Gee.. Me 65+ years. My first contact with them logic's was about in them mid-70's. There was allso something called 'DTL-logic', and ewen RTL-logic's, can you imagine that?. My first contact with a 'microcontroller' was a 1-bit data, 16-bit adress, (yes You read it right, one bit &amp; 16 bit), and concidered as 'wery' powerful as a microcontroller, because it had 'built-in' them all functions, I/O, RAM, EPROM (but not with EEPROM or FLASH, they were not invented, yet).

Hi!

Hi. Your on "right" track with your ible. Howewer, take a TV-reciver: it displays , (in Finland), 2x25 frames, (overlapping each other), ower your screen, thus giving you a illusion of a movement. Same thing at Movie theatre, with 25 frames/second. So if you speed up yuor LED-display with 8 leds to a speed of ~50fr./sec./8 LEDS to lit in a sequence/second, with only 1 lit at a time. The speed for ewery individual LED would be 1sec./50/8 = ~10msec./LED. That would be a speed of 100Hrz. And that would make it to seem if they "ALL" were lit at the same time. Make that freq. to be in 10's of KHz ~ up to MHz and you could lit up thousends of LED-s in a seq. and still it looks like to be lit all at the same time. So, the speed is not a issue here

• KISELIN commented on FarsinHamza's instructable LED CHASER With IC555 and IC40173 months ago

Oh Boy! Take a look at the tech. spec. of a 4017, and You will find out that it’s capable of MHz with its output, (that's in a class of ”million’s”/second). BUT ”STILL” with ”ONLY 1” output active at a time, so that said.

• KISELIN commented on FarsinHamza's instructable LED CHASER With IC555 and IC40173 months ago

Actually: 1.) The frequency of the shift can go up to MHz, (MegaHerzts = millions of changes/second), still, "JUST ONE" bit active at a time, so that.2.) The human "brain" can't make a difference in of an eye seen thing with an alternating speed of more than 25 "frames"/second, (e.g. "The movies" play appr. 25-50 "still-pictures"/second). That's why there "seems" to be more than one LED's lit at the same time. Take a look at the tech. spec. of 4017

• KISELIN commented on FarsinHamza's instructable LED CHASER With IC555 and IC40173 months ago

I just "LOVE" the 555. I've done dozens of app's with it since early '80,s, (Yes, allmost 40 years ago). Your ible is wery nice for a beginner, it gives a "hum" of the functionality of the 555 and the digital side of functions with the 4017. However, because only one output of the 4017 is active at a time (HIGH), wouldn't it be smarter to have only 1 resistor common to all, (the cathode side)?

OK.As You can see in Step 2, (the picture), I’m using a ”ribbon cable” with IDC-conectors, 6-poles, head to head: UNO ICSP <--> Programmer J1. The problem for me was, as I discribe in Step 1, the ”reset” on UNO ICSP pin 6.This is the ”HARD” reset on UNO. There’s a way to go around that but I’m not doing it. That’s why I rather connect the ”reset” to pin 10 (SS) on UNO.Doing this I got another problem: To separate the ”reset/ SS” lead from the ribbon cable.Well, I did it this way: 1.

• KISELIN commented on DIY Circuits's instructable Modular UV LED Exposure Unit11 months ago

You are so right. How "stupid of me"? I kind'a missed that with a booster. It's absolutely correct as You discribe it. 1 question: what kind of UV-led you used? UVA or UVB or could there be some pros. by using a "mix" of both. Gonna absolutely build one and "add" a timer there. For now I have a "555"/relay based timer for my 300W "Solar UVA" lamp, (yes, you read it right, three hundred Watt), :)

Hi. Good enough for the purpose. I would add a function here: Use a "fade in the next lifght to be and fade out the actual light, in a way that they "owerlap" each other.

Nice job. I’ve been making of these photores. PCB’s for decades (~ 30+ years), both single- & double sided. Yet, thanks to You, I’ll got some good hint’s here. I’ve be’n allways using a ”solarium UV-light” but that’s NOT practical thus be’ing a 300W one. Gonna build a LED-frame like Your’s.Some hint’s from my behalf: 1. After developing, rince the PCB under such hot water You ewer can, thus making the PCB-copper to be warm. This decreases the etch time. 2. I use to clean the PCB from the resist ”before” drilling, and I’ll do that with ”technical pure aceton”, because the nail-polish-remover has oil in it, and that’s not so good.3.

Hi. Niiiice job. Just some propose’s: I would rather make them pattern’s, (column’s), with 5 in each, thus gaining to use ½ of the Voltage e.g. instead of ~38V you need only 18V or use pattern’s of 3 = 3,3V*3= 9,9V and use a 12V power. Of course the layout would be a bit more complicated but not much, (just a couple more resistors and wiring). This allso gives you the benefit of need to drop the voltage just 12V - 9,9 = 2,1V with the resistors, and this way you get the poss. to use higher mA with less power loss.

