PSU Burner – a power supply tester

Intro What does one do when designing a power supply? Well, build a power supply tester, of course. One of the simplest things to build is a constant current load. This will allow for testing of the endurance of the power supply, as most of the designs out there are using slow components. However, I wanted to make a better one: one that I could hook up to my Analog Discovery and generate a test waveform to ...

ARDUINO BOT ROCKS A PS2 CONTROLLER

As far as controlling robots goes, makers today are spoilt for choice. WiFi and Bluetooth enabled microcontrollers are a dime a dozen, and integration with smartphone apps is a cinch. Despite this, the old methods still hold sway, as [Igor Fonseca] demonstrates with a simple Arduino bot. It’s a classic build, using a tracked chassis with a pair of motors providing propulsion and skid steering. The moto ...

World’s first fully digital radio transmitter built purely from microprocessor technology

For the first time in history, a prototype radio has been created that is claimed to be completely digital, generating high-frequency radio waves purely through the use of integrated circuits and a set of patented algorithms without using conventional analog radio circuits in any way whatsoever. This breakthrough technology promises to vastly improve the wireless communications capabilities of everything fr ...

Mini Digital Barometric Altimeter

I found on Ebay very nice, small 12v 23A battery holders for PCB mounting style and decided to fit the SMALL DIGITAL BAROMETRIC ALTIMETER just on the back of the holder. So basically this is the same schematic as the SMALL DIGITAL BAROMETRIC ALTIMETER, however I moved some of the connections to different MCU pins because of PCB space limitations. In spite of the small size the functional remains the same. – ...

WALL-MOUNTED GROUND STATION TAMES UNRULY SATNOGS NODE

For many of us, ad hoc projects end up having a certain permanence to them. Think of the number of Raspberry Pis and RTL-SDRs that are just dangling from a USB cable under a desk or stuffed behind a monitor, quietly going about their business. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Some projects, though, just end up accreting past the acceptable point. This wall-mounted SatNOGS ground station is a great ...

Arduino wearable heart rate monitor

If you would prefer to build your very own DIY heart rate monitor, rather than purchase an expensive smartwatch or fitness tracker. You may be interested in a project published to the Hackster.io website earlier this year providing instructions on how to create a simple wearable heart rate monitor using an Arduino Nano R3. The tiny Arduino development board has been combined with a generic nRF24 Module toge ...

SMART BUOY RIDES THE CITIZEN SCIENCE WAVE

Those beautiful and dangerous ocean waves that beckon us to the coast are more than just a pretty sight. They can tell us a lot about weather patterns and what the sea itself is doing. As vital as this information is, the existing methods of doing wave research are pretty expensive. The team at [t3chflicks] wanted to show it can be done fairly cheaply, to encourage more citizen scientists to contribute. Mor ...
