    UM3561 is an excellent ROM IC that can generate Multi siren tones simulating Police siren, Ambulance siren, Fire brigade siren and Machine gun sound. This 8 pin low power IC can work down to 2.4 volts.

    The UM 3561 is a low cost siren generator designed for use in toy applications. The IC has an inbuilt oscillator and tone selection pins. It is easy to make a siren generator with only a few external components. Only one external resistor and a speaker driver transistor are sufficient to make a simple siren generator.

    Inside the UM3561

    Inside the IC, there is an oscillator circuit and the frequency of oscillations is controlled by the external resistor connected to OSC 1(Pin 7) and OSC2 (Pin 8). A 220 K resistor will give satisfactory results. The oscillations thus generated will be then transferred to a control circuit which function based on the tone selection through the connections of SEL 1 (Pin 6) and SEL2 (Pin 1) . The control circuit passes the signal to an address counter and then to the ROM. The tone pulses thus generated will be available from the output pin 3. Since the sound is weak, an amplifier is necessary to get loud sound. A single NPN transistor will amplify the sound.

    Pin 1 Tone Sel.2
    Pin 2 Gnd
    Pin 3 Output
    Pin 4 NC- Used for testing purpose
    Pin 5 +3V
    Pin 6 Tone Sel .1
    Pin 7 Osc 1
    Pin 8 Osc 2

    Tone Selection

    By changing the pin connections of Sel.1 (Pin6) and Sel. 2(Pin 1) it is easy to change the siren tones.

    1. very good website
      thank you

    2. i need more about sound generetor desine

    3. see electronics for u for more no circuits.for this ic usage visit 312 circuit

      The above circuit has an error. It should have resistor between the speaker/battery and the zener diode/100u/pin 5.
      As it stands it will probably destroy the chip and the zener diode as there is no current limiter between the battery and the diode.

    5. sir, i wanna to sensor projects.

    6. too gud……… really helpfull… thanx for d infrmtn…..:)(

    7. Dont you think a resistor is needed before the zener?
