Once plugged into the Arduino board it will looks like: They differs from the building technique which results in different specifics. Now, I know how to use three new electronic components: A similar result could have been optooupler using the MOS Irf transistor. What does this circuit do?

We can use the same program used for the transistor example above. As you can see each time the output on pin 2 is HIGH our transistor will get a voltage on its base connector resulting in the collector and the emittor getting connected. It can be easealy understood while looking at the following picture from the 4N35 datasheet which shows us the inside schematics of the 4N This behaviour make the transistor the perfect component for interface two different circuits operating at different voltages.

Originally submitted by fabio on In normal state the collector and emitter are disconnected but, when a current is applied to the base connector, the transistor change its state and the collector and emitter get connected thus current can flows between them.


Hi J, So the difference is that a resistor isn’t directional and will therefore allow current to flow from either side. A simple Arduino based circuit using a diode We can build this simple circuit to show how diodes works: Thanks a lot Submitted by N.

In the simple Arduino based circuits transistors are usually used as switch for electronic signals. For example one circuit could be the one powered by Arduino: Good article Submitted by AN not verified on Sun, This is the result: The difference here is that we can leave the base unconnected and just use the LED legs 1 and 2 to connect the collector and the base.

Thanks for Submitted by fabio on Sun, This is good when you don’t want a component further along in the system to affect previous components. This is preferable against the one explained before because it won’t float when the microcontroller is shut off or when it is not actively drive the pins. Dataasheet that the circuit coming from Vin 9V is actually completely separated from the one coming from datzsheet Arduino board.

Thanks for these precisions, it helped me to understand a lot too! You can download the video from http: Leg 3 isn’t connected to anything: Instead, if we revert optocouplee diode so that current now flows in the opposite direction, we’ll se that the LED won’t turn on when we press the button.

A simple Arduino based circuit using transistors We will use a transistor controlled by the Arduino board to act as a switch on an external circuit. But i’m a bit perplex when i’ll have to choose between the last 2 techniques transistor, opto and rely could be added An optical isolator on the other hand works similar to a diode in that it only lets unidirectional transmission.

I suppose in this case, an optical isolator would prevent surges and other damaging events from passing to the parts that work well, while a resistor would let it pass right on through. This is the circuit: Confused Submitted by Hubschrauber not verified on Sun, Thus, the diode can be thought of as an electronic version of a check valve.

Transistors usually have 3 connectors called collectorbase and emitter. The BC is not capable of delivering lot of current so use it with care.

Once assembled on the Arduino board, the circuit will looks like: Thanks for this simple explanation, very useful for a beginner like me. I have fixed the image and also added an improved circuit which should be better.

Transistors A transistor is a semiconductor device which can be used to amplify or switch electronic signals. You can see a demo in the video below.

Probably related to power necessary. But we can understand how diodes works with it. For all the details have a look at the detailed specifics linked above but they mostly work the same way: This unidirectional behavior is called rectification, and is used to convert alternating current to direct current, and to extract modulation from radio signals in radio receivers. Hi I have read that in Submitted by Anonymous not verified on Tue, Conclusions Now, I know how to use three new electronic components:
