We never saw the first round of prototypes Mr. On one side of the package, you put in current through the LED. 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 datasneet saturation voltage.

In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph:.

The battery requests a 44n35 amount of current, and the charger is supposed to deliver up to that current. If you use an op-amp as a comparator, when the output goes high or low, and the 4n5 stray apart from each other, the op-amp saturates, and it may take a long time to come out of saturation. I worked on one project where we used 6 oz. The year was Although bipolar transistors will probably be around for a while, I think the techniques of using them are at risk of becoming obscure.

This should allow the phototransistor to be turned on faster.

And everyone in the chain gets a share of the profits. On the bottom of the circuit board, there were some datssheet AWG jumper wires. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: These prototypes had issues.

We called him up and asked about these. The moral of this story‚Ķ well, there are several lessons here. Response times are much faster with a lower output impedance. This all makes a datasjeet high speed opto design dayasheet ugly and complex process. Op-amps are optimized to be nice and linear.

My company did have a lot of expertise in datashheet design, but not high-volume manufacturing, so we worked with the contract manufacturer.


Keep base-collector junction from saturating. R1 and R4 are the basic resistors setting input current and output load. Despite this, I do strongly encourage you to explore low cost design techniques to make better use of the components you have available.

Push charge in, pull charge out during switching. Schottky clamp D2 is a BAT54 diode, which serves to keep the phototransistor from entering saturation.

In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph: Sign in Sign in Remember me Forgot username or password? 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.

Previous post by Jason Sachs: 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. The next best level of niceness, below the fancy black-box digital isolator, is the 6N This is done with plain transistor circuits as well: Some dattasheet use thicker copper plating to handle high currents.

But we can help it turn off faster, by connecting a resistor between base and emitter. This will speed-up turn-off times. Three or four decades ago, if you mentioned transistors, the implication was that you were probably talking about bipolar transistors rather than MOSFETs. On the firmware side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems. Logic signal in, logic signal out, galvanic isolation in between.

Another technician and I looked closer, and we found that the thermal reliefs on some of the vias were the culprit. Keep the base-collector junction from saturating. The second datashee of prototypes were better, and he sent a few of them to us.

All these things mean that you need to have lots of CTR margin: The idea is that 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.

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

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 or impossible. We could put a capacitor in parallel with whatever resistance we use to drive the LED, and it will add a short high-current pulse when the LED is first turned on. Circuit Design Analog Circuits Optimization. He likes making things spin.

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 collector from going more than about 0.

And good designers knew how to make use of them. Receive a notification when Jason Sachs publishes a new article: On the outside it looked kind of okay, but maybe smelled a little odd, and when we pulled off one layer of the onion, we could see the rot, but then when we datasheef off a few more layers it was okay. But first I need to go on a short tangent and vent. I got a passable battery charger working in time.

Collector dahasheet equals base current times beta.
