LS1240A is a monolithic integrated circuit designed
to replace the mechanical bell in telephone sets in
connection with an electro-acoustical converter. It
can drive directly a piezoceramic converter (buzz-
er)or a dynamic loudspeaker.
The output current capability of LS1240A is higher
than standard ringer. For driving a dynamic loud-
speaker LS1240A can simply use a decoupling ca-
pacitor, thus eliminating the usual transformer.
No current limitation is provided on the output stage
of LS1240A, so a minimum load DC of 50 Ω is ad-
viced, in series with a proper capacitor.
The two tone frequencies generated are switched
by an internal oscillator in a fast sequence and made
audible across an output amplifier in the loud-
speaker, both tone frequencies and the switching
frequency can be externally adjusted.

The supply voltage is obtained from the AC ring sig-
nal and the circuit is designed so that noise on the
line or variations of the ringing signal cannot affect
correct operation of the device.