Hi. I forget 3 times of 10 to put the "owerlapping" shrink at first on the cable :) :) as You did forget it here :). rafununu says absolutely Right: " Shift cutting and stripping from one to the next wire ,doing like this will drastically reduce the diameter of the repaired cable" that allso reduces the risk of "short" if the "shrink isolation" brakes.

• KISELIN commented on SpectreTECH's instructable Multiple LEDs on a Single Resistor1 year ago

Hi. Actually I use use in my apps. them LED's to be limited to 10~15mA thus NOT giving the full brightnes, bu to raise from 15 => to 20mA wan't make the brightnes to increase noticebly. The wattage of the resistor is of a less matter, e.g. if needed voltage drop from the source to LED's (RED=2,0V), then with 9V: 9-2=7V ; 7V*0,02A = 0,35W thus a 1/2 Watt resistor will do the job.

Just them colours

Gee nice job You've done. Anyway, I try to help You with thi dilemma of them colour-codes. I sort them by a system developed by/for me only. The first 3' rings, (there are resistors with 4 ring's + the tolerance ring = 5 rings), on a resistor tell you; ( don't mind the 4' th ring, which is allways marked "wider" as to be the tolarance of the resistor, 1 to 20% ), Try this, (with 3 rings ending with a colour of):Black will be in a class of just ohm'sBrown will be in a class of 100's ohmsRed in a class of kiloohm'sOrange in a class of 10's of kiloohmsEtc... mega... giga.. tera.. atto..

Actually You should start with black.... = 0 . Black isn't actually a colour at all.... black is black.. as they sing in them 60's, but there's a dilemma, Don't use the third ring as a multiplier, (black is zero multiplied with.... gives you zero), the third ring ONLY says how many zeros you put there.... after them 2 ring's, e.g. brown, brown, brown will make: 2, 2, +1 = 220 Note! It mearly is a symbolic , (not a mathematical ), way to show it's value

Colour codes

• Don't bilieve this explained above

INPUT/OUTPUT?Where is the input = recharge? Where is the output = charge? You got me lost there?

A Li-Ion battery like a 18650 has a "nominal" voltage of 3.7Volts, (and ewen then there are 2 cell's connected in serious, thus ewery individual cell producing a voltage over a potentional of appr. 1.85Volt/cell). Still, to "recharge" a battery, it requires a higher potential of voltage to be done, You can't just "take" some You allso need to "give" someYour picture shows with the multimeter some 12.4Volt. Right? You'we just recharged them batterys.... but just wait for an 2 minutes and do the measurement again.... TaDaa,,,, it want read ower 12V again... Hmmmmmmm..

Gee.. ewerything that's useful is allready there for sale, BUT to create something that's NOT useful is kind of a skill of art to create something nobody else have done before. To create something "not usefull" takes as much of effort to create something useful... & vice versa

There you go. Neither did them in those days living "average" people understand of them "innovators" creating totally useless things.

Just a note for them not have used the 555. Take the advantage of the pin 7, recharge, it's an open collector output to recharge the cap/res for the treshold. It can be used the same way as the output pin 3, thus beeing active when it's time to recharge the cap

You saved my day. Got a big, Fat, Good laugh. "This" is a real "BONK", useless thing, excellent. Once upon the time there were people saying: "This monster, a Automobile, what on earth do we need it for?", "for god's sake we have them horses". And then there was this Italian guy "Marconi", he disclaimed something stupid of to communicate electrically "wireless, (via Eter),". Then them "REALLY BIG guys from IBM said: "the whole WORLD will do with 6, (read: six), powerful computers, say: 100MHz/ 4bit pros./ .... ++++ many other's in those days concidered constuctors of "USELESS" machines to be stupid.How wrong were they???Trust me if I say that this your 555 inspires 1000's of people, because of it's reversed...

If you put them batterys in series you'll get battery1 + battery2 +battey3 = 1,5V +1,5V +1,5V gives you 4,5V Comprende? If you put put them parallel you got the accesibilty of that them Amps they can provide, still 1,5V in output

Actually, the efficient "work" named "P" is as power in a factor in electricity, (and ower all), P=U*I, Hmm... to define "P" ..I think the "P" is about the same thing as lifting a weight of 1Kg from a niveau of 0 to 1meter in 1 second. Correct me if I'm wrong.As in electricity we allways talk about "Watt's and Amp's", Com'on "Watts" are the product, (Power), delievered by Volts*Amps, how hard can that be to understand, (not you).
