How to build a simple Arduino shutter speed tester – by Ethan Moses

I’ve been stuck in my house filling orders for my Kickstarter campaign for the CAMERADACTYL 4×5 Field Camera, mostly just babysitting printers, changing filaments and adjusting extruders every few hours. This has left me with some rare time for tinkering. Recently I built a cheap, quick and dirty tool to calibrate a project that I was …

Simple circuit lets you characterize JFETs

When working with discrete JFETs, designers may need to accommodate a large variation in device parameters for a given transistor type. A square-law equation is usually used as an approximate model for the drain-current characteristic of the JFET: ID=β(VGS−VP)2, where ID is the drain current, VGS is the gate-to-source voltage, β is the transconductance parameter, …

Simplify DC-DC Converter Characterization

DC-DC converters are widely used components that convert DC power from one voltage to another, producing a regulated output voltage. These devices are used in many electronic products, including laptops, mobile phones, and instrumentation. Like any device, DC-DC converters need to be characterized by manufacturers and by engineers evaluating them for a design. Given the …

SIMPL Revisited – Again, but this time it’s personal

In May 2013, I learned about Ward Cunningham’s Txtzyme language – a very simple serial command interpreter which allowed basic control of microcontroller function using a serial interface. I wrote about it here: Txtzyme – A minimal interpretive language and thoughts on simple extensions Tytzyme was about as easy as a “language” could get, it …

How To Make a Simple Variable Frequency Generator Using Arduino

A frequency generator is a very handy device in electronic design, development, testing and trouble shooting. It is such a kind of device which can generate the required frequencies which can be then applied directly to the target device for testing it. There are frequency generators which can generate the required waveform like sine wave, …

A Simple Bat Detector based shield for the Arduino Uno

I’ve built a number of projects that have interfaced the output of the Simple Bat Detector with a microprocessor. The most recent was the BatLogger II. But I hadn’t come up with an easy way for others to experiment with this idea … until now. My friend, Frank, in Germany, had wanted to make a …
