HI frenz,

Iv completed my final year project. Though i have finished it successfully there are some

questions for which i don have an answer. I need help from people who r willing to

make me understand.

My first question is the transistor shown in below circuit to control relay

is working as an amplifier. am i right?? If so its in common emitter mode. why do they

connect 1k resistor in series with base?? Y only 1k why not other value??

sorry the circuit is this not the one shown above

Transistor is not used as amplifier but as a switch. We operate transistor in saturated (on state) and cut-off (off state) mode only.

And why 10K or 1K it actually depends on type of transistor used and collector current you want. Following are the exact parameters that defines your resistor value:

1. hfe/gain
2. Collector current
3. Drive voltage (voltage at pin)
4. Max drive current controller Pin can provide.

resistance value = V - 0.7 / C / hfe
where V is Supply voltage at pin (~5v)
C is collector current you want
hfe is gain of transistor (see datasheet for this value)

I saw the datasheet of BC547B. I have used that transistor in my ckt... In data sheet its given as dc current gain as 100mA. If i substitute that value then i will get the answer as 43 which means 43 ohms... i guess im wrong in my calculation.

well gain is never in mA as gain is a ratio of current. Pleas make sure you have seen the right value. It should be mentioned with hfe. If you have a multimeter you can place your transistor in DMM and test its hfe.

i am doing a countdown timer with 8051 for my project, unfortunately our professor had to take a leave of absence before he could teach us most of it.. can someone explain the .asm code of it for me?

I am doing a project for my schools wireless security system with cameras,sensors and spot lights using 8051 micro controller, could you help me out with the design and its source code.

hello! newbie here. i am kind of a guy who hates using ready - made existing libraries, so this helped a lot as i was trying to control and write to a character lcd display. however, i can't figure out how to set the cursor position. for example, i want to set it to the 5th column in the first row, so position 5. so according to the table, i am sending 10000101 on the 8 data lines of the lcd (register select pulled low). the cursor does not move there however. and i cant move the cursor left or right too. is it something wrong that i am doing? thank you.
