    Easy SSTC, Slayer Exciter On Steroids!

    The transistor driver is probably more robust, I'm going to make one, thanks ;)

    Easy SSTC, Slayer Exciter On Steroids!

    Hi Max,I use separate power supply to power the mosfet driver (I'm French and I haven't found the DS0026 for sale in Europe so I use a TC426). When I powered the mosfet driver on 12V the current in the ic was 10 to 20mA. After that I increased gradually the power in the circuit (mosfet+primary coil). At approximately 18V the current has increased to the limiting value of my power supply (3.1A) wisch has produced a strange humming. The current in my ic was at 310mA so I turned off the power supply. My mosfet (irfp460) is not dead, because it switches on when I touch the gate. Unfortunately, my TC426 is now constantly very hot (and I measured 200mA on vdd) so I think it burned but I don't know why (I use 1n4148 diodes but now I don't know if they work)... I still have another TC426 and an...see more »Hi Max,I use separate power supply to power the mosfet driver (I'm French and I haven't found the DS0026 for sale in Europe so I use a TC426).

I still have another TC426 and an ICL7667 but I am afraid about burning them :/My power supply is an ELC AL936N. Any suggestions?thank you in advance :)
