Discrete Robot

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Discrete Robot

This simple robot, which responds to light and avoids obstacles, can be built without using a microcontroller, programmer or PC. The only ‘special’ component in the circuit is a window discriminator (a fancy version of a window comparator). Resistors R1 and R2 in combination with light-dependent resistors LDR1 and LDR2… Read more »

IR–S/PDIF Receiver

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on IR–S/PDIF Receiver

This simple circuit proves to achieve surprisingly good results when used with the IR–S/PDIF transmitter described elsewhere in this site. The IR receiver consists of nothing more than a photodiode, a FET and three inverter gates used as amplifier. The FET is used as an input amplifier and filter, due… Read more »
