Voltage Controlled Voltage Sources (VCVS) - Power a Piezo Buzzer

Not open for further replies.


New Member
Hi, I am trying to power a Piezo Buzzer between 3.3VDC and 5VDC.
The voltage is being adjusted so the sound is low (at 3.3VDC) and loud(at 5VDC).
My attachment can be a little misleading. Alarm_low doesn't suggest the volume is low, just the number of beeps. Same holds true for Alarm_medium and Alarm_high.

I'm trying to figure a way to add a circuit like a Voltage Controlled Voltage source as observed in my attachment. Can anyone offer some advice?

An OpAmp (with suitable feedback) is the ultimate Voltage Controlled Voltage source. Some power opamps will drive up to several Amps at up to +-35V.

So, you want to do 2 things. Change the number of beeps and emit them at high volume or low volume.
Do you have another control line?
