Melody Circuit 5. Simple Transistor Circuit 3. Darlington Pair 6. Flip-Flop 4. Resistor As name suggest it resists direct current in the circuit.
The greater the resistance the smaller the current will be. Resistances have a color coding scheme. LED 3. Variable Resistance 6. In the right hand side figure.
Light Dependent Resistor 8. Gold and silver color is present in every resistor to show its tolerance. For ex—A ohm resistor with gold band means that it can be ohm or can be 95 ohm also. LED are sensitive to voltage and high voltage can damage it permanently. So the resistance would be Blue 6. If you see in the figure right hand side. When there is a potential difference voltage across the conductors.
LED Symbol Warning: For calculation of resistance we need to read color from the opposite side of gold or silver band. As you can see the figure on right side. It passes current only when connected in right direction positive of diode to positive of battery and negative to negative and do not pass any current when connected in opposite direction.
Which means the first color should not be golden or silver. An Electrolytic Capacitor 7. It is same as a diode we have discussed earlier. Add a ohms resistance to bring down voltage. In simple words.. Electrolytic Capacitor A capacitor originally known as condenser is a passive two-terminal electrical component used to store energy in an electric field.
Its resistance becomes low and in dark its resistance is high. When Light falls on it. Symbol for preset or variable resistance A Variable Resistance 6. Potentiometer or Variable Resistance It is a resistance with a knob to increase or decrease the resistance. They are designed to be mounted directly onto the circuit board and adjusted only when the circuit is built. Preset These are miniature versions of the standard variable resistor.
Ceramic Capacitor It is same as electrolytic capacitor and stores electricity with the only difference that it is not polar and can be connected in any direction. When the spindle is rotated to a direction it will increase the resistance and when it rotated to another direction the resistance decreases. The pins are numbered anti-clockwise around the IC chip starting near the notch or dot.
Transistors should be correctly connected or a wrong connection may damage transistor. The holes in the middle portion of board are connected vertically as shown by highlighted lines.
Thermistor A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance varies significantly with temperature. It not only protects you from warm soldering temperatures and smoke but it also protect the circuit components from being damaged by high temperatures.
NPN transistor — E-emitter. It provides a fastest method of making a circuit and you can experiment with circuits by changing joints quickly and easily.
A Thermistor and its symbol Warning ICs are sensitive to voltages and wrong connections can damage them permanently. When heated. Transistor A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals and electrical power. The diagram shows the numbering for 8-pin and pin ICs.
The most popular timer IC 9. Breadboard Using breadboard to design a circuit is the easiest and safest way. A voltage or current applied to one pair of the transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals.
It is composed of semiconductor material with at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. Connections The figure on right side is showing the internal pins connections of a breadboard. Because the controlled output power can be higher than the controlling input power. They are complex circuits which have been etched onto tiny chips of semiconductor silicon.
Please refer the picture below. Its not so tough to find this wire. Bread Board Wire The best wire for breadboard is single core Only one thick wire with insulting sleeve copper wire.
You can print them with printer or you can make your own panel What is a Paper Panel?
A Paper panel is a interface for viewers. Now you can be more casual if you are making your project for fun or more serious and descriptive if you are making your project from a science fair.
Lets make hem up. Cut the holes for nuts. We can make them real easy. Just make a plus sign by paper cutting blade. Paper panels are included in this book as drawings with each circuit. It should be attractive. It should describe your project very well. As you see there is some theoretical knowledge provided to teach the circuit to fellow students and yourself.
Making a plastic panel is bit more complicated and require some manufacturing tools. You can buy a cardboard from stationery shop and cut it in exactly same size as your panel is and make holes for components. This panels shown on the right side are made by Laser cutting machine. After the board is ready we just need to assemble the panel and components on board.
Or you can make a plastic panel. So what is LED? A light-emitting diode LED is a semiconductor light source. If it is not lighting then swap its legs. The longer leg of LED should be connected to positive of battery as told in tip. As Simple as it is. This circuit will also teach you how to use kit and connect wires in bread- 1. The circuit is all about lighting LEDs with battery. Please refer to components definition section for more detail.
The Longer leg of LED is always positive and must be connected to positive terminal of battery. In the previous circuit we have added a variable resistance to dim the lights if needed. To convert the 3 wires into 2. A direct light is irritating for eyes I have tried to give a designer look to our lamp.
What we are going to do is just assemble the multiple LEDs circuit on MY Kit and design a front panel for our project.
Now its time to light up multiple LEDs. Step 1: Step 3: Screw the snap over LEDs and paste a small paper cutting on snap. Please refer video. Join the first 2 wires of variable resistance and use the joint and remaining one wire.
Lets Do it Step 1: Lets assemble the circuit. The dots give a mysterious look to the lamp when it is lighted up in dark.
Step 2: Cut the panel design page and paste it on MY Kit. Please refer diagram. More Ideas You also use this lamp as a photo frame, and stick your photo on the left space of panel, Use plastic tape and a paper to make a envelope, in which you can slide your photo in and it will protect your picture from dust and it will stay long.
Ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points. In Simple language, the law states that as voltage increases in a circuit, current also increases. Or as resistance decreases in a circuit, voltage increases. As stated by law, LED should get dimmer when resistance is increased in the circuit. Short left two wires of potentiometer and then lengthen the third wire and one wire from shorted pins.
