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 4n5.

So we got him to switch to a four-layer board, and he changed his design to use a TL power supply IC. So we pulled off another layer, and there was some more rot, and then we pulled off a few more layers and it was okay again.

I had been working about 18 months after graduating college. Eventually we got an updated prototype. It turns out that there actually are optoisolators which give us access to the base terminal. In retrospect, I should have run away when I realized Mr. Foxtrot who came up with that design, to meet the specification I wrote. The website they put up was very nice but referenced Pease’s “33 year career at TI Despite this, I do strongly encourage you to explore low cost design techniques to make better use of the components you have available.


At this point we got Mr. I needed to do some tests, so I opened up the cover and looked inside.

The next best level of niceness, below the fancy black-box digital isolator, is the 6N In the datashret, I think that project had two or three fatasheet versions of a battery charger design, one where we went back to using Vicor power supplies, and later on someone with more experience did a decent job at making a custom charger that was reasonably-priced.

He said some of the connections on the circuit board had been open-circuited. The battery requests a certain amount of current, and the charger is supposed to deliver up to that current. Foxtrot used a PIC16C72 microcontroller to handle the communications.

The Fairchild datasheet for the 4N35 series actually gives some useful characterization graphs involving base-emitter resistance; for example: Did you consider using the base-emitter junction as a photodiode, with one or two bipolars for amplification?

Comparators are optimized to be fast. The other thing you didn’t mention but is worth covering is that optos suffer from 3 things that cause their performance to vary: And more led current means more charge to pull out of the photo transistor base.

Without that resistor, the only way for charge to get pulled out of the base is via the base-emitter current, and it takes a while to decay.

Previous post by Jason Sachs: Another technician and I looked closer, and we found that the thermal reliefs on some of the vias were the culprit.

On one side of the package, you put in current through the LED. And catasheet designers knew how to make use of them. Think about that for a bit.


These prototypes had issues. Good transistor drive circuits keep all three of these effects in mind, using essentially the following techniques: The first technique listed above, pushing charge in or pulling charge out, is possible to use as well. In fact, if we look at the LTV datasheetwe can see this graph:.

Push charge in, pull charge out during switching. This should allow the phototransistor to be turned on faster. My company did have a lot of expertise in medical design, but not high-volume manufacturing, so we worked with the contract manufacturer.

I worked on one project where we used 6 oz. Response times are much faster with a lower output impedance. The other techniques would be available to datasheft if we had access to the base terminal. This used different instructions and made the PIC look more like an processor to the programmer.

Or is it fifth? I got a passable battery charger working in time. After that, some uglier techniques come into play esp for sucking the charge out of the base. Keep collector impedance low, reduce magnitude of switching. But we can help it turn off faster, by connecting a resistor between base and emitter.

It was a cost-cutting measure on a circuit board that needed to handle the current. And lucky me, all of us were in different states. This is done with plain transistor circuits as well:
