Hello Please specify that where can I find serial uln2803 type ICs?(with short circuit protected output power transistors,if possible) Bye
I've been used it very times. And I want find a inverting of uln2803 Explain: - uln2803 is NPN darlington. - I find PNP darlington Seem I post wrong topic. Sorry
i have 2 boards 1.AT89s52 controller 2.74HC595 -> uln2803 the connection is 2-3m /~5ft/ the system is work good but in one moment stop, i put a control LED on one of the ports to seen is the controller work . the controller work but no reaction on other board may be the problem is in cable or signal level :((( can some help me
i would suggest uln2803, coz it contains 8 current drivers so overall u'll need 2 uln to for this. Most of the 8x8 LED arrays will have 16 pins( 8 anode connection and 8 cathode connection) by giving proper signal u can glow a particular LED. Buffer must be placed between ULN and controller in order to protect the controller. By giving correspondi
I'm making a stepper driver with uln2803. It's working, but the IC heats up very quickly. I'm not using microstepping. I'm using two outputs paralleld together, totaling one ULN IC per driver (8 outputs / 2 = 4 outputs, as needed for uniploar driving). Is it safe to operate the ULN in high temps?Or should I get some cooling? Is there cooling for
I think I must connect Vcc=5 Volt on the Common pin, that is Pin number 10.I don't understand the concept of diode as shown in the diagram. It seems like as if it's working like a pull up resistor. I also don't understand the other two diodes drawn in a dashed lines (- - - - -). By studying various other examples on uln2803, I hope to learn how thi
In my design,I try to use AT89S52+uln2803 for Led driver.Could I connect port 1(or 2,3) to 2803 without any pull-up resistors? Someone said port1(or 2,3) can not output 1mA current.But I can not find the parameters on the datasheet.
hello, i am working on uln2803 to drive my DC is supposed to get an inverted o/p at its o/p pin i.e When I am giving an logic low input i must get an logic high output...but my outpin pin is always giving an low signal irrespective of my i/p signal.I have pulled up all my inputs.Please help me to find a soln 2 this probl

Hi all, I have a pcb which is using pic16f72 and uln2803 for stepper motor control. I need a program for this circuit and schematic. Can anyone help me please. I searched over net but i could not able to find Actually i have bunch of (10 to 15) steppers from old printers, i want to test them and use it for robotics. So i can use this circuit
hi the gnd pin of this chip uln2803 can i ignore it or hook it to the gnd? in proteus, this chip has no such pin i wonder in real circuit if i should connect it to the ground. Thanks
Some suggestions about your schematic design : Use uln2803 output in open colector the LED with your relay.
uln2803 has open collector outputs, you can only use them as low side switch to sink current (provide ground) 56154 the ULN should be connected like this 56153 Alex
uln2803 is an octal current sink. You can use it to interface to 12V but it will invert the signal and need it's outputs pulling up. Unless your PLC needs high currents at it's input you would find it better to use an open collector logic buffer such as the 74LS07. Unfortunately that device only has six buffers but you could use more than one or bu
hi all, how can i connect the output of IR Receiver to input of p89v51rd2 microcontroller and output of microcontroller to drive a uln2803.if i connect output of ir receiver(4.94v)directly to my microcontroller pin,will my microcontroller work? and one more thing,can i connect microcontroller output directly to uln2803

Hi all... My question is can we stack two or more uln2803 ICs on top of each other(i.e. in parallel) to increase the max current capability? I want around 600mA in each of the 8 channels at 50% duty cycle (to drive two steppers in full step mode). Thanks in advance!
Hi i want to use a pic microcontroller to control an array of 50 leds. I'm using two uln2803 ICs to control the anode and cathode of the leds but i'm having problems with my schematic because uln2803 is a NPN transistor array and i can only sink the voltage and not supply it. Is there any PNP array IC? 66524 This i

