I want to understand the way this circuit works. The following are diagrams of the transmitter and receiver of a wireless iPod charging circuit. I have added a link to the instructable that describes this project. From what I have understood, the transmitter takes the DC input voltage,and turns it into an oscillating signal that can be transferred to the receiver circuit through the inductor. The recieving circuit then rectifies, filters and regulates this signal to give DC output?
Is that how this is working?
Also, are the resistors in the receiver circuit put there for the female USB? Why? Also when I bought the diodes for the transmitter circuit, I could only get 1 UF4007 and the other is a 1N4001. Will that affect the functioning of the circuit?
This is the transmitter circuit.
This is the receiver circuit.
