AppNote: Inverting DC/DC controller converts a positive input to a negative output with a single inductor

There are several ways to produce a negative voltage from a positive voltage source, including using a transformer or two inductors and/or multiple switches. However, none are as easy as using the LTC3863, which is elegant in its simplicity, has superior efficiency at light loads and reduces parts count compared to alternative solutions. Advanced Controller Capabilities The LTC3863 can produce a –0.4V to –1 ...

Terahertz Electronics – Way To Bridge The largely-untapped Region Between 100GHz and 10THz

The terahertz (THz) region, which is based on 1THz frequency, separates electronics from photonics and has been difficult to access for ages. Semiconductor electronics cannot handle frequencies equal to or greater than 100GHz due to various transport-time related limitations. In other hand, photonics devices fail to work below 10THz as photon’s energy significantly drops to thermal energy. Terahertz Electro ...

ONO, $99 Smartphone-Powered 3D Printer

Born in 2014 from the simple idea of making 3D printing accessible for everyone, Filippo Moroni and Pietro Gabriele worked on new technology to develop a high quality 3D printer that was affordable and easy to use. Their goal was to make the most diffused printer in the world and to develop a worldwide community around it. After 2 years of hard work, ONO has developed and grown into the first 3D printer of ...

FORCE SENSITIVE RESISTOR TAKES THE PAIN OUT OF BED LEVELING

How do you know if your 3D printer bed is levelled? Oh, don’t worry – you’ll know. Without a level bed, filament won’t stick properly to the build surface and you’ll run into all sorts of other problems. Knowing how tricky it can be to get the bed just right, [Antzy] built a tool to help. The device, which he calls the FS-Touch, is based around an Arduino Pro Micro fitted with a force sensitive resistor. Th ...

STEAMPUNK RADIO LOOKS THE BUSINESS

Radios are, by and large, not powered by steam. One could make the argument that much of our municipal electricity supply does come via steam turbines, but that might be drawing a long bow. Regardless, steampunk remains a popular and attractive aesthetic, and it’s the one that [Christine] selected for her radio build. The build cribs from [Christine’s] earlier work on a VFD alarm clock, using similar tubes ...

VOICE CHESS USES PHONE, ARDUINO, AND AN ELECTROMAGNET

[Diyguypt] may be an altruist to provide the means for people who can’t manipulate chess pieces to play the game. Or he may just have his hands too busy with food and drink to play. Either way, his voice command chessboard appears to work, although it has a lot of moving parts both figuratively and literally. You can check out the video below to see how it works. The speech part is handled by an Android pho ...

Windows 10 IoT Core and TSL2561

Story Update 08-15-2015: Project converted to Visual Studio 2015 RTM  Luminosity Sensor Sample using Windows IoT Core As you all know Microsoft released Insider Preview of Windows 10 IoT Core recently. I too download and installed it on my RPi2. While playing with Windows 10 IoT Core, I decided to work on TSL2561 Luminosity Sensor using I2C. Here is the sample I created this weekend. In this project I am us ...
