SCR Shunt Circuit for Protecting LED Drivers

The post presents an effective method for protecting capacitive LED driver circuits through an SCR shunt regulator circuit and explains how it can prevent filter capacitors from blowing of and LEDs from getting destroyed. The remedy was requested by Mr. Max Payne. Protecting High Watt LEDs Please suggest regarding 3W, 5W LED bulb circuit design fault. … Read moreSCR Shunt Circuit for Protecting LED Drivers

Simple Scrolling RGB LED Circuit

A simple RGB (Red, Green, Blue) moving or scrolling LED display can be made using a few 4017 ICs. Let’s learn the procedure in detail. Understanding RGB LED RGB LEDs have become quite popular these days due to its three-in-one color feature, and because these can be driven independently using three distinct supply sources. I … Read moreSimple Scrolling RGB LED Circuit

How Thyristors (SCR) Work – Tutorial

Basically an SCR ( Silicon Controlled Rectifier) which is also known by the name Thyristor works quite like a transistor. What  SCR Stands for The device gets its name (SCR) due to its multi layered semiconductor internal structure which refers to the “silicon” word in the beginning of its name. The second part of the … Read moreHow Thyristors (SCR) Work – Tutorial
