OTA - AS3080ED, Linearizing Diodes, Alfa, SOIC-8
The AS3080ED is Alfa’s version of the CA3080 IC in an SOIC package. The AS3080ED is a gain block which is the operational-transconductance-amplifier (OTA). The AS3080ED has differential input and a single-ended, push-pull, class A output. Amplifier bias input may be used either for gating or for linear gain control. High output impedance and transconductance (gM) is directly proportional to the amplifier bias current (IABC). Linearizing diodes are provided at the inputs to reduce distortion and allow higher input levels. The result is a 10-dB signal-to-noise improvement referenced to 0.5 percent THD.
The AS3080ED is notable for it’s high slew rate (50V/µs), which makes it especially useful for multiplexer and fast unity-gain voltage followers.

Op-Amp - µA741, Single, Offset Null, 8-Pin DIP
µA741 single op amp in an 8-pin DIP package. The µA741 device is a general-purpose operational amplifier featuring offset-voltage null capability. The high common-mode input voltage range and the absence of latch-up make the amplifier ideal for voltage-follower applications. The device is short-circuit protected and the internal frequency compensation ensures stability without external components. A low-value potentiometer may be connected between the offset null inputs to null out the offset voltage. Features
  • Short-Circuit Protection
  • Offset-Voltage Null Capability
  • Large Common-Mode and Differential Voltage Ranges
  • No Frequency Compensation Required
  • No Latch-Up

Wire - Weico, 24AWG Stranded, Top Coat Pre-Tinned, 300V, 50 feet
Colors Available:
High quality 24AWG wire from Weico featuring a topcoat of solder over the strands. This wire is pre-tinned in the sense that a coating of solder is already applied, bonding the individual strands together so no additional tinning is required. This wire is ready to go as soon as it is cut and stripped making assembly that much easier. Rated at 300V and offered in a variety of colors, this wire is a great option for a variety of different projects.

PCB - Panel Mount Adapter, 9mm Vertical Potentiometer
Package of 5
Small PCB adapter boards to convert PCB mount 9mm vertical pots to wired panel mount pots. These adapters are great for tight builds allowing for more densely populated panels than 16mm options. They’re also a great way to incorporate sealed potentiometers into builds where larger sized options would be cost prohibitive.

Diode - Zener, 5 Watt, ±5% tolerance
5W zener diodes that are great for use in tube amps. These are commonly used to drop B+ voltages for tube modification compatibility or to create low power modes for the amp. A zener is a semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.
