  1. Closed: Re: Problem with Logitech Audio PCB (No Sound Output)

    I'm looking at the 0V readings at pins 5 through 10, on IC#2. That can't be normal.

    IC#1 gives 0V only at pin 9 which is labelled ground.

    Closed: Re: Single supply low-side shunt amplifier

    Your schematic is common-base operation of a transistor. Its characteristics are:
    * low input impedance
    * high output impedance
    * high gain.

    By that reckoning it fits your purpose. A semblance...

    Although 10W is calculated dissipation, nevertheless it's wise to make your resistor rated for higher than that. Consider putting several one ohm resistors in parallel. It's easy to add or subtract,...

    As Brian says, it's more efficient to pulse the headlight.
    Nevertheless it's interesting to figure out how to achieve the resistive drop.

    To send 50W through your headlight, apply 8.5 volts...

    This can be done by putting resistors inline with the input signals. The weighting proportions are achieved by making differing ohm values. Mix them through a final resistor, to produce an output...

    It's an idea worth some experimentation.

    Sorry, I wasn't certain as to what waveform you want. This sine wave oscillator has a resonant current loop based on two capacitors and one inductor. They carry several mA as oscillations build. The...

    By installing a capacitor between the two sources, rapid zero-crossings are detectable. The capacitor produces spikes.
    However it may also produce spikes from abrupt transitions which are not...

    Install a resistor between the two sources. One source becomes ground for the other source. Measure voltage across the resistor to read differential or subtractive value.

    Closed: Re: Active HF phase shifter?

    By adding an inductor to the capacitor, attenuation is not as severe. Because you don't have a resistor involved. For 1-30 MHz range an inductor consists of a few turns around a pencil.

    A differential detector is the input stage of a comparator.

    A differentiator performs a calculus function, differentiation. Its the counterpart of integration.

    Can this be solved by impedance matching? Normally that is associated with the goal to maximize power transfer.

    Input arrives as a combination of voltage and current. The matching network raises...
