    Simple

    Connect it to a telephone line.
    A epabx will also do

    You need to feed it two sinewave frequencies, one from the lower group and one from the upper group of 4 frequencies simultaneously and verify the correct 4-bit result at the digital decoded output of the chip. Depending on the chip type, you may need to take the 2 dB +/- 1 dB signal level difference into account.

    Good luck !

    DTMF CHECK

    Which DTMF IC do you use?

    You can connect it with a MT8888 to check if it transmit/receive right or wrong.

    Re: DTMF CHECK

    Hi,
    Have alook at this site : http://www.electronicsforu.com/EFYLi.../CI-2-DTMF.pdf .
    What ever numbers you dial from the phone, should show up on the LEDs.
    Regards,
    Laktronics

    Re: DTMF CHECK

    Hi,
    I just remebered, your 5V supply should not have a safety earth connection, since telephone line is already earthed through +ve of the battery. I don't have the May Issue, you may get it from their site?
    Regards,
    Laktronics

    Have you made a test board?
    If you have, it's so easy.

    Connect your phone line to the input of 8870. Call from other phone. Hook up the phone which connect with 8870. Then press some numbers from the caller phone. If your test board can receive what you press , it's working well. That's all.

    Regards.
