You may already have on hand a 12V AC/DC adaptor or 12V from your PC or 12V battery, but you need a 9V, 2.5A DC power supply for your embedded system. Certainly, you will need a DC-to-DC converter for...
Sometimes a simple analogue power supply with adjustable output voltage and adjustable current-limiting function is needed. This article presents a simple power supply using an adjustable regulator LM350 that provides variable output up to 17V and maximum output current...
This project is based on Arduino Uno and Processing software for monitoring temperature and sending voice alerts. Processing is an open source IDE that can be used to visualise data and implement other functionalities. Circuit and working The circuit is built...
Presented here is an electronic toy circuit for your child’s entertainment. The concept of a joint family is disappearing, and childcare is also becoming difficult. It is best to spend some quality time with your child by doing things...
Here is a simple audio amplifier circuit based on TDA2050 IC. This amplifier can deliver an output power of around 15W for an 8-ohm load, 18W speaker with 18V DC power supply. Circuit and working The circuit diagram of the TDA2050-based...
Smart presentation pointers are readily available in the market but are expensive. Here is a simple, easy-to-build, inexpensive and infrared (IR)-based smart slide pointer using Arduino Leonardo. Slide presentations using PowerPoint can be frustrating because you may need to click...
The circuit presented here can measure voltage (V), current (A) and wattage (W) on an OLED. It is actually voltmeter, ammeter and wattmeter circuits combined in one unit. It is a useful tool for testing circuits, desktop power supplies,...
Most power-resumption alarm devices produce non-stop alarm when power resumes. To overcome this problem, here is an automatic Power-Resumption alarm circuit that sounds an alarm for a few seconds only after power resumes. Author’s prototype is shown in Fig. 1. Circuit...
Here is a simple solid-state relay (SSR) driver circuit using a transistor. An SSR is similar in operation to a traditional electromagnetic relay with movable/physical contacts. It employs an optical semiconductor, called photocoupler, to isolate input and output signals;...
This project presents an Android app to generate an alert (alarm) on a smartphone when temperature of the process under consideration exceeds user-defined maximum temperature. Alarm and annunciator instrumentation systems are widely used in the control room of process plants....
