  2. Maxwell Strange EDN Forget to turn off the ceiling fan in your bathroom? Install the simple timer in Figure 1. It's located out-of-sight in the fan unit, and you turn it on via the wall switch. The circuit costs virtually nothing, using junk ...

  2. Supply Light Cree C535A-WJN
    Eliot Johnston EDN Keeping low-voltage outdoor lights illuminated takes some effort. Bulbs burn out, and connections corrode. HB LEDs (high-brightness light-emitting diodes) seem like acceptable replacements, but most are available only in ...

  3. Supply Vishay SFH617A
    Marc Ysebaert EDN Although a monolithic low-dropout regulator has superior dynamic characteristics, the discrete regulator in this Design Idea is so simple that you can adapt it to many purposes. Using a common transistor, it has a dropout voltage ...

  5. Supply Analog Devices LT8650S LT8672
    Bin Wu, Analog Devices Design Note 572 Introduction The LT8672 is an active rectifier controller that (along with a MOSFET) provides reverse current protection and rectification for power supplies in automotive environments. This job is ...
