In fact, if I want to send a high-speed digital signal across a voltage isolation barrier, I would probably not use optoisolators, but instead something like the Si or SiBB or ISOCwhich are actually based on capacitive coupling, rather than optoelectronics.

The large manufacturers like Apple and Samsung and Dell are able to get cycle times down to the point where they can churn out a new product quickly and have it cheap datasgeet to make a profit at high volumes.

Previous post by Jason Sachs: In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph:.

Optoisolators are one major exception: Save your cost-down energy to be ready in time for the volumes in which it will pay off. At the time, I posted this thread about it to the eevblog forums and someone from Datasbeet read it and corrected the site. And everyone in the chain gets a share of the profits.

I worked on one project where we used 6 oz. One more quick comment before we do, though: And the deadline dattasheet getting closer… so we asked to look at the code itself. Have a very happy holiday season! As a result, excess current flowed in the inductor, and it went into saturation and overheated. 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 in my design as an insurance policy, but I would probably leave them unpopulated.


Another technician and I looked closer, and we found 4m35 the thermal reliefs datadheet some of the vias were the culprit. But first I need to go on a short tangent and vent.

Optimizing Optoisolators, and Other Stories of Making Do With Less

Whereas the cheapest optoisolators are the LTV and EL at just under 10 cents each in piece quantity. These prototypes had issues. Eventually we got an updated prototype.

R1 and R4 are the basic resistors setting input current and output load. A 2N equivalent is fine for Q2. And lucky me, all of us were in different states.

Now the phototransistor will never saturate, so we can move the Dayasheet clamp to Q2 instead, to prevent it from saturating. Registering will allow you to participate to the forums on ALL the related sites and give you access to all pdf downloads.

He said some of the connections on the circuit board had been open-circuited. 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 resistance by something in the range so you have plenty of margin.

Circuit Design Analog Circuits Optimization. The second lesson is to make use of pre-existing economies of scale. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: Receive a notification when Jason Sachs publishes a new article: This should allow the phototransistor to be turned on faster. The exposure of light onto the phototransistor essentially acts in place of the normal base current.

The website they put up was very nice but referenced Pease’s “33 year career at TI We had kind of an odd battery pack, and the charger needed a custom design. Foxtrot out of the picture, and I took over the software design as well, learning SPASM because it was too difficult to convert the code to the native Microchip assembly instructions without the risk of introducing new errors.


At this point we got Mr. The year before, I was assigned responsibility for a battery charger in a medical device, and I designed and built some prototype chargers around some power supply modules from Vicor.

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

Hi Jason, thanks for another great article – I’ve enjoyed all your embedded related articles so far! One more quick comment before we do, though:.

We could put a capacitor in parallel with whatever resistance we use to drive the LED, and it will add a short high-current pulse when the LED is first turned on. So he changed it to one ounce copper. Current goes in on one side, this causes current to flow on the other side, and there is no galvanic connection between input and output, so you can send a signal across a high-voltage differential. Turning off a transistor in the saturation region requires extra charge to be removed.

Digi-Key carries one from Lite-On for One trick to reduce this impact on critical circuit nodes used in solderless breadboards, is to leave an empty row between each circuit node.

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