The Elenco Model LP-535K Logic Probe Kit is a convenient and precise instrument for use in the measurement of logic circuits. It displays logic levels (high or low), sounds high level, and voltage transients down to 10 nanoseconds. To detect the high and low logic levels, the LP-535 uses two inverters, U1A and U1B (see the Schematic Diagram below). One inverter drives the LO (green) LED and the other, the HI (red) LED.
The red LED lights when the input voltage is more than 50% of the supply voltage. The function of the switch for TTL or CMOS levels input signal makes up the special circuit on the base of transistors from U2 and additional components. The outputs of U1A and U1B are connected to differential circuits C3/R3 and C4/R7. These differential circuits select signals, when the test signals are the pulses. After the differential circuits, the short pulses go through inverters U1C and U1D to the yellow LED. This LED blinks when the detecting diode D4 opens. At this time, capacitor C6 discharges. The lit time of the yellow LED depends upon the value of C6. The LP-535 is equipped with a sound circuit. When the input signal is HI, the oscillator (U1E, U1F) is started and the frequency through switch S1 passes to the speaker.
