Can we used the 4 pin Tactile-Micro as a on-off switch?
would you like to clarify a bit ... a 4 pin Tactile-Micro what ?
I assume you mean switch ? like one of these ....
I'm not aware of any that stay on ... ie they are all push make - release break
Yes that one in the picture
It's just break the circuit and go off
OK there are ways to use this style of switch to be able to switch a circuit on and off
here's one example .....
this process is common in so much gear these days ... TV's VCR's DVD players etc etc
you will understand that that portion of the circuit will always have power on it
Thank you davenn that's very useful
if you do build this to experiment, you may find it suffers a little from switch bounce
that is a pulse produced when contacts make and another when they break. This will cause
double triggering in the flipflop IC
there is a small mod that can be done to stop that
