and capacitor C4. R.F. signal given to IC1 is amplified and is tuned with the help of capacitors C9, C13 and coil L1. Coil L3 with capacitors C8 and C14 is configured as oscillator and its output is given to pin no 22 and 23 of IC1 in order obtain IF frequency by mixing with tuned R.F. frequency. Tuned IF frequency of 10.7 MHz is obtained from amplifier made from coil L4 and capacitors C10 & C11. Ceramic filter XT1 and XT2 is used to filter IF frequency and is given to pin no 4 of IC1. Internal detector stage is used to detect F.M. signal. Finally output from F.M. receiver is obtained from pin 11 and is given to audio amplifier stage.

    1. first u shoud buy all the equipments and then ask your professor how to do ?…the result will be that ur projecti sdone

  1. I feel this is among the so much vital info for me. And i’m glad studying your article. But wanna observation on few common issues, The site taste is wonderful, the articles is truly great : D. Just right activity, cheers

    1. how did make the project? can’t have a pcb layout because there’s no filter in my pcb wizard. We need to send the layout before we make the project.

  2. hi..
    i want to transmit pulses…
    for this purpose ur transmitter-reciever will work or not…..
    plz reply as soon as possible

  3. The alternatives for IC TEA5591 can be:


    And I am listing these IC’s based only on the basic function. Some of the IC’s number of Pins and Pin functions might not match exactly with ic5591 and thus might not be use \able with this circuit diagram.

  4. can i get tha values of inductor?
    and values for FM IFT.?
    FM IFT is not avilable in market so procedure to build that one??

    1. The construction of inductor is suggested in the part list , I have not recorded the exact value of the inductors while verifying the project but you should be able to measure it after building the inductor as suggested.
      And regarding the FM IFT we’ll soon post projects regarding IFT till then you can buy it from stores , If you are unable to find it in local stores try finding it online stores like this one:-

  5. can you give the values of inductors used in above circuit or which wire is to be used to design such coil please reply fast.

  6. Can I ask how will the PCB layout of this? In PCB Wizard. Or can I have a PCB layout oof this diagram beacause I cant make it. And how is the 50mV audio amplifier? Thanks.

  7. I bought a TEA5591 IC. But it has only 20 pins instead of 24 as in the given ckt diagram. Can my 20-pin IC be used in the above ckt. If yes plz help by showing the connections. Also my mail id is
    thanking you in advance. Waiting eagerly for your reply
