## 120v zero cross detector

i need some way to let my microcontroller know when a zero cross occurs, otherwise i cant keep phase with my little light dimming project. i saw plans for using a 4n25 (the most primitive of optocouplers: merely a transistor pretty much), but i havent had much luck actually making it go. it pretty much just hooks the LED input up to the AC

## Zero of a common source amplifier

The descprepancy might originate from your hand calculation is not accurate enough: the Cgd of the input transistor is not easily calculated by hand. You should rely on the simulator to give you more precise number. A sanity check also reveals that the zero can not be at over 100GHz frequency. 40~50 GHz is a more reasonable number. Willy

## Why magnetic field outside the long solenoid is zero?

Magnetic field outside a long solenoid can never be zero. Because a solenoid of finite length will have edges and field will come out. However, if we imagine a straigth solenoid of infonite length or a toroid, it will not have edges from where lines of force can come out. therefore field would be zero outside a toroid or a strigth solenoid of infil

Hi, all I want design a Return to zero optical link with variable duty cycle. I started it from 50% duty cycle. Following is my block diagram. Basically, I use a and gate to generate 50% duty cycle Return to zero(RZ) signal and use D flip flop to recover the signal to Non-Return-zero.

## pole-zero doublet - poor settling time- MATLAB

I just un-installed my MatLAB otherwise i would have checked it properly. Adding a zero z will change the root locus plot of the system. Its may be the reason that when we convert open-loop system to close loop. z will be introduced in denominator. Which will change the response of the system. Plot your system here users.ece.gatech.ed

## About the transient simulation

Definately, you can set up the initial condition. Usually the circuit which needs a start up has two stable operating conditions, one at zero volts and the other at the normal voltage at which the circuit operates. Hence, the start up is used to push the circuit to the second stable operating condition by pumping the required current. So, you can

## phase aligning in PLL

There is an easy way to achieve zero phase error that is to use "zero dely buffer" ic. It's a common device available from some manufacter such as ICS, Cypress. If you wanna design one by your self, then you have to considering the addtional phase error between the reference divider and output divider. An useful way to solve this problem i

## anybody give me a power-on-reset circuit?

thanks it should have the power-on-reset,and powe-down-reset function, and when reset is down it should consume zero-power!! thank you very much

## help: What should I do before block test in analog tape out?

When you connect the chip, make sure that the power supply is giving you 'zero' current. Increase this slowly. don't start off with vdd set to give you unlimited current. Run a DC open/short on the chip itself when it is not mounted. Run a DC open short test on your PCB FIRST!!! Use an antistatic wrist-band OR touch the properly grounded i

## BER of OFDM,QAM,BPSK in matlab

Hi bleach: at first and for simplicity you suppose that you are simulating a BPSK transmitter and reciever and you are going to plot the BER versus SNR. so you should do these three stages : 1. you should generate a sequence of binary data which are in form of BPSK , such as this sequence {1 -1 -1 1 1 1 -1 . . .}. 2. you should combine the

## measuring settling time of a frequency synthesizer [hlp]

The simplest way to set the span to zero of spectrum analyzer and sweep time should be very slow regarding to normal sweep time. If you know exactly the frequency of synthesized, you set the center of spectrum analyzer, set the span to zero and slow down the sweep. if you can, you may apply a trigger signal to start-up the sweep. Or, simlpy conn

## How to switch to ASIC design from being a SF QA engineer?

First of all , what i suggest is to make sure you want to get into ASIC job, coz you joined SF QA and now you are realising that you wana change. That might repeat with ASIC. But if you are really interested in working in ASIC, remember you got to start from zero. As your QA experience won't count. Go for some placement and job oriented courses.

## My circuit is unable to control dc motor

The gate drive of SCR will have a low impeadance. The work off of current to drive them not voltage like a FET. You should probably be hitting about 1-1.5 V peak on the gate drive of with the SCR connected. The attached drawing is one that I have done myself. I did neglect to put in all the gate pulses you would get from the zero cross ( just r

## Is it possible to convert a pc serial port(rs232)to a 0-10v

## How to use the Matlab command FFT to convert voice time domian to frequency domain?

If I did really understand what you're talking about is why do you have a symetrical spectral pattern. That's because the Fourier transform give a symetrical spectral pattern but at zero it means that you should have some negative frequencis. Matlab shift all frequencies untill you have just positive ones. So if you don't like this you just need t

## problem on using triac

Hi, For low power dc control of power triacs you should use an optocoupler such as for example MOC3041 (or similar). This device incorporates a zero-crosing bilateral triac driver. You can refer: Hope it's usefull for you. Good luck.

## Convert Variable to Array in C

The easy solution is to use sprintf. It will do the conversion and tell you how many characters it wrote. However, sprintf is big. If you need a small function, check your compiler's library to see if it provides an int-to-string function. If still no luck, someone can probably help you write one. I can think of a couple of ways to compute the n

## Xilinx Sysgen Basics Help

Hello Everyone, I've started in the VHDL world, mainly because my University is focused on DSPs and microcontrollers. So I've decided to do research in VHDL and FPGAs to encourage research and development in this interesting area. Well, I'm doing digital audio processing in the FGPA (XUP Virtex II-PRO). I found out that using the AC97 codec w

## low voltage signal preamplifier

js, Download the Analog Devices AD624 Instrumentation Amplifier (IA) datasheet. It has provisions for trimming both the input and output offset voltages. In your application, the input offset voltage must be much less than the minimum voltage that you want to amplify (10uV). Theoretically, you could trim out the input offset voltage of the AD62

## Why output voltage stops changing at a low value in op-amp output stage?

your output load is very small. Assume R1 is close to zero, then the output voltage will hold close to zero too.

## Assembly layer in P-CAD 2004

Hi everyone, I am having trouble in creating an assembly drawing in P-CAD for my boards. I use my own created library, but when I try to define the assembly layer I cannot use the RefDes attribute (I already used it for the silk and P-CAD will only let me use it once). As I import the netlist for the board in Tango format, the only info I have

## basic question..pls clarify

Hello If you meant switching loss of pnp transistor, it is the loss during the transition of the state of transistor. Think your open collector output is high. That means transistor is off (eg collector=5V) and there is no current flow (except small leakage current). So V*I is nearly zeor. Similarly when transistor is activated, there is a curr

## What are the types of ADCs and DACs?

ADC's are piplined, flash, delta sigma to name a few. DACs can be r-2r ladder, using auto zero technique, switched cap dacs, capacitive dacs, resistive dacs to name a few. or else could you be more specific on what you want exactly.

## problem on compensation of a LDO?

yes, dc gain, unity gain frequency and phase margin are different in different loading condition. because the load res will changed the output pole,and the ESR will add a zero,if your regulator have a large output cap,you must simulation the condition of max output current

## how to pause a hspice simulation?

Dear All, I browsed Hspice manual for .save and .load commands, and tried them. But the commands can only let the simulation skip OP calculation step. Simulation starts from the zero time point again. But I expect it start from the break point. Anyone can tell the details? Thanks Robert

## What is the purpose of pull-up resistor?

If the current in the resistor is zero, the voltage drop is zero too, so the output goes to +Vcc (In most of the cases 5V). I hope this will help you. I will in the same problem a lot of time ago. (Remember that the oputput is floating, so it takes the voltage you put externally). I hope this will help. Bye and good luck.
