Infrared Remote Tester

A very simple device allowing a quick check of common Infra-red Remote-Controls can be useful to the electronics amateur, frequently asked to repair or test these ubiquitous devices. A reliable circuit was designed with a handful of components: the LED will flash when any of the Remote-Control push buttons will be pressed. The side of the Remote-Control bearing the IR emitting diode(s) must be directed towards the Photo Transistor (Q1) of the checker circuit: maximum distance should not exceed about 20 - 25cm....

Solar Panel Based Charger And Small LED Lamp

You can save on your electricity bills by switching to alternative sources of power. The photovoltaic module or solar panel described here is capable of delivering a power of 5 watts. At full sunlight, the solar panel outputs 16.5V. It can deliver a current of 300-350 mA. Using it you can charge three types of batteries: lead acid, Ni-Cd and Li-ion. The lead-acid batteries are commonly used in emergency lamps and UPS. The working of the circuit is simple.... [read more]

Stereo Power Amplifier 4W-8W with TDA2005

This circuit [Fig.1] is a class AB stereo audio power amplifier designed by Quasar for quality hi-fi applications using a TDA2005 module. It is easy to construct and has a minimum of external components. The module has output current protection and thermal protection. This is circuit, which produces an excellent sound. The supply voltage required 9V-18V DC at 1 to 2 Amps. Maximum output power will only be obtained with a power supply of at least 2A at 15V DC, and using 2 Ohm speakers or 2 by 4 Ohm speakers in parallel. However approximately 4W/ch. can be obtained with only a 15V DC, 1A supply into 4ohm loads.... [read more]

Photo Electric Street Light

This is basically a Schmitt Trigger circuit which receives input from a cadmium sulfide photo cell and controls a relay that can be used to switch off and on a street lamp at dawn and dusk. I have built the circuit with a 120 ohm/12 volt relay and monitored performance using a lamp dimmer, but did not connect the relay to an outside light.... [read more]

Digital Voltmeter

The ICL7107 is a 3 1/2 digit LED A/D convertor. It contains an internal voltage reference, high isolation analog switches, sequential control logic, and the display drivers.... [read more]

Bicycle Back Safety Light Circuit Schematic

This circuit has been designed to provide a clearly visible light, formed by 13 high efficiency flashing LEDs arranged in a pseudo-rotating order. Due to low voltage, low drain battery operation and small size, the device is suitable for mounting on bicycles as a back light, or to put on by jogger/walkers. IC1 is a CMos version of the 555 IC wired as an astable multivibrator generating a 50% duty-cycle square wave at about 4Hz frequency.... [read more]
