Flash Slave Trigger -  Flash slaves are used when you need to supplement1-flash unit with1-or several more.  This slave trigger simply triggers those other units.  it does this by "seeing" the first flash (using a phototransistor) and triggering the other flashes a few microseconds later.  The sensitivity of the circuit is adjustable to compensate for ambient light or dimmer than usual master flashes.   __ Designed by Aaron Cake

Flashing Beacon -  A flashing beacon has many uses.  it can be employed as a distress signal on highways or as a direction pointer for parking lots, hospitals, hotels, etc.  Here we present a...__ Electronics Projects for You

Flashing High Intensity LED 3rd Brake Light -  This circuit to make a flashing 3rd brake light assembly was designed to be easy to locate all the needed components and reasonably in expensive to build__ National Semiconductor

Flashing Indicators -  Need to flash "turn indicators" using a 555 and a single 20 amp relay.  Here is our suggestion.  The timing resistor needs to be selected for the appropriate flash-rate.  __ 555-Timer

Hacking the Kodak Max Single Use Flash Camera into a Self-Repeating Strobe -    NOTE - this approach is recommended mainly for Homebrewing a strobe that is powered by a single 1.5 volt battery.  if you can use a higher supply voltage, there are better ways to do this.   __ Designed by Don Klipstein

Kodak Max flash unit -  Schematic for the Kodak Max flash unit __ Designed by Don Klipstein

LED Strobe -  with high power LEDs available, their replacement for a xenon tube is viable!  __ Contact P. Townshend - EduTek Ltd

LED Strobe & Contactless Tachometer -  This versatile LED Strobe & Tachometer can be used to observe and measure the RPM of rotating machinery.  it offers three different measurement methods and the readout is via a 2-line LCD module.__ SiliconChip

Led Strobe & Tacho Pt.2 -  Last month, we published the circuit of our new LED Strobe & Tachometer and showed how to build the main unit and the strobe light.  This month, we describe the assembly of the optional Photo-interruptor and IR Reflector Amplifier boards.  We also describe how the unit is used.__ SiliconChip

Led Strobe 2 -  this version has been built and tested and is very simple indeed - based on alien project astable!  __ Contact P. Townshend - EduTek Ltd

Line-Powered Xenon Flash Transmitter -  This line powered xenon flash circuit drives a small camera type flash tube.  it has an optical isolator to allow the flash to be safely triggered from some remote device.  A flash rate of 2Hz is possible with the circuit. . . Circuit by Dave Johnson P.E.-June, 2000

Mad idea for a blacklight strobe -  CAUIION - May be both hard on your eyes and a bit disappointing __ Designed by Don Klipstein

Mini Pocket Strobe -  This circuit is a mini strobosocope which you can make so small that it can fit into your pocket.  The circuit is not very powerful, but is works out of two small 1.5V batteries for an hour constantly and maximum flash rate.  The flash rate is variable from zero to about 10 Hz.  Quite nice small device to have with you in parties to gain attention __ Designed by Tomi Engdahl

Mini Strobe Light using LED -  adjustable for flash rates between40 Hz and166 Hz, based on555 Timer __ Designed by Sunamura Kazuhiro

Miniature Stobe Light -  it is a circuit for a strobe light that uses a neon glow lamp with reflector to create an effect of a strobe light.  __ Electronics Projects for You

Opto-Isolated logic level trigger for general strobe applications -  Schematic only, no circuit description.  __ 

Photo Flash Charger Minimizes Parts Count -  10/22/98 EDN Design Ideas:   Photo-flash and strobe devices operate by discharging a high-voltage capacitor into a bulb.  Charging the capacitor from a battery or other low-voltage source requires a step-up DC/DC converter to boost the voltage, typically to 300V.  One way to generate the high voltage __ Circuit Design by Steven Chenetz, Micrel Semiconductor, San Jose, CA

Photoflash Capacitor Charger has Fast Efficient Charging & Low-Battery Drain -  DN303 Design Notes__ Linear Technology/Analog Devices

Pocket stroboscope -  This circuit is a mini storoscope which you can make so small that it can fit into your pocket.  The circuit is not very powerful, but is works out of two small 1.5V batteries for an hour constantly and maximum flash rate.  The flash rate is variable from zero to about 10 Hz.  Quite nice small device to have with you in parties to gain attention __ Designed by Tomi Engdahl

Repetitive trigger -  Based on the 555 timer IC , useful for strobe lights.  A bit on the 4017 counter IC for multiple flashes and sequences of flashes __ Designed by Don Klipstein
