We had started working with a contract manufacturer to help us redesign parts of our system, and reduce cost and increase manufacturability. But we can help it turn off faster, by connecting a resistor between base and emitter.

It turns out that there actually are optoisolators which give dataheet access to the base terminal. The second round of prototypes were better, and he sent a few of them to us. The website they put up was very nice but referenced Pease’s “33 year career at TI And every so often, they find a niche usage in your circuits.

The second lesson is to make use of pre-existing economies of scale. The thickness of the copper plating in a printed circuit board is conventionally measured in ounces of copper used per square foot of board area: Keep base-collector junction from saturating. Circuit designers typically use a Schottky diode clamp or a technique called the Baker clamp to keep the collector in an NPN transistor just above the saturation voltage.

The idea is that you figure out the minimum amount of equivalent base current caused by light falling onto the phototransistor, and budget some of it towards flowing through the base-emitter resistor. Comments Write a Comment Select to add a comment [ – ].

And the deadline was getting closer… so we asked to look at the code itself. He said some of the connections on the circuit board had been open-circuited. On the firmware side, we were getting concerned, as a deadline was approaching and we still had problems. On the bottom of the circuit board, there were some 18 AWG jumper wires.

Comparators are optimized to be fast. In retrospect, I should have run away when I realized Mr. We got him to fix the vias and size the thermals properly. Response times are much faster with a lower output impedance. Designs have to work first, and be inexpensive second.

We called him up and asked about these. Or is it fifth? Foxtrot used a PIC16C72 microcontroller to handle the communications.

Three or four decades ago, if you mentioned transistors, the implication was that you were probably talking about bipolar transistors rather than MOSFETs. Whereas the cheapest optoisolators are the LTV and EL at just under 10 cents each in piece quantity.

Optimizing Optoisolators, and Other Stories of Making Do With Less

Foxtrot sent us the first few prototypes. We could put a capacitor in parallel with whatever resistance we use to drive the LED, and it will add a short high-current pulse when the LED is first turned on. These prototypes had issues. The fastest computers used bipolar transistors in emitter-coupled logic ECLand even the more garden-variety logic chips that had decent performance were S or AS with Schottky-clamped diodes. Eventually we got datasheer updated prototype. Despite this, I do strongly encourage you to explore low cost design techniques to make better use of the components you have available.


On the outside it looked kind of okay, but maybe smelled a little odd, and when we pulled off one layer of the onion, we could see the rot, but then when we pulled off a few more layers it was okay. It was a cost-cutting measure on a circuit board that needed to handle the current. And good designers knew how to make use of them.

Speedup capacitor and resistor C1 and R2 may be difficult to use without drawing too much current, so if I were creating a circuit board, I would keep them in my design as an insurance policy, but I would probably leave them unpopulated.

On one side of the package, you put in current through the LED. I worked on one project where we used 6 oz.
