Melody generator for greeting cards

This tiny circuit comprising of a single 3 terminal IC UM66 can be built small enough to be placed inside a greeting card and operated off a single 3V flat button cell.
There is not much to the circuit. The UM66 is connected to its supply and its output fed to a transistor for amplification. You can either use a 4ohm speaker or a ” flat” piezoelectric tweeter like the one found in alarm wrist watches.
 
If you use the piezo, then it can be connected directly between the output pin 1 and ground pin 3 without the transistor.
 
The UM66 looks like a transistor with 3 terminals. It is a complete miniature tone generator with a ROM of 64 notes, oscillator and a preamplifier. When it first came into market, it was programmed for the “Jingle bells” tune. Now they come with a wide variety of different tunes.
