Fairchild's Time constants
« on: January 10, 2009, 05:25:28 AM »
On the PM670 pimp thread I've seen this :

1°)  Who can clealy explain to me how a simple RC (position 1 & 2) can have the same attack times with the same cap and different resistor values (  :o :o position 1: 220k//68k ; position 2: 220k//470K  :o :o ) ?
2°)  Who can clealy explain to me how a simple RC (position 1 & 2) can have different attack and release times ?
  ??? I'm really confused with this... ???

..attack time is determined by sc-transformer output drive impedance - so attack time depends on how much capacitance there is to drive, which is different for different release settings.

PRR he's the man........Intersting too clever for me but I bet PRR does know id be interested to read....thanks
 (Edit)While I was typing Jakob has sussed this one out ......cool thanks

Thanks Jakob .  ;)
Just to check if I understood well :
Attack time is given by the transformer current out charging the cap.
Release is given by the discharge of the cap through its parallel resistor.
Am I right ?

Un-related message attempt:
Gary, I have been trying to PM you with my email, but you inbox is still full!

Any chance of posting or hosting the whole schematic? This one looks much better than the one I the factory manual that I have....

Lolo - spot on.
