Common applications of inverting buffers & drivers

Controlling an indicator LED

Most modern systems like PLC’s or network equipment contain some form of LED indicators. These LED’s need to be driven by either an MCU or other circuitry which is often not able to provide the high current drive required. One simple solution is to use a logic buffer or logic gate. This video walks through the design process and the important parameters to consider.

Debounce a Switch
Physical buttons and switches can produce multiple outputs from a single button press due to bouncing of the internal contacts. This video presents a simple solution to eliminate multiple triggers from this effect.
