Micropower double ended limit detector
The detector uses three sections of an L144 and a DC4011 type CMOS NAND gate to make a very low power voltage monitor. If the input voltage, Vin, is above Vhigh or below Vlow, the output will be a logical high. If (and only if) the input is between the limits will the output be low
The current tracer helps locate a defective IC that is loading down the power supply. The tracer amplifies the small voltage drop caused by current flow along a fraction of an inch of PC wiring and drives an ordinary microammeter. Needle-point test probes are used to contatt the edge of a PC trace and to follow the current to determine which...

80V Linear Regulator is Micropower
Industrial, automotive and telecom applications pose tough design challenges due to harsh operating environments and large voltage transients on already high (12V to 48V) rails. Some switching power supplies are robust enough to provide localized low voltage/high current power from high voltage input rails, but switch-mode supplies are...
Micropower DC/DC Converter circuits
The design of battery-powered equipment can often be quite challenging. Since few ICs can operate directly from the end-of-life voltage from a 2-cell battery (about 1.8V), most systems require a DC/DC converter. The system designer often has a limited area in which to place the DC/ DC converter; associated inductors and capacitors must be...

micro power flasher draws less than 50 µA
Some applications require a circuit to indicate that a battery`s voltage has fallen below a certain value. However, if you don`t frequently check the indicator, the low-battery indicator itself can easily discharge the battery. The circuit in Figure 1 indicates when the battery voltage has dropped below a preset value. The circuit draws less...
Low-battery indicator uses fleapower
It is always desirable to use a low-battery indicator that consumes as little power as possible. For a 9V, 450-mAhr alkaline battery, a 50-µA low-battery indicator can by itself run the battery down in a little more than a year. Battery-powered devices that need to run continuously for a long time require battery indicators that consume minimal...

The LT®1500/LT1501 current mode step-up regulators control both the maximum and minimum inductor current, resulting in continuous inductor current and nearly constant switching frequency and output ripple over a wide load current range. The switching frequency depends mainly on the input and output voltages and the value of the inductor used.
Motor controller uses micro power

Reset generator uses "fleapower"
When a processor-controlled device must operate reliably, designers often choose to periodically reset the processor rather than rely on a watchdog configuration. In low-power systems, this periodic-reset circuit can consume a large part of the system`s current budget or may fail to operate at low voltages. The circuit in Figure 1 generates a...

Micropower Buck/Boost Circuits
Two combinations of cell count and output voltage are to be strictly avoided: three cells converted to 3.3V and four cells converted to 5V. These combinations are troublesome because no ordinary regulator (boost, buck or linear) can accommodate a situation where the input voltage range overlaps the desired output voltage.
Micropower Buck/Boost Circuits, Part 2
You can expect 100mA output from LT1303 based circuits and 300mA from the LT1372 circuit without modification. All of the circuits feature output disconnect; in shutdown the outputs fall to 0V.

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...

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...
