A tale of 2 grounds
How are the grounds tied together on the pcb? Can you post a pic of the grounding on the circuit? Do you have any large capacitors on the circuit close to the heater? There is a...

HOT!! resistors
I don't really follow your math. Its not that hard to figure out. Supply Voltage: 13.3V LED Voltage: 3.4v DC typical, 4.0v DC max For typical leds- 3 in series: LED voltage = 3 x...

Simple question
This should help. CTR is simply a way to express the current transfer from the diode side to the transistor side. Using the...

Power and data on the same line - easy?
You could just have a current loop and simply have the devices short the loop with a transistor to communicate. Just need to make sure that the data is not hanging around long...

Start-up advice
LCR Meter is a must imho. As is a decent lab psu with programmable voltage and current settings. oddbudman

LEDS arrangement
What type of leds/ what current? What is the circuit operating Voltage? What transistor do you plan on using? oddbudman

power supply without transformer, how I can do it?
This is really a project where if you don't know how to do it- you probably shouldn't attempt it. Why do you want to make this circuit? oddbudman

Cheap way to sense 24VAC?
i'll put the other triangle next time. lol Just a side note (sorry if a little offtopic) - here is a nice way to isolate an analog input signal.

Cheap way to sense 24VAC?
Isolation is a good thing. Something simple like this will do the job- just use some software to figure out if AC is there or not. (R1 and R2 both 10k will probably work first try...

Not exactly LC filtering, but this is a good read. oddbudman

Problem with a self made circuit board UV exposure unit.
The capacitor will charge following normal capacitor RC timing. In this case the R is the internal pullup resistor plus the series resistor. You can also add a series resistor...
