61  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Using Arduino uno to burn bootloader error on: January 12, 2013, 11:10:35 pm
I hooked the board as in the picture I posted in post 2 I used the sketch that comes with the arduino ide ver 1.0.3  windows 7

It's just sat there and then it would pop up a error that I posted changed to my old laptop which has ver1.0.2 of the ide and windows XP  and it happly burned all 3 chips .

I burned it with no problem on my old computer.

Auto-reset not disabled on the programmer I pulled the chip from the uno and hooked it up on the bread board with 16mhz crystal just as it is on the the uno Im doing it like this

Try to burn bootloader on to blank chips atmega328P

I get this error after about a minute

20 volt 2 amp drop that's 40 watts

This is a switching mode regulator.

There's onboard thermal regulation which prevents anything excess current being delivered to the LED.

That doesn't mean the less-than-excessive voltage from the regulator wouldn't cause excessive current / power dissipation on the led.

No, the board does not regulate current output at all: they call it a voltage regulator for a reason.


Read the data sheet it said if the output is shorted the chip decreases the voltage

you saying ohm 's law don't apply dherry if the voltage goes down the current can't go up.

20 volt 1 ohm load 20amps  5 volt 1 ohm load 5 amps

Now whats this say

(3) The oscillator frequency reduces to approximately 18 kHz in the event of an output short or an overload which causes the regulated
output voltage to drop approximately 40% from the nominal output voltage. This self protection feature lowers the average power
dissipation of the IC by lowering the minimum duty cycle from 5% down to approximately 2%.

If you look at the board you posted there no way that board can handle a 20 volt 2 amp drop that's 40 watts
the chip should shut down, lower its voltage not increase it.

I volt this one http://www.thebox.myzen.co.uk/Tutorial/Inputs.html  It has real " sound knowledge"

Nice site Mike

How do you get this to work the OP didn't even tell what transistor he was having problems with.

I remember when I was a kid and tube's where king I read about transistor's and I got my hands on one and it
was a big power transistor I hooked it up as a amp to a crystal set and my speaker didn't put out sound.

I wasn't driving the base with a enough current to turn it on.

I would also keep h-bridge, MOSFET to one side of the board and not run any signal tracks under them.

I have seen that it works better to keep power and motor control switching more to there self. And run signal line to them far less noise pick up. And as said don't loop the gnd or the VDD line.

Grumpy_Mike You had not posted and when I did your post showed up so I left the quote. it just added to your post.

There are two types of transistors, which have slight differences in how they are used in a circuit. A bipolar transistor has terminals labeled base, collector, and emitter. A small current at the base terminal (that is, flowing between the base and the emitter) can control or switch a much larger current between the collector and emitter terminals. For a field-effect transistor, the terminals are labeled gate, source, and drain, and a voltage at the gate can control a current between source and drain.

I'll leave it But Bipolar transistor are current controlled

On some long SK boards there is no connection 1/2 way between the power rails.  Move the power wires closer to the I.C.

That could be it he is half way down the rail

Pull those caps off just to see if there loading the crystal I have seen to much bread board capacitance load the crystal.

Well I tried the link you posted and filled out the forum And there a whole new set of datasheets these tell you something thanks  Krodal
