This article briefly describes the Peak Indicator (BC550C). This principle is easy to understand, but also very practical. Depth understanding of circuit elements, can be more effective to grasp this principle. Do you know the circuit, for example, can understand and buy these components: BC550C .

Small, portable and experimental circuit, Simple unit

A simple circuit, peak indicator of tops of musical signal. Each time where the level of signal exceeds the level 4dB, turns on led D1. It is useful in each channel of console of sound, in final amplifiers or in that other application, to we needed. With the prices of circuit, the indicate begins with levels above 4 dB (1.25V rms). For adaptation in different levels of signal, we can use a trimmer, before capacitor C1.
