32.768 kHz MEMS resonator is only 0.9×0.6×0.3mm

Measuring just 0.9×0.6×0.3mm (50 % smaller than a conventional 32.768 kHz crystal resonator), the WMRAG series 32.768 kHz MEMS resonator is the world’s smallest, claims manufacturer Murata. Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Nagaokakyo-shi, Kyoto; Chairman of the Board and President: Tsuneo Murata) has developed the world’s smallest 32.768kHz MEMS resonator, which is expected to make a significant ...

TOUCH SCREEN REFLOW OVEN PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS

We’ve seen plenty of simple reflow ovens, and there’s an excellent chance that some of the people reading these words have even thrown their own together. A minimal example isn’t much more than a old toaster oven, a Solid State Relay (SSR), a thermocouple, and a microcontroller to get them all talking. But if you’re like [Mangy_Dog] and willing to put in a bit more effort, the final result can be a capable ...

RUEF300 – A FUSE WHICH NEVER BLOWS

Surface-mount fuses do a good job at protecting components from burning up – sadly, exchanging them is not a simple task manageable by end users. LittelFuse‘s RUEF series provide an attractive alternative, which is not widely known. Parts like the RUEF300 are based on the concept of the PTC. Designers switch them in series with the load, meaning that the parts normally have a pretty low resistance (less tha ...

HUMIDUINO – AN AUTOMATED HUMIDOR USING ARDUINO

Introduction I can agree on that, but a sharp and bitter cigar will probably make it a lot less enjoyable. That's why I wanted to build myself a Humidor. Storing a cigar at the right temperature and humidity is very important. Especially for long filler cigars like Cubans. In the Netherlands it's much more common to smoke short filler cigars. Most of them are produced here in the Netherlands. They don' ...

SINGLE ATOM TRANSISTOR WITH ULTRA-LOW POWER CONSUMPTION

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) researchers in Germany have developed a single-atom transistor that can reduce the power consumption of electronic systems significantly. The device is being developed by Professor Thomas Schimmel and his team at the Institute of Applied Physics (APH). The single-atom transistor switches electrical current by controlled repositioning of a sing ...

ARDUINO REDUCES HEATING COSTS

While almost everyone has a heater of some sort in their home, it’s fairly unlikely that the heat provided by a central heating system such as a furnace is distributed in an efficient way. There’s little reason to heat bedrooms during the day, or a kitchen during the night, but heating systems tend to heat whole living space regardless of the time of day or the amount of use. You can solve this problem, lik ...

ESP32 with multiple DS18B20 temperature sensors

This guide shows how to read temperature from multiple DS18B20 temperature sensors with the ESP32 using Arduino IDE. We’ll show you how to wire the sensors on the same data bus to the ESP32, install the needed libraries, and a sketch example you can use in your own projects. This tutorial is also compatible with the ESP8266 and the Arduino boards. We have a getting started guide for the DS18B20 temperature ...
