Solid-State (555 IC) Stroboscope

Stroboscope is used to measure the speed of rotation, using the effect of strobed light, where a moving object will be perceived as stationary object if the light is strobed fast enough relative to the movement speed. When applied to a rotating object, a mark on the object will be perceived as not rotating if the frequency of the strobed […]

Voltage to Frequency Converter Using UJT

The following voltage to frequency converter (V/FC – VCO) circuit consist of a UJT (uni-junction transistor) oscillator in which the timing charge capacitor C2 is linearly depends on the input signal voltage. The voltage across resistor R5 set the charging current, which is accurately controlled by the amplifier. Here is the schematic diagram of the circuit:

LM139 One Shot Multivibrator/Timer

One shot multivibrator circuit is also known as monostable multivibrator or timer. The function of such circuit is simply produce a pulse strobe with a fixed width, regardless of the pulse width of the triggering input.  Below is the circuit’s schematic diagram of simple one shot multivibrator uses one section of an LM139 comparator. The width of the output pulse […]
