Simple capacitance meter bins parts


This Design Idea describes a simple two-chip CMOS circuit that can sort capacitors into 20 bins over a wide range (100pF to 1╬╝F), using 10 LEDs to display the value range. The circuit is power efficient and can be run using two CR2032 cells. As such, it can be built into a handheld probe. by Raju Baddi

Multicolored LED with CD4093

This project is a multicolored LED light based on CD4093. Adjusting the brightness of each group is provided by a generator whose frequency is fixed but whose duty cycle (temporal relationship between high and low) is variable. It consists of a fixed frequency oscillator and variable duty cycle for each of three colors. Each oscillator operates independently, which helps determine the degree of brightness of each red, green and blue.
