I have the following relay driver:
Here is the datasheet:
I am going to connect this to mbed to control pinball lamps using the SPI interface.
But before I attempt this I want to power the mbed through the relay driver's 5V OUT pin.
I've connected the relay driver to +10V and GND,
and mbed to the relay V OUT pin and GND.
But no luck.
Am I missing something?
You don't mention connecting Brown Out (BO pin 20). It needs to be above 1.2V (1.3 typical on page 6) for the outputs to work. The block diagram does not show a connection from BO to the LDO output, however, it does show a 1.2V reference to the comparator which is later contradicted in the electrical characteristics.
Which pin have you connected the 5V out to,
It should be pin 2, not pin 39.
Also have you checked you actually have 5Volts, Out from relay chip.
I have tried connected brown out to 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 V etc...
Also directly to 14V supply
I cannot get 5VDC on my multimeter, it reads 1.2V
Damn it all.
Did your code work ?

mbed, the fastest way to prototype with ARM based microcontrollers.
