BUK9J0R9-40H – A Super Junction MOSFET with Low On-State Resistance

A MOSFET known as a metal-oxide-semiconductor-field-effect transistor is a special type of field-effect transistor which has an insulated gate where in this case the voltage determines the conductivity of the device. Just like conventional transistors, they are also used for switching and amplifying signals. MOSFETs are now more commonly used in digital and analog circuits than BJTs (bipolar junction transi ...

A FRENCH CLEAT TWIST ON ELECTRONICS BENCH ORGANIZATION

For some of us, our workbench is where organization goes to die. Getting ready to tackle a new project means sweeping away a pile of old projects, exposing exactly as much bench space needed to plop down the new parts. On the other end of the spectrum lie those for whom organization isn’t a means to an end, but an end itself. Their benches are spotless, ready to take on a new project at a moment’s notice. [ ...

FORCE FEEDBACK MOUSE REALLY SHAKES THINGS UP

This is a very exciting time for those who like to spend their downtime exploring virtual worlds. The graphics in some big-budget titles are easily approaching photorealism, and immersive multi-channel sound can really make you believe you’ve been transported to another place or time. With another generation or two of GPU development and VR hardware, the line between gaming and reality is bound to get awful ...

Learn how you can build versatile apps for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant with this training

Not too many years ago, talking to the air and expecting a response was either the sign of a hardcore Trekkie or someone with an over-developed or diluted imagination. Now, of course, voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are not only commonplace, they’re actually now in use by more than half of the world’s smartphone users. And Alexa and Google can do far more than cue up your favorite so ...

EMB-2610 Pico-ITX SBC Runs Linux and comes with Touch Panel

Ohio based company, Estone Technology (AKA Habey) has updated the product page for the new EMB-2610 Pico-ITX SBC. The EMB-2610 follows earlier Habey Pico-ITX SBCs such as last year’s i.MX6 UL powered EMB-2200 and i.MX6 based EMB-2230. This time Estone has used a 14nm Intel Atom SoC. Rather than going with Apollo Lake, they used the quad-core, 1.92GHz Atom x5-Z8350 from the Cherry Tr ...

CIRCUITPYTHON MACRO PAD IS ONE BUILD THAT WON’T BITE

Have you built a macro keypad yet? This is one of those projects where the need can materialize after the build is complete, because these things are made of wishes and upsides. A totally customized, fun build that streamlines processes for both work and play? Yes please. The only downside is that you actually have to like, know how to build them. Suffer no more, because [Andy Warburton] can show you e ...

FTDI USB-to-serial converters to drive SPI devices

The FT232 USB-to-serial converter is one of the most commonly-used methods of adding USB functionality to small projects, but recently I found that these chips are capable of sending more than just serial signals. With some creative programming, individual output pins can be big-banged to emulate a clock, data, and chip select line to control SPI devices. This post shares some of the techniques I use to bit ...
