LED power supply - Single AA cell powers two LEDs at constant current HOME This circuit is reasonably efficient, but efficiency can be increased by using a germanium transistor at the 33 ohm current sense resistor.     HOME
LED stepdown power supply - PFM stepdown switcher powers LEDs at constant current HOME This is a proof of concept circuit which needs improvement. The part values shown will run a high efficiency red LED with a Vf of 1.9V from only 2 nicads, right ...
LED Stroboscope - Maintains constant brightness at all flash rates HOME The rotary switch is available for $5.00USD as of 2003 from DigiKey under part number EG1951-ND or EG1952-ND. It is a real pain to operate this circuit without a proper switch. ...
Stud Sensor Automatic - This is the old discrete component design, now superceded by a PIC. HOME This thing is a very neat capacitive sensor. For you europeans, this little gem is used in north america mostly for detecting wooden beams behind ...
Flashlight Timers - Children's flashlights often have timers to preserve battery life HOME A nice design which even turns off if the pushbutton is held depressed or jammed a long time. Not re-triggerable while the light is still on though(Thanks ...
