Wireless LED Flasher -- January 9, 2011

When you would like to flash a LED through a thick plastic case without wires, use this hobby circuit. It performs this feat. It draws about 300ua of average current at 5v.   It can be powered from a supply ranging from 3v to 6v. It uses a low power op Amp as a pulse generator.  A negative going pulse from that generator gates a power oscillator on for about 20ma.  That oscillator is connected to a series resonant circuit, which drives a small coil.


Feedback from the coil insures that the oscillator runs at the LC network’s resonant frequency.  A similar coil, located some distance away, collects some of the magnetic field produced by the oscillator’s coil and uses it to drive a LED.  A separation of about 1/2 inch is about the limit for this circuit.
