The photo transistors used as sensors are very critical. The optical behaviour to be studied carefully in the application under various lighting conditions. One more issue out of many photo transistors one may have poor leakage specification will lead to failure of detection and the system will behave erratically!

@Michael Hughes, well written and nicely explained! Thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, sometimes we tend to ignore or overlook less important (apparently) specs. of the components in order to focus on the major features/ functionalities, which could cause a huge trouble in a crunchy situation

I echo Sanjob Acharya's sentiments. Thank you Michael for sharing your discovery so that we can all think of creative, mathematically-based solutions to make our products better. I also think your mini bio at the end of the article is clever and witty. With nanotechnology advancing forward, low power requirements tightening, the future of electronics will yield phenomenal results...but then what? after everything is THAT microscopic?

Mike, My experience has been that photo diodes or transistors tend to age and systems loose detection sensitivity if not accounted for. Was there any issue with batch to batch or life longevity?

Very nice article . It shows that persistence pays. and even some trivial looking information on a data sheet sometimes plays a very crucial role in your design. Those people who make accurate and comprehensive data sheets need to be rewarded! I have this experience of finding something new every time I read a data sheet of a component and many times that new discovery points to the solution of your problem.

Fantastic piece of writing! I am highly agree with the writer's point of view. Important information corruption scenario is always a problem for the individual. A range of recovery software applications are already designed a by the professionals, which would mean that a user can easily simply recover the missed data. User should be well aware of the accessible personal information recovery resources making sure that they can handle the info loss condition in a optimal way. http://www.bestfilerecoverysoftware.biz/pc-file-recovery-can-be-easily-done
