Flash-Triggered Pulse Stretcher Using Classic Monostable Circuit

This is a flash triggered (photo-driven) circuit which produce a pulse with constant predetermined wide. This circuit can be used to control any device which is required to be synchronized with optical trigger/flash light.  The pulse can be used to drive relay (after proper power buffering,  to drive other circuit logic, or electronic switch.  We call it a pulse stretcher […]

General Infrared Remote Controlled Relay

This relay circuit is controlled by almost any type of infrared remote controller. This circuit works on assumption that almost all remote controller use high frequency modulated infrared light. By filtering out un-modulated or low frequency modulated signal, this circuit will be able to remove any interference from ambient infrared light coming from other sources such as sun light, soldering  […]

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 […]
