    [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Is this a good circuit that I have designed?

    I don't see how you can achieve a stable segment current with the driver circuit. The driver ICs have relative large voltage drop, you would need a higher supply voltage, e.g. 15 V to get a certain...

    Closed: Re: Single supply low-side shunt amplifier

    A single BJT amplifier has an offset drift of 2 mV/K, so it's surely inappropriate for a 60 mV shunt.

    Before discussing reasonable amplifier option, we should know your accuracy requirements,...

    Closed: Re: Did early power MOSFETs have body diode?

    Vertical MOSFET, e.g. all power MOSFET have the substrate tied to source by design. Respectively there's always a "body diode" connected in parallel to DS.

    Small signal MOSFET have the source...

    Closed: Re: Halogen Lamp Limit Resistor?

    That's what I learnt as a student, but we see many halogen lamps with dimmer, in domestic as well as stage lighting. They seem to achieve a fair lifetime though.

    I would use a PWM dimmer with soft...

    Closed: Re: Stacking diodes for high voltage rectification

    Avalanche diodes are mostly used in HV diode stacks, e.g. the 8 kV/2.5A stack of Semikron. Avalanche capability means in this regard, that a diode can start to draw breakdown current without wear, in...

    Closed: Re: Stacking diodes for high voltage rectification

    The usual solution is to use diodes with avalanche characteristic that can be series connected without voltage sharing means.

    Closed: Re: cd4060 used in sensor circuit

    It's apparently an EC (electrical conductivity) meter. EC is sometimes used as an estimation of TDS, but only valid for ionic compounds. The timer is probably used to generate an AC carrier signal.

    What is PL and PS?

    See forum rules, you shouldn't use
  9. Closed: Re: Sine PWM calculated with pic, instead of using table

    Regarding PWM scheme in post #19, it produces intended sine waveform only for resistive and under circumstances inductive load.

    Closed: Re: Bridge Rectifier won't Rectify

    It really depends on the intended probe frequency range, which wasn't specified along this thread. The shown resistor divider primarily suffers from HV resistor parallel capacitance, which is causing...
  11. Closed: Re: Pulse transformer output measured vs. calculated?

    O.k., voltage and current are almost in phase now, apparently a DC offset of the Rokowski measurements is causing a ramp in the current display, should be zeroed out.
  12. Closed: Re: Pulse transformer output measured vs. calculated?

    With an estimated capacitance of 1 pF for the 100 Mohm resistor, you get a zero at 1600 Hz. A single 1 nF compensation capacitor can at least improve the transfer function.
  13. Closed: Re: Pulse transformer output measured vs. calculated?

    Is it a similar divider as in your other thread?

    If so, I doubt that the voltage waveform isn't reproduced correctly. Similarly, what kind of Rogowski coil and integrator circuit are you...

    Closed: Re: Bridge Rectifier won't Rectify

    Rectifier output voltage is clamped to n*diode forward voltage, e.g. a few 10 V in your design.

    Closed: Re: Bridge Rectifier won't Rectify

    It's not surprizing to see large ripple at the rectifier output. Negative voltage as shown is however not feasible. Most likely explanation is the waveform distortion by the uncompensated voltage...

    Closed: Re: STM32F3 built-in opertion amplifier

    You're simply confusing source and load impedances. Rain is the impedance of the source driving the ADC, minimal OP load impedance has nothing to do with it. Reconsider.

    As for your general...
  17. Closed: Re: Why does my homemade Yagi wifi antenna perform so poorly?

    You are right, driving element impedance depends on the reflector and director spacing. I found this table in Balanis Antenna Theory. Numbers are for regular half-wave dipole, folded dipole has 4x...
  18. Closed: Re: Why does my homemade Yagi wifi antenna perform so poorly?

    Thanks for mentioning the foam board. So it's actuality a folded dipole. Unfortunately it's seriously mismatched in this case, having typically 290 ohm impedance. In addition you have the problem of...

    Closed: Re: Center tapped transformer (forward converter)

    You can try to make the 12 V inductor large enough to provide continuous current at 2 W load.

    Coupled inductors can basically work, obviously the inductor turns must have the same ratio as the...
  20. Closed: Re: Pulse transformer output measured vs. calculated?

    How do you measure it? Sure that the probes don't affect the circuit? The question isn't clear at all.

    The post body doesn't match the title. Where's the Verilog code?
  22. Closed: Re: Why does my homemade Yagi wifi antenna perform so poorly?

    As shown in the picture, it's a straight 60 to 75 ohm half wave dipole, not a folded dipole. This makes sense because it's roughly matched to the 50 ohm cable, however it misses at least a ferrite...

    Apart from possible ringing and overshoot, a forward converter shows only tracking outputs if both inductors are in continuous conducting mode (CCM).

    To achieve tracking over a wide output load...

    If it's isolated RS-485, e.g. PROFIBUS network, it doesn't necessarily use ground connection. Star connection through "junctions box" is only applicable for lower Baud rates or short connections....
