This handy cell phone detector, pocket-size mobile transmission detector can sense the presence of an activated mobile cell phone from a short distance. So it can be used to prevent use of mobile phones in examination halls, confidential rooms, etc. It is also useful for detecting the use of mobile phone for spying and unauthorized video transmission. The circuit can detect the incoming and outgoing calls, SMS and video transmission even if the mobile phone is kept in the silent mode. It senses the radio frequency (RF) transmissions from nearby cellular or mobile phones. If required, other sources of RF transmissions can also be detected including twoway radios, and other wireless communication devices. When a transmission is detected, an alarm sequence begins that may include any combination of visual LED glows. In addition the unit can be used as a static or portable detector, and it can be used to generate remote alarms, activate other equipment (including remote indication devices) and extend alarm messages into other areas. Cellular phone technology is rapidly changing. Features like Bluetooth, USB, high resolution cameras, microphones, Internet, 802.11 wireless, and memory cards are added every year. Also, the communication technology a cellular phone uses such as CDMA, GSM, 3G, and 4G are rapidly changing. Hence there is more chance for leaking of confidential matter. In order to avoid such leakage of information cell phone detectors are used.


1.1 Components Used In Cell Phone Detector:  ANTENNA  IC CA3130

1.2 Antenna:
The size and shape of the antenna and the way it's constructed determine the gain and directivity of the antenna. The antenna transmits and receives electromagnetic signals. When gain increases the amount of desired signal energy that can be captured Increase but the amount of environmental noise and interferences that's captured increases by the same amount. Antenna receives the radio frequency signals (RF signals) from the mobile phone. The radio frequency signals are grasped by the antenna. In the detection process we use a wire type antenna. An antenna (or aerial) is an electrical device which converts electric currents into radio waves, and vice versa. It is usually used with a radio transmitter or radio receiver. In transmission, a radio transmitter applies an oscillating radio frequency electric current to the antenna's terminals, and the antenna radiates the energy from the current as electromagnetic waves (radio waves). In reception, an antenna intercepts some of the power of an electromagnetic wave in order to produce a tiny voltage at its terminals that is applied to a receiver to be amplified. An antenna can be used for both transmitting and receiving.

They are good for displaying images because they can be relatively small. it starts sounding a beep alarm and the LED blinks. A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source.1 Applications of BC548 Transistor:    A common application for NPN transistors is to use then as switches in circuits.The moment the bug detects RF transmission signal from an activated mobile phone. electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device. LEDs are often small in area (less than 1 mm2). This effect is called electroluminescence and the colour of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy gap of the semiconductor.LED‟s contain an integrated multivibrator circuit inside which causes the LED to flash with a typical time period.5. It is an electronic device that lights up when electricity is passed through it. Another application for NPN transistors is to use them as an voltage amplifier. releasing energy in the form of photons. It can also be used as current amplifier. 1. LEDs are usually red.

3 to 10 cm. The transmission frequency of mobile phones ranges from 0. It is a CMOS version using gate-protected p-channel MOSFET transistors in the input to provide very high input impedance. Op-amp IC CA3130 (IC1) is used in the circuit as a current-to-voltage converter with capacitor C3 connected between its inverting and non-inverting inputs. So a circuit detecting gigahertz signals is required for a mobile bug.22μF disk capacitor (C3) to capture the RF signals from the mobile phone. The lead length of the capacitor is fixed as 18 mm with a spacing of 8 mm between the leads to get the desired frequency. Here the circuit uses a 0. very low input current and very high speed of performance. The output CMOS 15 .3: Circuit Diagram 2.2 Operation of Cell Phone Detector: An ordinary RF detector using tuned LC circuits is not suitable for detecting signals in the GHz frequency band used in mobile phones.

Assemble the circuit on a general purpose PCB as compact as possible and enclose in a small box like junk mobile case. Resistor R2 provides the discharge path for capacitor C4.transistor is capable of swinging the output voltage to within 10 mV of either supply voltage terminal. This capacitor creates a field. Carefully solder the capacitor in standing position with equal spacing of the leads.5 meters. The low-value timing components R6 and C9 produce very short time delay to avoid audio nuisance. As mentioned earlier. Capacitor C3 in conjunction with the lead inductance acts as a transmission line that intercepts the signals from the mobile phone. Capacitor C6 maintains the base bias of transistor T1 for fast switching action. the output of IC1 becomes high and low alternately according to the frequency of the signal as indicated by LED1. The unit will give the warning indication if someone uses mobile phone within a radius of 1. This will upset the balanced input of IC1 and convert the current into the corresponding output voltage. Capacitor C4 along with high-value resistor R1 keeps the non-inverting input stable for easy swing of the output to high state. Capacitor C5 (47pF) is connected across „strobe‟ (pin 8) and „null‟ inputs (pin 1) of IC1 for phase compensation and gain control to optimize the frequency response. Feedback resistor R3 makes the inverting input high when the output becomes high. stores energy and transfers the stored energy in the form of minute current to the inputs of IC1. This triggers monostable timer IC2 through capacitor C7. capacitor C3 should have a lead length of 18 mm with lead spacing of 8 mm. You may use a short telescopic type antenna. 16 . The response can be optimized by trimming the lead length of C3 for the desired frequency. When the mobile phone signal is detected by C3. Use the miniature 12V battery of a remote control and a small buzzer to make the gadget pocket-size.
