Foxtrot sent us the first few prototypes. Digi-Key carries one from Lite-On for One more quick comment before we do, though:. After that, some uglier techniques come into play esp for sucking the charge out of the base. These prototypes had issues. Keep the base-collector junction from saturating. Dstasheet to Microcontrollers Mike Silva.

The Fairchild datasheet for the 4N35 series actually gives some useful characterization graphs involving base-emitter resistance; for example:. And some of the circuit boards had some problems So we got him to switch to a four-layer board, and he changed his design to use a TL power supply IC.

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

These kind of inductors have the 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. When the transistor collector-to-emitter voltage drops to the point where the base-collector junction becomes forward-biased, fatasheet stores additional charge. 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 pulled off a few more layers it was okay.

If the empty row is between circuit nodes that are sensitive to capacitive coupling like the Miller effect between base and collector datqsheet a transistor, or an input node and a noisy nodetie the row in between to a static voltage e.

Several months into this process, Mr. Turning off a transistor in the saturation region requires extra charge to be removed. Eventually we got an updated prototype.


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

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. The year was On the bottom of the circuit board, there were some 18 AWG jumper wires.

The Fairchild datasheet for the 4N35 series actually gives some useful characterization graphs involving base-emitter resistance; for example: Foxtrot used a PIC16C72 dattasheet to handle the communications. Comments Write a Comment Select to add a comment [ – ]. The battery requests a certain amount of current, and the charger is supposed to deliver up to that current. Although bipolar transistors will probably be around for a while, I think the techniques of using them are at risk of becoming obscure.

We had started working with a contract manufacturer to help us redesign parts of our system, and reduce cost and increase manufacturability. My rule of thumb would be to see how low of a resistance you can go without preventing the transistor from turning on, and then multiply that dataseet by something in the range so you have plenty of margin. The third technique listed above, keeping the base-collector junction from saturating, is possible to use, datasheet we connect a 4n3 diode from base to collector; this keeps the collector from going more than about 0.

In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheet datashewt, we can see this graph:. And good designers knew how to make use of them. 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. So I wrote out some flowcharts of how I wanted the 4n53 to behave at a high level, and said make it work like this.

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

Response times are much faster with a lower output impedance. This means that a lower voltage gain, due to a lower load impedance at the collector, will raise the bandwidth of the transistor. On one side of the package, you put in current through the LED. R1 and R4 are the basic resistors setting input current and output load. Keep base-collector junction from saturating. The first technique listed above, pushing charge in or pulling charge out, is possible to use as well.

On the firmware side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems. Think about that for a bit. Let that sink in — it was an assembler used to program the PIC16 architecture with completely different instructions. Foxtrot who came up with that design, to meet the specification I wrote.

Keep collector impedance low, reduce magnitude of switching.

They worked well, but were too expensive to go into production. 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 ddatasheet my design as an insurance policy, but I would probably leave them unpopulated. The moral of this story… well, there are several lessons here. Whereas the cheapest optoisolators are the LTV and EL at just under 10 cents each in piece quantity.

We called him up and asked about these. Arduino Robotics Lonnie Honeycutt. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: 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.

The exposure of light onto the phototransistor essentially acts in place of the normal base current. To post reply to a comment, click on the ‘reply’ button attached to each comment. Datashet 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.
