Rustl3rs Custom Smart LED Light
Those drivers could run fourteen leds but just went with twelve. This means that i could add 12 leds to mine with no extra drivers. Not that i will do that now but if my tank gets bigger (honey i swear the tank has been growing from day one you just havent noticed until now) i can add 12 without a driver. Cool. When reading these things, Start...
Bar graph LED
Using a 555 with perhaps a 4029, and I would add a 4511, then connect the pins (using resistors of course), of the bargraph leds, to "a-g" pins of the 4511. To top it all off the graphs I received are all common anode, which is a pain because I`m not too savy like that. I know what a 555 timer is but I wouldn`t have a clue as to wire them with...
Wanted the flashlight to be squat so I could hold it in my mouth, throw it in mypocket, and lay it on a surface with the beam shootingup. I wanted to build it for about $15, which was around 1/4 what they were selling for when I started the project. Prices dropped. When the Dorcy 41-4262 got down to $20 and lithium batteries got down to $1. 50,...
Arduino LED Control Using DIP Switch
Christmas LED Light String Display
This project shows how to build a simple LED light string display using seven 24V LED light strings. I built this project for Christmas 2009 in order to decorate my balcony with lights. The light strings used are very common and (at least in Sweden) can be purchased from many places during the Christmas period. The hardware design is very simple a
LED Colour Organ circuit
Nearly all the existing designs I found used direct switching of the lights (with no software control in between) and contained manual potentiometers for light sensitivity and overall gain setting. Furthermore, I couldn`t find many references to the frequency filter circuitry explaining the frequencies the circuit was designed to detect and why...
RGB LED Love Heart
This project creates a RGB LED lit love heart which is controlled by a PIC12F683 microcontroller. I designed the project as a gift for my wife on our 15th wedding anniversary (since she puts up with my addiction to electronics I thought she deserved something in return!). The love heart is made from a 200x150x6mm sheet of plexi-glass which is cut
USB RGB LED VU Meter
This project creates a RGB LED VU Meter which is controlled via USB by a Windows 7 or Vista host machine. The project serves several purposes: Firstly, it demonstrates how to read audio information from the Windows machine and pass this over USB to the device (which is a question which popped up several times after my USB Performance Monitor proje
Single Display LED Frequency Counter
As equipment becomes increasingly more compact, designers are often obliged to follow suit by reducing the size of displays. At some point, the usefulness of the display can become compromised. I, for one, dislike having to peer intently at tiny displays in an attempt to read vital information, if only because it serves as a reminder that my eyesi
LED Lighting For Dual-Filament Lamps
Before we describe how it`s done, note that we recommend that the result be checked as having sufficient brightness for a stop & tail-light application. That`s because the light output may be inadequate, depending on the tail-light lens and reflector assembly - so use any modified lamps with discretion! As shown, an additional diode (D1) and resis
Constant Current LED Drive
However, for applications needing many LEDs, this becomes extravagantly inefficient and it is tempting to keep the voltage drop across the resistor as small as possible. That leads to poor control of the current. ICs such as the MM5450 and its relatives and the A6275 and its relatives provide constant current outputs so that the current through...
The idea behind this economical‚ ashing LED indicator is very simple. It uses a very low frequency oscillator to drive two LEDs. As can be seen in the circuit diagram, the LEDs are connected in anti-parallel. At every change in level there will only be a current ¬‚ow for a short time, due to the large capacitor (C3) that is connected in series

LED Dance Pad
Using LEDs as light sensors. A DDR pad. We designed our pad to have no moving parts. Instead, we chose to measure light reflectance off the user`s feet to determine if one of the arrows was being stepped on or not. Since a design with no moving parts offers little to no tactile feedback, we wanted to make sure the pad offered some other form of...
PWM Controller Simplifies High Power LED Designs
High brightness (HB) and super HB LEDs are found in LCD TFT backlighting in highend TVs, industrial lighting, and projectors. One popular area is for instrument panel backlighting, interior lighting, and the brake lights of many cars and trucks. Luxury automobile manufacturers are increasingly taking advantage of the latest technologies in solid-s

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...
Simple Metal detector circuit with CD4030
Sometimes the precious metals are hidden too deep and are not detected except with complicated devices. In many cases, however, small pieces of precious metal buried near the surface can be detected by relatively simple means. Everyone is very attractive to find something potentially valuable, hidden a few centimeters below the soil. So many...
Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots
Many times for various reasons we forget or can not water the plants that we have in our homes. And many humidity sensors units just notify us with a beeping sound or with a flashing light, that the pot needs watering. But what if we are away from home? This circuit comes as a solution to this problem. Depending on humidity of the pot at...
Simple deep searching metal detector circuit
The principle behind a metal detector is really very simple. Proof of this is the circuit that follows, in which it proves that the construction of a metal detector can be done in the minute, with few components that we find very easily everywhere. With the circuit of this metal detector, it is possible to detect a metal coin in depth of 90 to...
Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
100W HiFi Audio Amplifier Circuit
This Amplifier was designed to have the following specifications: Distortion less than 0.1% at full power of 100W even at 20KHz. Power has to be attributed to an extended bandwidth. The output transistors must be protected against short circuits. The power supply must be symmetrical so that no electrolytic capacitors are needed at the outlet....
Plant-Pot Water Level Indicator Circuit
A series of LEDs serve to alert the gardener when plants need water. Using two conventional digital integrated LEDs and a series of LEDs, we make a very useful device for gardening. The device detects the amount of water in the pot and alerts the grower. The circuit of the device is shown in Figure 2. The water detection is made from the bottom...
Analogue Sound Preasure dB-Meter Circuit
The best human ear can capture sounds from 20Hz to 20KHz. These limits are known to be the broadest that can exist. Normally the normal limits range from 100Hz to about 13KHz and depend on the age and health of the individual. We for our measurements and to have a good accuracy we will get the limits of 20Hz to 20KHz. A sound to be heard does...
