  1. Closed: Re: Frequency Generator XR-2206 PCB Design Missing Components

    One question:
    Do you have a schematic for your project?

    This is a very important question. Blindly copying a layout without the benefit of a schematic netlist, a mistake is very likely.

    Closed: Re: Easiest way to get 5v and ~1V

    +1 What Klaus just mentioned.

    Before the advent of rail to rail opamps, one had to procure a negative supply, a big hassle for battery operated products.

    Nowadays, with the proliferation of R2R...

  4. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Trouble with frying 74LS11N AND Gate

    The 74LS11 IC is a triple, 3 input AND gate.

    What are you doing with the inputs of the two other unused gates?

    Closed: Re: Need Suggestions to run DC Motor

    Agree that using an optotriac to drive a relay load is not a good idea.

    And feeding the relay coil from the variable VDC used for the motor? Another bad idea.

    Placing a 50 ohm resistor in...
  7. Closed: Re: How the washing machine Automatic Load Sense works?

    Universal motors would have at most four wires.
    Two for the armature and two for the field.

    Those are reversible. Non reversible have only two wires.
  8. Closed: Re: How the washing machine Automatic Load Sense works?

    An induction motor, specially those dreary split phase devices are used, have so many no-load losses that they will obscure any additional current draw.
    This in addition to the drum's high inertial...
  9. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Transformer saturation & ACM control

    If the LPF cutoff frequency is lower than the reciprocal of a half period, I would say that ACM would not reliably prevent assymetrical core saturation.


    Think of one situation. Let's say, as an...

    Again, I encourage you to build a discrete transistor regulator, because it is a *very valuable* learning experience.

    Start with the circuit you have. Once that it is working, poke around the...

    Additionaly.... There is no fast and direct method to measure the die’s temperature.

    Even if the series pass transistor is within its SOA boundaries, poor heatsinking, thermal interfacing or...
  13. Closed: Re: ATA6561 getting shorted frequently

    Voltage sequencing.

    Have your read the data sheet and verified the timing relationship between voltages at power up?

    It might be a non-issue, but please check it out.
  14. Closed: Re: Motor dummy load resistor calculator

    If the 24 Vac you quoted was measured line to line, the resistors should be connected in delta.

    Also, the equation for the delivered power is

    P = I x V x sqroot(3)

    Are you in the US/Canada/Mexico or other country where the nominal AC voltage is 120VAC?

    If so, a full-wave SCR controller will provide the required VDC average voltage.

  17. Closed: Re: Oscilloscope probe voltage derating vs frequency

    Makes sense now!

    I was wondering how come a 600VDC probe would only withstand about 50V @ 10 Mhz, which is not that high in frequency.

    Fortunately, logic circuits running that fast are all low...
  18. Closed: Oscilloscope probe voltage derating vs frequency

    What is the technical reason which the scope probes are derated with frequency?

    This is a generic probe from TPI, but have seen the same behavior on other brands, too

  21. Closed: Re: Offline power supply for class D bass guitar amplifier

    Really, any SMPS which has been designed for an audio amplifier should work.

    And indeed, stiffness of the supply is one requirement. But I would say it doesn't have to be lightning fast. I've seen...

    These have low leakage and low Vf.

    You need to measure real core loss, with a wattmeter that measures true power= V*I*cos(alpha).

    The core material with the lowest losses, all other things kept identical, is the best.

    Regardless of what compensation scheme you choose, hopefully you have (or can borrow) a "Bode Box" to check the phase/gain margin.
