Life gets even more complex when you are heavily current constrained – putting loads of LED current in only helps if its not limited.

Optimizing Optoisolators, and Other Stories of Making Do With Less – Jason Sachs

The year was On the firmware side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems. He said some of the connections on the circuit board had been open-circuited.

On one side of the package, you put in current through the LED. The second round of prototypes were better, and he sent a few of them to us. Circuit Design Analog Circuits Optimization. Your writing style or is it your personality makes it an awesome read.

The fastest computers used bipolar transistors in emitter-coupled logic ECLand even the more garden-variety logic chips that had decent performance were S or AS with Schottky-clamped diodes. In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph: Good transistor drive circuits keep all three of these effects in mind, using essentially the following techniques: In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph:.


The idea is eatasheet you figure out the minimum amount of equivalent base current caused by light falling onto the phototransistor, and budget some of it towards flowing through the base-emitter resistor. A 2N equivalent is fine for Q2. Comments Write a Comment Select to add a comment [ – ]. The Fairchild datasheet for the 4N35 series actually gives some useful characterization graphs involving base-emitter resistance; for example:.

Foxtrot sent us the first few prototypes. This all makes a robust high speed opto design an ugly and complex process. Designs have to work first, and be inexpensive second.

In a plain transistor circuit as opposed to a phototransistorthe base current would come from a voltage through a resistor, and we could add parallel capacitance to daasheet resistor.

IC 4N35 Optocoupler

Oh, and you get an output enable pin for free. R1 and R4 are the basic resistors setting input current and output load. Foxtrot used a PIC16C72 microcontroller to handle the communications. The large manufacturers like Apple and Samsung and Dell are able to get cycle times down to the point where they can churn out a new product quickly and have it cheap enough to make a profit at high volumes. Whereas the cheapest optoisolators are the LTV and EL at just under 10 cents each in piece quantity.

And the deadline was getting closer… so we asked to look at the code itself. But we can help it turn off faster, by connecting a resistor between base and emitter.

It was a cost-cutting measure on a circuit board that needed to handle the current. The year before, I was assigned responsibility for a battery charger in a medical device, and I designed and built some prototype chargers around some power supply modules from Vicor.

This is done with plain transistor circuits as well: 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. The thickness of the copper plating in a printed circuit board is conventionally measured in ounces of copper used per square foot of board area: The second lesson is to make use of pre-existing economies of scale.

He likes making things spin. The battery requests a certain amount of current, and the charger is supposed to deliver up to that current. But this charger caused enough electromagnetic interference that it disrupted the communications, and it stopped and displayed a fault.

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. Introduction to Microcontrollers Mike Silva. So he changed it to one ounce copper.
