The half-wave rectifier rectification process.
Polarization of semiconductor diode in the forward and in the reverse direction. Input and output waveforms
Doorbell for Deaf People.
When a deaf person is alone in a house, it would be very difficult to realize that someone is knocking on the door without any visual warning signal.
The main component for the Doorbell for the deaf circuit is the CMOS 4001 integrated circuit, which has four two input NOR gates
What is a sequential circuit? The main difference between a combinational circuit and a sequential circuit is that in the sequential circuit there is a feedback from one or more of the outputs to one or more of the inputs. Looking at the following diagram, you can see that the output of the OR gate is feedbacked to the input of the lower AND […]
What is a Schottky Diode? The Schottky diode or Schottky Barrier Diode unlike the semiconductor diode that has a P-N juntion, has an N-Metal junction. These diodes are characterized by their switching speed and low voltage drop when they are forward biased (typically 0.25 to 0.4 volts). Its symbol is showed on the following diagram. This diode works allmost like the […]
This Electric Current Flow Indicator gives a visual indication that there is a current flow. Possible applications for this small circuit may be: a battery charger, a voltage power source, etc.
In order to achieve our objective we place 3 rectifier diodes in series, which in turn are in series with the load / battery.