can i use a uln2803 (50V, 500mA per channel) to drive a 1.5A per phase stepper motor without load ?
I have used UDN2981 in my project to drive 4 seven segment displays, 2 big LED's & 1 buzzer. The Vs pin(9) is connected to 5V supply of micro-controller. Resistors for displays & LED's are chosen accordingly. Now my problem is that the sound from buzzer is not enough on field. I will have to increase the supply of the buzzer (it can work from 3V
Can i give the output of AT89C2051 thru uln2803 to drive Traic BT136 , which will be connected to a 230v bulb. Or Optoisolator can be activated directly but MC port output?
hi all, i want "a relay driver circuit using uln2803 to switch on the lamp" in proteus
In simple words, uln2803 is an inverting open collector driver. You can connect an external inverter to make it non-inverting, but you can't make it drive active high. Depending on your application, a pull-up resistor might be sufficient to achieve push-pull operation. Otherwise I suggest to design a suitable driver circuit on the transistor lev
Hi everybody can u help me to choose my driver to control a unipolar stepper motor. wath is the best choice, uln2003A or uln2803 ??? thank you
uln2803 is a darlington driver. It can't achieve 0.1 to 0.2 V saturation voltage.
Hello there ,can you please help me to drive those dot matrix by proving a drive uln2803 bebween the 74LS138 and DOT MATRIX. I tried to do that but I failed.Please help. without the drive the circuit operates very well in simulation but on the board with physical implementation;it doesn't work,I just see some column shifting. See my project
Hi jean12; As I promised I made and uploaded a project, just as you wished: it uses a PIC16F876A, three 8x8 LED matrices, a 4017 (instead of LS138) with uln2803, and three HC164 (instead of HC595). There are also a Start-Stop switch (see the DSN). Note this is a Proteus-only project, I hope it works also in the reality, try it. But do
Heyy i am driving 4inch 7 segment common anode display using 89S52 & uln2803 !! normally my circuit works perfectly ,,but whenever i touch any pin of uln2803(which is used for driving 7 segment display) with my multimeter's probe, the respective segment switches off !! ??? & this happen with every other segment when i touch respective pin of
i tried and get something wrong with uln2803 i test all the way but i am failed . and last i remove one by one part and replacing uln2803 with hcf40106 result got fine . so i tried again and inform u.
I am busy building the following: . I appear to have a problem driving the uln2803A with the PWM controlled FET (IRF520)... or with the uln2803A being driven by a PWM controlled FET... I currently have 7 LEDs wired to the uln2803 outputs, resistors wired to ULN out
You can use ULN2003 or uln2803 :wink:
Hi use the old tl084 it has 4 op amps and works rail to rail on 5 volts just divide your input voltage. you may add filtering also. For signaling i normaly use a uln2803 with a diode to sense on/off inputs Best
I have used 89c2O51 for this purpose. The port 1 drives the segments through a uln2803 (or ULN2003 if no decmal point is needed). For driving teh digits, I use 3x74LS138 and BC557 transistors. I think this is the cheapest solution that can be made for this purpose.
I want to replace a Siemens PLC by a microcontroler. For the 24V output I'll use some classic drivers like uln2803. Can somebody give me some tips and/or diagram to obtain the same reliability as professional PLC. What kind of components I have to use to proctect for example from HVoltage spikes, short circuit, reverse current.... Thanks D
Hi My avr micro 8515 on/off a relay by a uln2803 driver,when relay have no load everything goed well,but when I attached a 100w lamp as load to relay contacts the avr resets when turns the lamp OFF. I used the snubber circuit across contacts but problem remains. Please guide me. Regards
Hi, Thanx. I found also a chip to do that uln2803 SphinX
Hi all What is the best way to interface a 3V microcontroller to 15V CMOS ? is it possible to use uln2803? thanks
Hi, You can also use such darlington array : = t
Great. Why dont use the power supply from the printer itself? Also, u can try uln2803 type of things instead of transitors.
Hi I am a total newbie in HDL :oops: But now i might have a thing where a CPLD could come in handy I have gotten some 8x8 LED blocks Red/Green (See attached DS) And i would like to build a display with 8 of those blocks , and control them with an Atmel Mega16 or Mega32. Each 8x8 block have 24 pins so its 8 x 24 pins in all. I wa
as far as I remember the 8051 has a weak pull-up current source of about 100uA at his ports. It is not able to drive a uln2803! You will need an external pull-up resistor. The current consumption is to high for more channels. An external FET is only a solution if it is a logic-level FET ! You need a flyback diode. The best way is to use a intell
What is your load ? Why not use BC337, 2n2222, uln2803, or L293... ?
How big is maximum current per pin? In LVTTL it is said +/-24mA minimal. For testing purpose I want to connect LED diodes to FPGA structure, but there is no documented limitation of safe maximal current per pin (it is no so important) and per port (it may be important, because whole current goes thru Vcco pins and ground pins). So is there any limi
try using uln2803 driver IC , u could use two or after the 2803 u could connect a D313 transistor, capable of driving upto 2Amps.
CD4050B it's not able to provide the requested source current for multiplexed LED display, even if the gates are parallel connected. You must use either 16 NPN transistors or one uln2803 (as suggested by HUGo, driven by port P1 outputs) and 8 NPN transistors for rows. and obvious 8 resistors for current limiting (a value of 220R would be fine).
I use proteus 6.2 sp5 to make my schematic diagrams.I am new to the program. I wanted to ask what should I do about devices which are not available in the library. For example uln2803 is not in my library but ULN2003 is. How can I add uln2803?
I agree that 2N7000 or BS170 (TO-92) or 2N7002 (SOT-23) make good low current low side switches. Also consider uln2803 8-bit parallel sinking driver or MIC5841A serial-to-parallel 8-bit sinking drivers. Good luck. Regards, Mike
