Hello, Im looking for help to the following problem:
Im sending timing signals with directed narrow angle IR leds. When IR LED switches on I should detect signal with +5V or +3.3V GPIO pin. Most important is to get constant time, lets say?10ns, between IR present and detection. It wouldnt hurt to get long range (3-4m) too.

I have not being a member of edaboard for a long time so please inform me if I can place this post in a better place. I thought that this would be a good place since PIN diode are used a lot in RF applications, although this is not an RF application.
I need a good source of information (Technical or Application notes) on

im using the optocoupler to drive the switches in 2 switches foward converter. for the cathode and anode , pin 2 and pin 3 in hpcl 3120 , is it we just connect to the function generator to supply the PWM into the hpcl 3120?

If the Tesla coil should spark by audio signal, why not use a simple VOX? This is a Voice-Operated switch, operates wirelessly, and in the audio amplifier after the microphone you can add a filter for a selected tone, so the Tesla coil will not spark at ANY sound but only one you send from your speaker.
You can also use a laser pointer as trans

Can you suggest me proper value of the RC filter given in the circuit attached with the mail. I tried with R7 = 220K and C55 = 100nF but none of the lights are detected and if I neglect the f

I want to use optical fiber and LeaserDiode as detector .
A laser diode isn't a detector. I would suggest you look at a fast PIN photodiode for the detector. Assuming you have lots of signal you should be able to use a simple resistive load (50 ohms or less) for the photodiode. However, you will not find i

I've taken on a project that is a tad out of my league in terms of circuits... Basically its an aluminium block being heated to 63°C for 20 - 60 minutes. This block has sample tubes in them in which a reaction (LAMP - type of Isothermic PCR) takes place producing flurecence if a gene is present, and I hope to measure this using an amp'd ph

Use a commercial passive IR detector (as used in burglar alrm systems)
Use an IR photodiode as a detector(plus the necessary amplifier). Place a Fresnell lens in front of the photo diode. The humabn body will be a source of IR signal. Use a high pass filter to detect the target movement (The Fresnell lens will "amplify"target movement.

Your photodiode is in wronge direction, you must reverse the diode direction.

Thank you for your help.
"current mode" means the input for my optical receiver is in current format, for example 10uA as the output nature of the photodiode.
i just learned that PRBS can be generated from a matlab using some scripts, or digital circuits as described above.
I will try to import the PRBS to Cadence, hopefully I can find a

The transmitter flashes the LED very rapidly. This is to increase it's brightness by driving it at high(ish) current but for short periods so it doesn't overheat.
The receiver picks up the flashes in the photodiode as a tiny voltage change and amplifies it so the signal is bigger in the 741 op-amp. The amplified signal is then converted to DC in

its just a very simple motion detector.. using photodiodes
The said kit uses a pyrolectric infrared sensor (wavelength range e.g. 7 to 14 um) that senses variations in the thermal radition of objects. The term motion detector usually refers to this kind of thermal infared detectors, that's why I asked about the form of motion

I am quantifying the characteristics and performance of a device that includes a photodiode.
Currently my set up involves the photocurrent generated by a photodiode going into a pre-amplifier and then additional signal processing elements.
My new experiment involves the use of low current ammeter. The meter is different from a normal ammeter

Hi I like to design a laser driver that can regulate the current based on the photodiode inside its package. Basically a constant output laser diode. I also need to modulate the output of the laser at 1MHz using pulses. Any pointers or reference schematics I can use?

To check for correct operation of your driver circuit, you would preferably measure signals from the driver itself as a fisrt step, e.g. voltage across R7.
A weakness of your darlington driver is the lack of a base-emitter resistor for Q2. A sufficient low ohmic resistor (e.g. 100 ohm) helps to switch of Q2 fast. The square wave frequency can't

The circuit is designed as a colour sensor, using a 3-channel output photodiode to detect the RGB light intensity.
In order to save component costs and in an attempt to produce a more compact solution, I included a 4-1 multiplexer to switch between the 3-channels of the photodiode sensor

Barry is right. Any sort of schematic, even hand drawn and scanned to make .png or jpg would help lots.
The logic part, which pair signals first, counted while both are signalled together, is easy enough.
Your difficulty is getting reliable signal conditioning from the LED/photodiode pairs to deliver the change as a logic signal.
