AOI’s post-COVID rebound continues

Semiconductor today - Птн, 11/27/2020 - 11:23
For third-quarter 2020, Applied Optoelectronics Inc (AOI) of Sugar Land, TX, USA – a designer and manufacturer of optical components, modules and equipment for fiber access networks in the Internet data-center, cable TV broadband, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and telecom markets – has reported revenue of $76.6m, up 17.5% on $65.2m last quarter and 66% on $46.1m a year ago...

I made a 400hz driver to reduce the flicker of my LED xmass lights.

Reddit:Electronics - Птн, 11/27/2020 - 01:16

It converts 60hz into 400hz "modified sine wave" at 115V. I was originally going to us PWM to make it "pure sine wave" but the IR2104 doesn't have the performance to drive the mosfets fast enough when running at high voltages. Oh well, maybe next time I can improve it and design it around a different drive. I already have some ideas for next time. Anyways, it's a noticeable difference in the amount of flicker reduction on LED lights and it's fun to make alarm clocks run extra fast!

Color television, 1950s style

Huge color wheel in front of a small CRT

YT Video

Project schematic page

Ever wondered how they could get color television way back in the day when color CRTs were just prototypes or incredibly expensive/unrealiable? This is how, using a monochrome CRT with the addition of RGB color filters on a wheel spinning as fast as the image. Sadly modern cameras have a hard time capturing such footage right, resulting in a awful flashing of the footage, so epileptics beware.

Back in the day, they used a device called Col-R-Tel, vacuum tube addon (external box) which in combination with the color wheel enabled most of the available TVs to display color image.

You can find fine information about this topic on this website:

Hawes TV

I also colorized the world's smallest video CRT using the same technique, video here:
