LM3909 PDF

General Description. The LM is a monolithic oscillator specifically designed to flash. Light Emitting Diodes. By using the timing capacitor for voltage boost. 25 Jan Yes, for me, it’s nostalgic to think about my favorite LED Driver LM from NSC ! This ubiquitous chip is very smart in that it stores up energy. This page features a replacement circuit for the LM LED Flasher / Oscillator using discrete components. The circuit is functionally the same as the integrated .

Using dozens of transistors easily. Roff Well-Known Member Jan 23, I downloaded it sometime ago from the internet.

There Once Was an IC Dedicated to Blinking an LED

For specific purposes, this device was way better than a generic LM By the rate something flasher equal to 2V.

Did you have strobes on he corners of your mortarboard for graduation?

Hi, You could try this link, but I think you’d be happier with the However, does the wire affect the pm3909 produced. Everything has limits, a 0. Unfortunately the LM is not available anymore. The circuit is functionally the same as the integrated LM but has a minor variations in values of the components used.


It will blink with a frequency of about 11 microHertz. What would running the transmitter circuit at 3 volts do.

Stuff that Fil wrote: Projects: BikeLite

Playstation 1 motherboard housing fell off, help! This circuit can use to is Lamp warn at fine the frequency of something Flasher get.

This is especially true of l3909 such as the “Across Track Infrared Detection” circuits and any other circuit that relies on other than direct electronic inputs, such as switches. My attempts to repair the circuit were unsuccessful. Leave a Reply Cancel reply.

An application for the LM3909 flasher chip

Proton New Member May 9, My neighbors have deployed a considerable number of those already. When build capacitor uF sizes suit 1 pin and 2 adaptation pin modify by the tow electronic part outside.

Also I have a question about inducting signals with coils. It as a result make LED1 bright about 0. The circuit above operated at a frequency of approximately one hertz with a capacitor value of microfarads. Your email address will not be published. I was surprised that there was enough energy in the system to achieve that. The LM is also available through some lm909 electronics sources but usually only in quantities of hundreds or thousands of pieces.


Someone here designed a replacement: Some time around I potted one in epoxy with a D cell. Using discrete transistors for llm3909 application is not precise but will be acceptable in this circuit. The components are a 10 uf electric cap a.

Well, this is all related to building the tracking transmitter I’m assuming. It appears that the IC finally failed. By using our website and services, you lm309 agree to the placement of our performance, functionality and advertising cookies. I used the basic circuit to flash my first name initial on a seven-segment single-digit numeral display with a D size battery and it lasted almost 2 years. Email required Address never made public.

Today you can buy flashing LEDs; a simple two-lead component that requires only a power supply to produce even flashes of light. LM alternatives There are a number of alternative low power flasher designs here: The schematic is available in the interwebs.
