30-Khz Bandwidth High Linearity Opto-Isolated Amplifier

Using optocoupler to directly transfer a linear (analog) voltage would produce  a large unpredictable linearity error, which is also sensitive to temperature changes. By using frequency modulation, the total system’s linearity will  depend only on the linearity of the V/F and F/V converter, which is fortunately cancel each other if we use similar devices with …

220V Power Line Interface

This is a simple 220V power interface circuit. This circuit used as interface for monitoring electric devices and equipments using a computer. The circuit only senses whether the device being monitored is turned off or on. The galvanic isolation between the AC main line being monitored and the interface to the computer is an important …

Laser Diode Driver

A  laser diode driver can be implemented using voltage-controlled current source.  This simple  linear laser diode driver gives cleaner drive current than a switched (PWM) drivers. Here is the schematic diagram of the circuit: A Howland current pump with a current booster is used as the basic of this laser diode driver. Q1 is used …
