Re: Question regarding PCB board in close proximity with Primary Coil (DRSSTC)

Original poster: "Daniel McCauley" <dhmccauley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I just did some initial calculations, and i think i should be able to adequately illuminate a single LED from a 1-2 turn coil on a PCB board.

Primary Coil (12uH)
LED Coil (0.3uH) 1-2 turns, 2 inch diameter on copper board
Coupling (calculated with MANDK) k = 0.02 (LED Coil about 2.5 inches below bottom turn of primary) Avg Current for 300us pulse, 100Hz PRF is about 20mA. A bit high, but for a ballpark, not too bad.

Time to prototype!!!
