This circuit uses the Buck/Boost Converter circuit for typically for use in a lab bench power supply. It features both adjustable voltage AND current using potentiometers.
Without a buck/boost converter,a computer power supply can only provide a 3.3V, 5V and 12 supply lines. With the buck/boost converter created with the aid of a 555 timer, adjustable voltage is allowed. A simple transistor is us...
**555 timer based PWM LED dimmer**
This project uses PWM to turn on and off a LED (or a strip of them) really fast and changes the duty cycle (Fig.1) so that the human brain perceive it as the dimming of the LED(s). This means that the MOSFET doesn’t have to drop large amount of voltage, this makes the device very energy efficient.
A simple but flawed idea to make a fixed frequency variable duty cycle oscillator based on a 555
timer and using the push-pull output to drive the RC timing through two routing diodes, a pot and a
series resistor to limit the min/max duty cycle to something sensible at around 9%/91%.
If the diode drops were negligible and the 555 timer output pulled fully up to VCC and down to
Water detector with 4 level stages. Each stage makes the 555 timer to give a supply period for the buzzer. The active buzzer transmits sound with a pause period between 0.5-3 seconds, depending on the level detected.
