    Can a regular multimeter measure voltages in 400hz range?

    Hi, I’m building a test bench for some aircraft instruments and I was testing a Bendix 1964771-3 inverter(24 VDC) brought from eBay. The inverter should have outputs of 129VAC @ 370Hz @ 12VAC/18VAC @ 1110 Hz. The inverter was marked as untested but removed working from an aircraft I was told...

    Hardware Interlock Circuit with AND & NOT Gates

    Here is my Hardware Interlock Circuit for Gate Signals which prevents both PWM Signals to be at same state at any given time. Here I want to reduce this two AND Gate IC's into a Single AND Gate IC. Or Is there any other way to implement the Hardware Interlock for Gate Signals ? Is there any...

    Gate driver for two switch forward converter

    I'm trying to understand how to drive the MOSFET's in the two-switch forward, I designed a 200W DC-DC converter, 50V input 100V output but I was looking for using an MCU and IC in this case I have an IR2110 high side low side for the gate drive, I don't know if it is possible to use it? and if...

    20V max DC motor, how do hairdryer work on cool air without heating filament ?

    Hi readers, Hairdryers (240V AC) actually works on a design which current passes through the heating filament (Maybe consume 220V) to produce a lot of heat whereas through the DC motor (Maybe consume 20V). I have always been curious about this Question: Hair dryer has an option of choosing the...

    LM317 no reference voltage

    Hello all, This is my first post so forgive me if I break any rules, I am trying to create a variable voltage power supply using an lm317 but am running into problems. For starters, it doesn't seem that I have a vref voltage, when probed I get 0 volts across input and adjust. My second problem...

    Solar LED Troubleshooting and Learning

    Hi all, I have a Solar LED Light that is not working, and I want to use this to get back into electronics a little. I'm a Control Systems designer, but this level of electrical work still creates a lot of confusion for me. So I am hoping to use this as a learning project. The board is a...

    How to wire up PWM control chip to DC DC boost circuit

    Hello, I need some help connecting an 8 pin current mode PWM controller to my boost converter circuit. Specifically this one. I have used controller IC's with integrated switches to make boost converters before, however, the amount of power I need to run through the circuit requires an external...

    Texas Instruments BQ24640RVAT

    Received feedback that these parts are mysteriously over-heating when sent certain commands. When switched out with comparable parts in stock> No over-heating occured . Curious if this is impacting other users of this part or not. Is it a sign that this part could be counterfeit? Is there a bad...

    Opto-isolator/ optocoupler for electric isolation in IC design.

    Hello everyone. I came across while reading the opto-isolator technique used for electric isolation in embedded systems/ Integrated Circuits design that " Opto-isolator is not recommended for electric isolation in power applications IC's mainly due to its dV/dt sensitivity". So I would like to...

    Modulating frequency of Multi-vibrator circuit (CMOS technology)

    Hello, I am modulating control signal with Multivibrator circuit in CMOS technology. I use this formula (1/2.2RC) to find the frequency of modulated signal with multivibrator. But my simulation (result) and theoritical (calculation) of frequency is not matching. I am using CADENCE software tool...
