Data-rich 3.5mm jack vies with USB-C for headsets

The 3.5mm phone jack is a well-established standard in the audio industry and continues to get strong support from users in the market. Originally invented in the 19th century for telephone switch boards, it made its way into mobile phones, tablets, and personal computers to connect audio and communication headsets for phone calls or simply for listening to music. While the phone jack has a rather long evol ...

Analogue Input on Raspberry Pi

While you can connect your analogue input/output devices to Arduino very easily, it is not so easy with Raspberry Pi (Raspi). There are no analogue GPIO pins on Raspi; all GPIOs of Raspi are digital. Circuit diagram of an analogue sensor on Raspi However, simple resistive-type analogue-input devices can very easily be connected to Raspi by adding a small resistor-capacitor resonating circuit built around a ...

Limiting Inrush Current

Inrush current or input surge current refers to the maximum, instantaneous input current drawn by an electrical device during its initial turn on. Power converters also feature high inrush currents relative to their steady state currents that may be several times their normal full-load current when first energized. The inrush current of a power converter is typically the charging current of the input capaci ...

Sub-picoamp input op-amp offers high gain bandwidth

Linear Tech is aiming at high-impedance sensor transimpedance amplifiers with an op-amp that requires only 3fA of bias current (typical at 25°C) while offering 500MHz gain bandwidth product. Potential applications for the chip, called LTC6268, include interfacing ADCs to reverse leakage (linear) mode photodiodes. 20kΩ transimpedance gain is available at 65MHz, and 499kΩ with 11MHz bandwidth. FET input trans ...

Switch Statement used with serial input using Arduino

An if statement allows you to choose between two discrete options, TRUE or FALSE. When there are more than two options, you can use multiple if statements, or you can use the switch statement. Switch allows you to choose between several discrete options. This tutorial shows you how to use switch to turn on one of several different LEDs based on a byte of data received serially. The sketch listens for serial ...

Arduino Switch Statement used with sensor input

An if statement allows you to choose between two discrete options, TRUE or FALSE. When there are more than two options, you can use multiple if statements, or you can use the switch statement. Switch allows you to choose between several discrete options. This tutorial shows you how to use it to switch between four desired states of a photo resistor: really dark, dim, medium, and bright. This program first r ...

Calibrating sensor input using Arduino

This example demonstrates one techinque for calibrating sensor input. The Arduino takes sensor readings for five seconds during the startup, and tracks the highest and lowest values it gets. These sensor readings during the first five seconds of the sketch execution define the minimum and maximum of expected values for the readings taken during the loop. Circuit Analog sensor (e.g. potentiometer, light sens ...

Analog Input using Arduino

A potentiometer is a simple knob that provides a variable resistance, which you can read into the Arduino board as an analog value. In this example, you'll connect a poterntiometer to one of the Arduino's analog inputs to control the rate at which the built-in LED on pin 13 blinks. Circuit image developed using Fritzing. For more circuit examples, see the Fritzing project page Connect three wires to the Ard ...

Input Pullup Serial using Arduino

This example demonstrates the use of INPUT_PULLUP with pinMode(). It monitors the state of a switch by establishingserial communication between your Arduino and your computer over USB. Additionally, when the input is HIGH, the onboard LED attached to pin 13 will turn on; when LOW, the LED will turn off. Circuit image developed using Fritzing. For more circuit examples, see the Fritzing project page Connect ...
