Software Sunday – RC time constant / voltage calculator

Pt 101712

Software Sunday – RC time constant / voltage calculator. Intrepid adafruit engineer Kevin Townsend came up with this very handy javascript calculator for figuring out exactly how long it takes for an RC delay to reach a certain voltage. Handy for when you want to make a delay (by charging up a capacitor) or when you want to avoid a delay (by calculating how much delay is caused by your fet/transmission line capacitance) Take it for a spin today!
