Linear Lab Power Supply with digital meter

From my point of view one of the best ways to get started in electronics is to build your own laboratory power supply. In this instructable I have tried to collect all the necessary steps so that anyone can construct his or her own. All the parts of the assembly are directly orderable in digikey, ebay, amazon or aliexpress except the meter circuit. I made a custom meter circuit shield for Arduino able to me ...

Latching Relay Module

In electronics, a device is said to be a latching device if it maintains any particular fixed state even after removal of the input signal. The same also applies for electronic/electromechanical relays. Basically the electromechanical relays that are used today are of two types: 1. Non-Latching Relay : These relays are most widely used where energy consumption is basically not an issue.This type relay(s) co ...

From Trash to Treasure: How to Resurrect a Minitel Terminal

One of us (Mailland) grew up in Paris in the 1980s, surrounded by advertisements for racy “pink” chat rooms, accessible through terminals connected to France’s Minitel network. They were a lucrative part of the wider Minitel economy, which also let you send messages, check bank balances, and read news. By 2000, as the Internet displaced the Minitel network, the billboards started being replaced by piles of ...

Cheap Arduino Serial Terminal

How about a cheap serial terminal for less than a fiver all-in? In a previous blog entry I’ve been working on more developments for the increasingly powerful home control system using an Arduino as a kind of universal I2c peripheral to the ESP8266. The reason for that is just the vast range of driver software our there and the fact that from China you can get an Arduino-Nano-type-board for under £2. There a ...

How To Select an Inductor

When I was working on the the latest version of the Common Parts Library, I realized that it would be helpful to explain why you might pick one type of inductor over another. We started off this series by writing “How to select a capacitor,” followed by “How to select a resistor,” and are continuing with a close look at inductors. In this blog, we will explain all the different types of inductors, their mer ...

DIY Arduino Relay Driver Shield

In this DIY project we make a 3-Channel Arduino Relay Shield Circuit for relay based applications. We designed an isolated PCB for 3 relays. By using this Arduino Relay Shield, we can operate 3 AC appliances at a time. We have put a two pin screw terminal blocks (Neutral, NO) for connecting appliances. Here we have provided PCB layout, circuit diagram, and Gerber files so that you can build or directly orde ...

Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick Using Arduino

Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick According to the WHO, about 30 million people are estimated to be permanently blind worldwide. These people are totally dependent on others. They even cannot walk on their own. We have created designed and built an “Ultrasonic Blind Walking Stick” device which will help blind people to walk with ease independently. As a simpler version, we have used only one ultrasonic sensor ...

How to Select a Resistor

When I was working on the next version of Common Parts Library, I realized that it would be helpful to explain why you might pick one type of passive component over another. We started off by writing “How to Select a Capacitor” last month, and are following it up with a close look at resistors this month. In this blog, we will explain all the different types of resistors, their merits and demerits, and popu ...