Insert the two wires in breadboard. Place the battery and switch as shown in figure, we are using only two pins of switch. Demonstration Project Lets assemble the circuit on MY Kit and make a demonstration project for school science fair or for your friends. Similarly lengthen the switch wires also by adding some more wire to it.
Remember we are only using two wires of switch. Screw LED and switch to panel. Cut the panel drawing sheet and paste it on MY Kit panel. And your project is ready for display.
Transistor is a polar device and should be connected in correct direction of current. Identify the collector. The arrow in transistor symbol shows the direction of flow of current. R2 — ohms. So can you imagine how transistor acts as a switch? The answer lies in its base. There are about million transistors in Intel Pentium Core I5 processor. All computers in present day are made up of millions of transistors packaged in small ICs.
In most digital circuits like computer. SL or BC They don't know radio contains many transistors: We should recall what is transistor from previous section. Transistor is a very important component in modern day electronics. Simple Transistor Circuit In this section we will make: And insert transistor in breadboard. Find materials at: A small collector —base voltage milivolts turns on transistor and it allow a large current flow from collector to emitter which turns on the LED.
Like in binary system —1 means transistor is On and 0 means its Off. Identify the positive and negative wires of capacitor. You can even use this gadget near to door of any dark room and it will help you finding the way in room once you press the button.
Afterwards it will automatically go off. If LED doesn't light up.
With this circuit you can install a light with timer inside cupboard. Switch on to test the circuit. Panel Design for transistor as a switch 3.

With this gadget installed on the wall you no longer need anybody help you. It works on the back lights of car. So discover some new uses and let us know. The light sensor in this circuit senses the car back light and turn on its indicator to help driver see the indicator. Identify the positive and negative ends of LED and positive should be connected to Ohm resistor.
This circuit can be used in many other ways also. Flip-Flop In this section we will make: Op-amps or other devices cross-coupled by resistors or capacitors. Assemble the circuit making sure that electrolytic capacitors are the right way round. The circuit presented here is a particular multi-vibrator known as astable multi-vibrator. It is characterized by two amplifying devices transistors.
What is it about? A flip-flop or multi-vibrator is an electronic circuit used to implement a variety of simple two-state systems such as oscillators. And that the transistor leads are not touching each other where they come out of the bottom the transistors. The LED in this circuit flashes alternatively because each transistor is switched On and Off in turn due to C1 charging and discharging through R2 and C2 doing same through R Lets try to understand the functioning of flip flop by analyzing circuit given below.
If all is well. An astable multi-vibrator is a regenerative circuit consisting of two amplifying stages connected in a positive feedback loop by two capacitive -resistive coupling networks.. The circuit is usually drawn in a symmetric form as a crosscoupled pair and each element of pair have two states On and Off. The amplifying elements used here are transistors. Join more LEDs in parallel. Similarly if you decrease the value of capacitors then blink rate will be faster as capacitors will get discharged quickly.
If LEDs are not flashing close switch Complex. We have tried to simulate real circuit in the figure on left side. Lengthen the switch wires to insert them in breadboard. Step 5: Use snap to screw the battery. Lets assemble the circuit on MY Kit and make a demo project for your lab or for science fair. In battery red wire shows positive terminal and black is negative. Longer lead of LED is positive Step 2: Cut the panel design page shown in the figure on right and paste it on MY Kit.
And you Kit is ready to use and demonstrate how a flip flop oscillator circuit works.
Step 4: The resistance color bands are taken true to actual values. If switch is On. I tried white and blue LEDs alternatively. You can also redesign the panel drawing and make more cool designs. Do send it to us at: Try out the panel shown in the figure on right. If you are able to make a very cool design. It is designed for use in bells. The heart of this simple circuit is music IC UM Do not provide more then 4. Identify the pins of IC UM66 and transistor.
UM66T is a melody integrated circuit. It has 62 notes ROM to pl ay music. Not our own. Identify Piezo speaker pins and it should be connected in correct direction. For example. The tone generator is a programmed divider which produces certain frequencies. It has an inbuilt tone and a beat generator. Melody Circuit In this section we will make: Assemble the circuit. Pre-recorded one. Many versions of UM66T are available which generate tone of different songs. In this circuit.
If you don't listen to any sound. You can also use a speaker instead of piezo. Melody Circuit Tip: Loud Melody Circuit Indentify the pins of IC and transistor. Assemble the components and switch On the circuit.
You can use this circuit in any another projects also. Your circuit is ready. It needs very less current to turn LED On and the conby thrice or more. This configuration gives a much higher common-emitter current gain than each transistor taken separately.
BC Step2: Discover more from transistors. Lets first try to make a simple circuit and then use the circuit for further projects. Try to short them and see if Tip: You can increase the sensitivity of this LED is glowing up.
In some application the amount of input current available to switch on a transistor is very low. Use a switch between open points or use wires.
This may mean that a single transistor may not be able to pass sufficient current required by the load. This can be achieved by using a Darlington Pair. In electronics. Darlington Pair In this section we will make: Lovely circuits…. Iam electronic and communication engineering student. I am much into circuit project.
