The Making of a Cooled CMOS Camera

Now this post will be for some serious stuff involving video compression. Early this year I decided to make a lossless compression IP core for my camera in case one day I make it for video. And because it’s for video, the compression has to be stream operable and real time. That means, you cannot save it to DDR ram and do random lookup during compression. JPEG needs to at least buffer 8 rows as it does comp ...

DC Power Meter for 0-55V 20A Work Bench Power Supply

This project describes how to make a low-cost DC power meter that can be used for displaying Voltage, current, power and the running time of operation. This is useful and can be used as the display for your bench power supply too. This can be used in the display section of a 0-55 v battery charger, so the time elapsed gives you the actual time of charging the battery. The measurable voltage range of this ci ...

Conductivity Shield for Arduino Uno

Conductivity is the ability of a material to transfer electrons. It is the opposite of the concept of resistivity which is well known to electricians. However, while we are used to address the topic of conductivity in the field of electronics, things get a little bit more complicated when we try to apply the concepts to chemical solutions such as salty water. If I am addressing the topic here it is because ...

Teardown of an Array 3711A 300W DC Electronic Load

I have made many electronic loads in the past. For instance this simple harddrive cooler housed small dummy load, this more sophisticated constant current/constant programmable load and this heavy-duty electronic load that is capable of sinking over 1kW under peak load. In this blog post though, I am going to take a look inside an Array 3711A DC electronic load I recently purchased on eBay. You can find a v ...
