PNP Transistor – How Does It Work?

The PNP transistor is a mystery to many. But it doesn’t have to be. If you want to design circuits with transistors, it’s really worth knowing about this type of transistor. For example: Want to automatically turn on a light when it gets dark? The PNP transistor will make this easy for you. In my article how transistors work, I explained how a standard NPN transistor works. If you haven’t already, I’d reall ...

Simple SSR has zero-cross on/off switching

This Design Idea is a solid state relay (SSR) which uses a triac to switch AC loads at high current. There are plenty of simple SSR circuits available, but this may be the simplest circuit that achieves turn-on and turn-off only when the AC line voltage is near zero. Figure 1   AC SSR schematic with zero-cross switching (use browser zoom or open in another tab to enlarge) Transistor Q2 acts as a clamp to di ...
