Solid state Tesla coil

Created on 21 Nov 2016

Play audio on a Tesla coil

Control a Tesla coil to play music and audio files. Preprocess the audio file into a series of tones that can be played on the Tesla coil. The device will feature solid state control using an H bridge to control the current through the primary coil instead of the traditional spark gap.
