Foxtrot sent us the first few prototypes. This is done with plain transistor circuits as well: Let that sink in — it was an assembler used to program the PIC16 architecture with completely different instructions.

Speedup capacitor and resistor C1 and R2 may be difficult to use without drawing too much current, so if I were creating a circuit board, I would keep them dataeheet my design as an insurance policy, but I would probably leave them unpopulated.

When the transistor collector-to-emitter voltage drops to the point where the base-collector junction becomes forward-biased, this stores additional charge. My company did have a lot of expertise in medical design, but not high-volume manufacturing, so we worked with the contract manufacturer.

Three or four decades ago, datasueet you mentioned transistors, the implication was that you were probably talking about bipolar transistors rather than MOSFETs.

The third lesson is to get your datashet straight. Life gets even more complex when you are dataaheet current constrained – putting loads of LED current in only helps if its not limited. And every so often, they find a niche usage in your circuits. Receive a notification when Jason Sachs publishes a new article: And good designers knew how to make use of them.

The exposure of light onto the phototransistor essentially acts in place of the normal base current. On the bottom of the circuit board, there were some 18 AWG jumper wires.

If the empty row is between circuit nodes that are sensitive to capacitive coupling like the Miller effect between base and collector of a transistor, or an input node and a noisy nodetie the row in between to a static voltage e. Without that resistor, the only way for charge to get pulled out of the base is via the base-emitter current, and it takes a while to decay.

43n5 Changing flux induced a circulating dataasheet in the ground plane, that caused extra power losses. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: Keep collector impedance low, reduce magnitude of switching. As a result, excess current flowed in the inductor, and it went into saturation and overheated.

One trick to reduce this impact on critical circuit nodes used in solderless breadboards, is to leave an empty row between each circuit node. Collector current equals base current times beta. The Fairchild datasheet for the 4N35 series actually gives some useful characterization graphs involving base-emitter datashet for example: Foxtrot out of the picture, and I took over the software design as well, learning SPASM because it was too difficult to convert the code to the native Microchip assembly instructions without the risk of introducing new errors.

All these things mean that you need to have lots of CTR margin: Keep the base-collector junction datashet saturating. The voltage gain between base and collector causes an effective multiplication of capacitance seen at the base.

The moral of this story… well, there are several lessons here. Sign in Sign in Remember me Forgot username or password? Circuit Design Analog Circuits Optimization. Think about that for a bit. Keep base-collector junction from saturating. And lucky me, all of us were in different states. Another technician and I looked closer, and we found that the thermal reliefs on some of the vias were the culprit.

On the daasheet side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems.

Hi Jason, thanks for another great article – I’ve enjoyed all your embedded related articles so far! Sachs, all rights reserved.

If you use an op-amp as a comparator, when the output goes high or low, and the inputs stray apart from each other, the op-amp saturates, and it may take a long time to come out of saturation.


He said some of the connections on the circuit board had been open-circuited. The first technique listed above, pushing charge in or pulling charge out, is possible to use as well. A 2N equivalent is fine for Q2. Whereas the cheapest optoisolators are the LTV and EL at just under 10 cents each in piece quantity.

Foxtrot used a PIC16C72 microcontroller to handle datasheeet communications. In fact, if I want to send a high-speed digital signal across a voltage isolation barrier, I would probably not use optoisolators, but instead something like the Si or SiBB or ISOCwhich are actually based on capacitive coupling, rather than optoelectronics.

The year before, I was assigned responsibility for a dqtasheet charger in a medical device, and I designed and built some prototype chargers around some power supply modules from Vicor. Circuit designers typically use a Schottky diode clamp or a technique called the Baker clamp to keep the collector in an NPN transistor just above the saturation voltage.

R1 and R4 are the basic resistors setting input current and output load.

This means that a lower voltage gain, due to a lower load impedance at the collector, will raise the bandwidth of the transistor. It turns out that there actually are optoisolators which give us access to the base terminal. The third technique listed above, keeping the base-collector junction from saturating, is possible to use, if we connect a Schottky diode from base to collector; this keeps the datashee from going more than about 0.

I worked on one project where we used 6 oz.

So we pulled off another layer, and there was some more rot, and then we pulled off a few more layers and it was okay again. Nowadays the semiconductor industry has overwhelmingly switched to CMOS, not only for digital logic and microprocessors, but also for analog and power semiconductors, primarily because of its low static power utilization.

Foxtrot to give us some information about how the code worked. And some of the circuit boards had some problems
