Circuit controls intensity of reflex optical sights: 02/21/2002  EDN - Design Ideas / A popular category of aiming/pointing aids is the reflex, or "red-dot," sight. This system finds use in such diverse applications as astronomy, archery, and shooting. In the reflex sight, light from an internal source-typically a high-intensity red LED-reflects from a curved, transparent optical (reflex) element through which you view the target.

Design a visible optical link for RS 232C communications: 01/09/03  EDN-Design Ideas /  The design in Figure 1 is a visible optical link for those who need to see the transmitted data. An isolation figure of more than 5000V is a bonus. Tests of the system used the COM input of a data-acquisition system, as well as a standard PC's COM port.
