PLAY A GAME OF MULTIMETER

There are many different single board computers that are general purpose, but there’s another breed targeted at specific applications. One such is the Clockworkpi, a handheld Game Boy-style games console, which may be aimed at gamers but has just as much ability to do all the usual SBC stuff. It’s something [UncannyFlanigan] has demonstrated, by turning the Clockworkpi into a multimeter. And it’s not just a ...

The USB-C Explorer helps to get started with USB-C

I've been quiet for a while, mostly because I've been working on a new USB-C board. Actually, the board didn't take the most time; that would be the firmware development. (Never underestimate firmware). The result is a cool piece of gear, a powerful development platform, and a stronger firmware library. The USB-C Explorer is a development board with everything needed to start working with USB Type-C. It con ...

DROPCONTROLLER SETS THE BAR FOR DOCUMENTATION

dropController has the kind of documentation we wish would spontaneously generate itself whenever we build something. [Martyn Currey] built a robust rig for water droplet photography, and we don’t want to dismiss the hardware, but the most impressive part might be the website. It might not be very fancy, but it’s thorough and logically organized. You can find parts lists, assembly manuals, tutorials, sketch ...

Diodes Incorporated’s APX803S-31SA-7 helping you with Voltage Trips

Vdd brownouts are among the most common antipodes of microcontroller design – they are especially annoying, as their presence is not easy to detect. Diodes Incorporated provides a new family of easy-to-use supply voltage monitor ICs. From a principal point of view, the parts are not difficult to understand. Simply connect them to VCC and ground, thereby allowing the chip to keep an eye on the supply. After ...

THIS TUBE PREAMP HAS A NIXIE VOLUME DISPLAY

The pursuit of audiophile hi-fi is one upon which many superlatives and perhaps a little too much money are lavished. But it’s also a field in which the self-builder can produce their own equipment that is as good or often better than that which can be bought, so it provides plenty of interesting projects along the way. [Justin Scott]’s tube preamplifier is a great example, with its novel use of a pair of N ...

SAMD21 M0+ mini Arduino compatible board now offers more power

Engineer and developer Alex Tan based in Singapore has launched a new Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the SAMD21 M0+ Arduino-compatible board. Featuring a 32-bit 48MHz ARM Cortex M0+ w/ internal 32K Ram 256K Flash, 8M Ram 128M Flash onboard and more. “I have sourced and used many microcontroller boards for many projects and very often I find boards with insufficient pins, too big, too power hungry, an ...

DIY LED-photometer With Arduino for Physics or Chemistry Lessons

Liquids or other objects appear colored because theyreflect or transmit certain colors and in turn swallow (absorb) others. With a so-called photometer, those colors (wavelengths) can be determined, which are absorbed by liquids. The basic principle is simple: with a LED of a certain color you first shine through a cuvette filled with water or another solvent. A photodiode measures the incoming light intens ...

Tiny Solar Energy Module (TSEM)

Description This is a 1x1 inch PCB module with two tiny solar cells, a highly efficient Li-Ion battery charger and with two regulated outputs (3.3V and 1.8V). It harvests enough power from indoor light to power a simple BLE or LoRa sensor. The board has castellated vias so it can be surface mount soldered onto a mother PCB as well as soldered onto 0.1" headers to be used in a bread board. Based on TSEM I de ...

Measure voltage and current simultaneously with Tiny VA Meter

Makers, developers and hobbyists looking for a way to measure both voltage and current simultaneously may be interested in a new Arduino project published to the official Arduino blog, featuring Karl Kristian Torp’s palm-sized Tiny V/A. The Arduino Nano based project takes input from the power supply via a female barrel jack connector. This supplies the load through a male connector output, and also powers ...
