This will speed-up turn-off times. We talked a bit, and found out he was using a two-layer circuit board, which is a little bit sketchy when you are working on a switched-mode power supply; it makes proper management of electromagnetic noise either difficult datssheet impossible.

Good transistor drive circuits keep all three of these effects in mind, using essentially the following techniques: And more led current means more charge to pull out of the photo transistor base. These kind of inductors have datasheeet magnetic field spilling out the ends of the drum, which not only caused EMI, but also caused flux to couple into the ground plane, essentially creating an extra parasitic winding that was shorted.

Or is it fifth?

When the transistor collector-to-emitter voltage drops to the point where the base-collector junction becomes forward-biased, this stores additional charge. We called him up and asked about these.


Did you consider using datasgeet base-emitter junction as a photodiode, with one or two bipolars for amplification? Some boards use thicker copper plating to handle high currents.

The voltage gain between base and collector causes an effective multiplication of capacitance seen at the base. 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. Have a very happy holiday season! Keep the base-collector junction from saturating. The first technique listed above, pushing charge in or pulling charge out, is possible to use as well.

And good designers knew how to make use of them. In a plain transistor circuit as opposed to a phototransistorthe 4j35 current would come from a voltage through a resistor, and we could add parallel capacitance to this resistor.

Response times are much faster with a lower output impedance. I did some experiments many years ago, and I recall a bandwidth improvement of about a factor of compared to the vanilla circuit pull-up resistor, nothing else.

Op-amps are optimized to be nice and linear. But we can help it turn off faster, by connecting a resistor between base and emitter. This should allow the phototransistor to be turned on faster. Previous post by Jason Sachs: Foxtrot used datssheet PIC16C72 microcontroller datashest handle the communications. All these things mean that you need to have lots of CTR margin: The second lesson is to make use of pre-existing economies of scale.

Most optoisolators have an input-output rating anywhere between V and V. Despite this, I do strongly encourage you to explore low cost design techniques to make better use of the components you have available.


Schottky clamp D2 is a BAT54 diode, which serves to keep the phototransistor from entering saturation. Foxtrot to give us some information about how the code worked. datasgeet

Arduino Robotics Lonnie Honeycutt. Keep collector impedance low, reduce magnitude of switching.

But this charger caused enough electromagnetic interference that it disrupted datashert communications, and it stopped and displayed a fault.

One more quick comment before we do, though:.

We had kind of an odd battery pack, and the charger needed a custom design. On the firmware side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems. At this point we got Mr. A 2N equivalent is fine for Q2. Now the phototransistor will never saturate, so we can move the Schottky clamp to Q2 instead, to prevent it from saturating. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: One way is to reduce the magnitude of the voltage swing, so there is always at least a volt or two between collector and emitter, and the other is to use a Schottky clamp or Baker clamp to keep the collector in an NPN transistor just above the saturation voltage.
