I have a small board with 2 small push button tactile switches. The intention is to have them control an LED light : 1 switch for 'on' and one switch for 'off'.
The circuit is 12V DC.
Actually there are a number of LEDs, but for the problem at hand, we'll keep it simple and say there is only 1.
The 'on' switch is connected to a C106D1G Reverse Blocking Thyristor ( Gate pin ). The Cathode pin connects to ground, and the Anode pin to the LED, the LED to a resistor, and the resistor to 12V+.
My desire is to have the 'on' operation a simple push of the button ( as opposed to a toggle switch ). The setup as I have it does work for the 'on' operation.
What I don't know how to do, is to wire the bottom tactile switch to interrupt the circuit between the Ground and the Cathode pin.
Is there any way I can use basic components ( resistors / transistors / etc ) to make button 2 interrupt the Ground signal to the Gate ?
