Problem with power supply
Geethesh last edited by salmanfaris
The above image shows the ckt with ultrasonic sensor and attiny 45 Ic ,Bd 140 transistor (for switching the 6v pump).
***The problem is when I give power from 5v regulator to all this as shown in fig, the circuit is not working ,(not enough power ).
What should I do.
Should I give separate power to motor
I am using 5.5v adaptor 500mAh.
*I have checked the circuit by connection separate 5 v from arduino ,to that attiny 45 ic and sensor,. Then it is working .
- Please help

@Geethesh The problem is here. There is huge voltage drop at some point of the circuit(probably at the pump or sensor, you should find it by probing at those particular areas) such that the voltage is getting attenuated by the time it reaches the Attiny. So, Attiny is working only when a dedicated supply is given to it. You can try this out by having multimeter probed between the VCC and GND of the ATTiny45. Try having a stable supply to Attiny

I have made a custom board with Atmega328P SMD IC and now I am having a problem flashing it. I have flashed multiple chips like these earlier, however this time I am having a hard time figuring out the issue.
I am using Arduino UNO as an ISP programmer to burn bootloader but getting responses like Attempt 1 of 10 - stk500() is not responding etc., like that. I need some help regarding this issue.
Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated. Please ask me for any additional information that I might have not mentioned in this post.
Thanks in advance.
I have been facing this problem recently while I run the program the output terminal just shows scanned text and the android virtual device is not opening. I have reinstalled the SDK but the problem still persist.!
Hi, I was looking for a reliable carbon monoxide sensor, I tried the MQ7 sensor, but it has a preheat time of 48 hours and a sensitivity range from 20ppm-2000ppm, and my application requires 1ppm to 1000ppm. let me know if anyone working with a similar sensor or use case!
@milanvarghese No, the battery comes into the play only if there is no power from the solar cell. It's like inverters in our home. They activate only if main power is gone, rest of the time they keep charging. similarly here the direct power will be coming from the solar cell, only if the solar cell can't produce enough voltage battery comes into the loop and starts providing voltage to our circuit.
@kowshik1729 I have seen this, but doesnt it damage that battery? dischargeing and charging at the same time?
