Digital FM Transmitter Circuit (Schematic + PCB + Code) 😊


Without a doubt, FM transmitter and Receiver are among the top favorite electronic project topics, however, building a digital FM transmitter can be a challenging project for electronics enthusiasts. The transmitter can then be connected to a source of audio, such as a phone or computer, to broadcast music or other audio content.

In this project, I have introduced a compact digital FM transmitter circuit that operates in the frequency range of 87MHz to 108MHz. The frequency can be adjusted using two tactile push-buttons, with a 0.1MHz step size. The heart of the circuit is an ATMega8 microcontroller, which communicates with a 0.96-inch SPI OLED display and the KT0803L FM transmitter chip via an I2C interface. You can directly connect a microphone or an AUX cable to the board to broadcast your desired sound, such as playing a piece of music from your cellphone, computer, … etc. After conducting some tests, it was found that the circuit operates quite stable, and the received sound is clear and sharp.

To design the schematic and PCB, I used Altium Designer 23 and shared the project with my friends to get their feedback and updates using Altium-365. The fast component search engine (Octopart) allowed me to quickly consider components’ information and also generate the BOM. To get high-quality fabricated boards, I sent the Gerber files to PCBWay. I am confident that utilizing this circuit will be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for you.
