Actually I am not using it to trigger any arduino pin..
QuoteActually I am not using it to trigger any arduino pin.. So what are you using it for?
Cheap, good and small:SOT-89 (7805): 1.6mm x 4.6mm, area 7.36mm2, SOT-416 (DTC114W): 1.7mm x 0.9mm, area 1.53mm2, $0.20 eachI/O Connections: VIN 0-30V, OUT (inverted) connected to PIC input with Pull-up enabled.
I am actually using it to trigger a SMD 8 Pin PIC Microcontoller..
Not how the manufacturer envisioned its use, but should work just fine.
Here's what the Society of Robots has to say about that.
I am unable to make out how will it work..I went through the datasheet too, bu cant make out..It would be kind of you, if you can elaborate please..
QuoteI am actually using it to trigger a SMD 8 Pin PIC Microcontoller..What does that mean?By trigger do you mean turn on, like applying power controlled by something else?That sounds like an even worse idea.
So what's the argument against using simple resistor divider with a zener just in case the input exceeds 16V?
