    If anyone is interested, I can give a short talk on using transistors as switches. Need to turn on a relay or fire a solenoid, or light up some high current LEDs with an Arduino? You'll damage it if you try to source or sink more than 40mA per pin. I'll talk about how to properly drive transistors, both bipolar (NPN and PNP) and MOSFET.

      Could my LED be used in place of the Diode? Or does it need to be a specific type of diode?

      We should discuss this on the Forum.

    I had a lot of fun. I love helping people, and learning new things from them.

    Currently, I am interested in the intersection of music, electronics, and microcontrollers. I am working on computer assisted musical instruments, and tune storage and analysis.
