Electret JFETs in SC106 or 3-VTFP?


May 6, 2016, 6:43 pm

Folks, ON Semi has just end-of-life'd their whole slew of electret microphone JFETs, TF202, TF252 and TF262. Other types from Panasonic for pyro sensors have more than 10x the bias current, can'... Read more »

Hot plugging serial EEPROM


May 6, 2016, 2:43 pm

I have an application where a large connector, likely a d-sub, will need to contain a serial NVRAM device to hold information about what is attached t o the connector. Very little storage will be... Read more »

Injecting a bit of chaos into your day -- Chua's circuit


May 6, 2016, 1:50 pm

Diddling with things for possible future videos. I think I can make an example of a Chua's circuit using a motor with attached pendulum for the tank -- hence the oddball component values. Shove... Read more »

How many greenies does it take to change a working light bulb? Answer. Seventeen: One to claim the light is out, when it really isn't. One to observe the light is still working but is afraid to te... Read more »

150W current source, with a current-mode switcher


May 5, 2016, 2:12 pm

Here's something for y'all to knaw on, a 150W current-source SMPS, made with a current-mode controller. It has external monitoring and programming with 0-to-5V signals. Most power supplies have l... Read more »

Design of a power supply for a non certified KNX bus


May 5, 2016, 10:40 am

I like the idea of KNX TP1 bus: a two-wires half-duplex bidirectional multi-master bus at 9600bps. The most important thing is data *and power* are on the same couple of wires. There are many KN... Read more »

Video: What is a PID Controller?

STmicro acceleration/magnetic sensor LSM303DLH == LIS331DLH + HMC5834?


Just had a look at the LSM303DLH datasheet and had a déjà vu ;-) It looks like ST has simply put a LIS331DLH and a HMC5843 into one package. (The HMC lacks the built-in voltage regulator) All data ... Read more »
