5V-3V3-Reg-Board-PCB-Design-550x448

by tehnikservice.net:

The board includes AMS1117 – 5V voltage regulator and AMS1117–3.3V, Voltage Regulator, providing fixed supply voltages. It features three voltage input options: a screw terminal connector, DC adapter connector and USB connector. It can operate on 6-12V DC power supply and has separate screw terminals for 3.3V and 5V outputs.

lpg-sensor-using-arduino

by praveen @ circuitstoday.com:

A simple LPG sensor using arduino is shown in this article. This circuit indicates the amount of LPG in the air. The circuit sounds an alarm and trips a relay when the concentration is above a predetermined level. MQ2 is the gas sensor used in this project. MQ2 is an SnO2 based gas sensor which can sense gases like methane, propane, butane, alcohol, smoke, hydrogen etc. Since LPG primarily contains propane and butane, MQ2 sensor can be used for sensing LPG. The figure below shows the schematic and arrangement of an MQ2 gas sensor.

Control of up to 680 pixels on any of the popular LED strips from any device with a USB port! One controller to rule them all!

Working with addressable LED strips, we’ve found that the extra components required to communicate with and power them complicate designs and limit the options for how they can be used. Each chipset requires its own special protocol and supporting hardware components. This is where the AllPixel comes in. Think of it as a video card for your LED strips.

Someday soon, your milk carton may be able to tell you that the milk has spoiled, or your bandage may indicate that it needs changing. These and other things could be made possible by a new technique developed at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, which allows disposable electronics to be printed on a variety of surfaces, using an existing T-shirt printer.

Isolated DC/DC converters are required in a broad range of applications including power metering, industrial programmable logic controllers (PLCs), insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) driver power supplies, industrial fieldbus, and industrial automation. These converters often are used to provide galvanic isolation, improve safety, and enhance noise immunity. Moreover, they can be used to generate multiple output voltage rails including dual-polarity rails.

by NXP:

The NXP Flyback SMPS Design Tool helps you design flyback power supplies using NXPs TEA1721, TEA1723, TEA1733 and TEA1738 family. The TEA1721(A, B, D, F) family, the TEA1723(A, B, D, F) family, the TEA1733(A, B, C, M, L) family and TEA1738(F, G, L) family are low cost Switched Mode Power Supply (SMPS) controller IC’s intended for flyback topologies.

The latest update of the tool combines the TEA172x family and the TEA173x family into one tool. It comes along with a new style and an improved flow. Now it is also possible to export all design parameters, results and graphs automatically into an Excel sheet for post-processing or presentation purposes. Furthermore the database of transformer cores is extended.

Offered with fixed output voltages of 4.75 V, 5.0 V, 5.25 V and 5.5 V or an adjustable output voltage, the MIC2875 and MIC2876 2-MHz boost regulators from Micrel are capable of supplying up to 2 A of output current, while occupying just 122 mm2 of board space. These synchronous regulators also achieve efficiency of up to 95% and are well-suited for operation from a single-cell lithium battery and providing power to applications such as USB on-the-go and HDMI hosts, tablets, and smart phones.

The low-profile devices offer bidirectional load disconnect to prevent current flow between input and output when the regulator is disabled. Under light loads, the parts reduce the switching frequency to extend battery life. Other features include bypass mode operation when the input voltage exceeds the set output voltage and an anti-ringing switch to minimize EMI issues during discontinuous mode.
