i am simply testing an LED to see what is the maximum frequency it could work with .. at 3MHZ.... the waveform looks like noise ....or similar to triangular wave... why does it happen ?
A resistor alone cannot do this, you would need an active current source and sink circuit --> what is the...
can i get a circuit diagram where i can test an LED ? please... i need to figure out this..

i got the voltage waveform across the LED... the DC offset is 5V from the frequency generator.. is this the right way to test a single LED ?
so, i simply connected a LED (forward voltage of 3.3v) with a series resistor (85 ohm), that should give 20mA of current to the LED.
then , connected the frequency generator to the series circuit, the LED worked pretty good at about 900kHz .. but when i kept to 10Mhz or more than 3-4 Mhz...
If i sending 9600bps ..how to approximate what frequency it is ?
lets say if i am giving 10kHz square wave....--> what Bps it is ?for 10khz frequency how many bits i can send per second at max?
on the other thread i saw 1Hz is 2bits... so 10kHz is 20kbps ???
i am newbie..can you explain me what u mean by observing forward current... so,if i keep a voltage supply to an LED,i cant keep a frequency generator ?
can you provide me a proper circuit to test an LED ?@20mA current
so that i can modulate LED and can see the output from LED in a...
the waveform across the photodiode looks like a sawtooth...but how come when it is connected to op-amp the wave changes to square ?
i simply modulated an LED(connected to frequency generator 10khz)no matter what waveform i give,the shape across the photodiode is the same...
I have seen a lot of calculations where they take GAIN as 10 or 20 instead of the original value in the datasheet.For example 2n2222 transistor
VCC = 5 ,Led(Vf = 3v).
For Ic = 20mA,Rc = [VCC-VF(LED)-VCE(SAT)]/Ic = [5-3-0.25]/20mA = 87 ohms.
Ib=Ic/Gain = 20mA/110 = 0.18mA
Rb = [Vcc-Vbe]/Ib =...
why square r0ot 2 ?
information of freq generator :
frequency - 10khz
trig level - CONT
DC offset - 5V
Pulse width variable - 10ns
transit time - 7ns
output attn(db) - 0
anything i am missing ?
i checked the Vf for the white LED... it is showing 3.3v (with 100ohm resistor in...
i designed a basic circuit as in the picture.When i given the voltage from voltage regulator.The measured current through LED is same as the simulation = 12.7mA. but when i connected to the Frequency generator(10kHz with DC OFFSET of 5V),
the current through the LED is double the value ??why is...
