Foolproofing open-collector outputs

March 3, 2021, 5:31 pm

Is there a relatively foolproof way to protect open collector outputs against over-voltage/over-current, when they're on terminal blocks that are user accessible? Designed to connect LEDs with li... Read more »

LED driver circuit.

March 3, 2021, 1:59 pm

I have a number of G9 non-dimmable led lamps (230V, 3W, 300lm). One just failed with very low light output, so I thought I'd have a look inside. Other than the led itself, there were only three c... Read more »
