Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :

1 Second One Shot Circuit - This timer circuit draws only 3ua of current, and can be powered by DC supplies ranging from 3v to 15v.  The circuit produces accurate pulses whose time can easily be adjusted, based on the R1 x C1 time constant.  The time should not change, . . . Hobby Circuit designed by David A. Johnson P.E.-September, 2010

12v Touch Switch Exciter Circuit - This circuit is designed to generate a 20KHz pseudo sine wave signal that can power about 50 remote touch activated switch circuits.    It can support a cable length of about 2500 feet.    A typical remote switch circuit is also shown as well as a receiver circuit for those switches.. . .

Circuit by David A. Johnson P.E.-September, 2010

Advertising Badge #1 with Flashing LED - I have seen numerous flashing light badges at trade shows and conventions.  They are often handed out as gifts to promote some business.  The devices often use inefficient circuits, which cause the battery power source to be quickly depleted. . . Circuit by Dave Johnson P.E.-March, 2002

Advertising Badge #2 with Flashing LED - This circuit uses a CD4013 dual D Flip/Flop IC.  A single lithium battery will provide months of continuous LED flashing.  It also has a tiny push-button switch to turn on and off the light flashing. . . Circuit by David Johnson P.E.-March, 2002

Automatic Timeout included with this On/Off Flip/flop Circuit - This circuit is ideal when a device needs to be turned on and off with a single pushbutton switch, but also needs to turn itself off after some period of time.  With the components shown, the output will stay on for only about 20 seconds . . . Hobby Circuit designed by David A. Johnson P.E.-May, 2012

Battery-Powered LED Flashing Advertising #2 - This circuit is similar to flashing LED advertising badge #1.    It uses a CD4013 dual D Flip/Flop IC.    The 74HCT74 IC in #81 does not always work.    As in #81, a single lithium battery will provide months of continuous LED flashing. . . . Hobby Circuit designed by David Johnson P.E.-March, 2002

Delayed Pulse Generator - This circuit generates a short 10ms pulse 15 minutes after a “start” pushbutton switch is activated. . . Circuit by David A. Johnson P.E.-October, 2005

Fake TV Camera Flasher -  After having my doorbell rung several times in the middle of the night by some kids, I decided to install some fake TV cameras around the outside of my house.  I was not satisfied with the LED lights on the cameras.  The heavy current drain of the original circuit meant I would have to replace the battery every few months.  So, I removed the original LED driver and added my own simple flashing circuit.   . . .

1 Hz Pulse Frequency Generator -  Here is a 1Hz pulse/frequency generator using the popular timer iC 555 which is wired as an Astable Multivibrator.  The output pulses can be indicated visually by the LED.  An Astable Multivibrator, often called a free-running Multivibrator, is a rectangular-wave generating circuit.  Unlike the Monostable Multivibrator, this __ Designed by D Mohankumar

Auto pulse generator senses & responds to a probed load -  02/25/13  EDN Design Ideas:  Use this handy pulse generator to inject momentary power pulses into a circuit under test.   __ Circuit Design by Raju Baddi

Bistable Flip flop -  Here are two examples of bistable flip flops which can be toggled between states with a single push button.  When the button is pressed, the capacitor connected to the base of the conducting transistor will charge to a slightly higher voltage.  When the button is released, the same capacitor will discharge back to the previous voltage causing the transistor to turn off.  The rising voltage at the collector of the transistor that is turning off causes the opposite transistor to turn on and the circuit remains in a stable state until the next time the button is pressed and released.   __ Designed by Ashish Parab

Build a Simple Circuit Complementary-Bracket-Pulse Generator -  20-Aug-09 EDN Design Ideas:  When building push-pull switching power converters or motor controllers, you often need alternating pulses with a small amount of dead time between them to minimize simultaneous conduction in output-switching devices.  Switching controller iCs have this feature, but they usually operate __ Circuit Design by Horst Koelzow, Global Thermoelectric, Calgary, AB, Canada

Build a UWB Pulse Generator On an FPGA -  06/23/11  EDN Design Ideas:  Make pulses that reach twice an FPGA's clock frequency.  You can implement a digital UWB (ultrawideband) pulse generator in most FPGAs.  The design lets you create a pulsed signal with a frequency that’s twice the FPGA’s clock frequency (Figure 1).  A previous design relies on asynchronous delays to make pulses of the desired frequency.  That design, however, requires an FPGA that supports tristate pullups, such as the Xilinx Virtex 2 (Reference 1).   __ Circuit Design by Punithavathi Duraiswamy, Xiao Li, Johan Bauwelinck, and Jan Vandewege, Ghent University, IMEC/Department of Information Technology, Ghent, Belgium

CD4093 Pulse Width Modulator -  The iC used is a CMOS type MC14093, a quad 2-input NAND Schmitt trigger.  if you wish, it can be directly interchanged with the CMOS MC14011 but this type is noisy.  The speed is adjustable from 0-max.  Max rpm is 2/3 the supply voltage __ Designed by Tony van Roon  VA3AVR

Circuit Detects Current Pulse -  01/06/94 EDN Design Ideas:  The pulse detector provide as a visible indication of positive and negative current pulses.  The pulses amplitudes can vary from20 to150 mA.  The pulses durations can range from10 to40 msec, and their repetition rate can span40 to180 pulses/minute __ Circuit Design by Richard McGillivray, Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada

CMOS Toggle Flip Flop using Push Button -  The circuit below uses a CMOS dual D flip flop (CD4013) to toggle a relay or other load with a momentary push button.  Several push buttons can be wired in parallel to control the relay from multiple locations.  A high level from the push button is coupled to the set line through a small (0.1uF) capacitor.  The high level from the Q output __ Designed by Bill Bowden

Flip Flop -  in this project we examine one of the most valuable circuits to be invented, the flip flop.  Originally it was designed with VALVES, along with its simpler version (without the two capacitors, called a bi-stable Multivibrator) , it was realised it  __ Designed by Collin Mitchell

Flip Flop Flashers Buzzers Etc -  Several circuits here.  The familiar astable flip-flop circuit is a handy configuration for making flashers or generating squarewaves.  Here is a typical alternating LED flasher with the LEDs in the emitters instead of collectors as is normally done.  The bias resistors are directly connected __  Contact:  Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Form Positive Pulses from Negative Pulses -  07/14/11  EDN Design Ideas:  Create positive pulses even when negative pulses vary in amplitude.  The circuit in this Design idea converts negative pulses to positive pulses.  Although that task may seem simple, the negative pulses have amplitudes of −5 to −2V.  The positive pulses also need different pulse widths, depending on the application, and the negative pulses are trapezoidal.  The pulses must travel over a long-distance transmission line to a control device.  Several circuits solve the problem, depending on the amplitude and shape of the pulses.   __ Circuit Design by Vladimir Rentyuk, Zaporozhye, Ukraine
