A 150 MHz RF Signal Generator for Your Test Benchby Robert Reed No test bench is complete until it has an RF signal source of some type. Here is a sweet generalpurpose RF signal generator that won’t take up much space and can be built on the cheap.
A Parametric Amplifierby Richard Panosh Get into the swing of mechanical resonate oscillators by constructing this simple pendulum.
BASIC Stamp Module Testerby Chris Savage This easy-to-build-and-use tester will help you quickly troubleshoot problems like bad I/O pins, issues with RAM, and other headaches you might be having with the Stamps you’re using in projects.
PICAXE Primer by Ron Hackett Construct a Battery-Backed UPS for Your Pi Protect your Pi during power outages for a fraction of the cost of commercial uninterruptable power supply units.
Open Communication by Louis E. Frenzel The Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine Communications Emerge as Internet Drivers Both of these communications technologies that are used to monitor and/or control equipment by way of the Internet are expected to enable billions of new devices in the coming years.
Smiley’s Workshop by Joe Pardue The Arduino Classroom. Arduino 101/Chapter 6: Analog Input This time, learn about inputting analog signals using the analog-to-digital converter built into the Arduino, plus some basic electrical concepts to help understand what it is that’s being input.
The Design Cycle by Fred Eady The Dawn of a New EVE This is the first in a series of tutorials aimed at enabling FTDI's new Embedded Video Engine technology using a PIC microcontroller. Along the way, we will use Microchip's XC32 C compiler to code the various elements of our EVE firmware driver. Plus, with the help of a PICkit3, we will exercise this driver onboard a Digilent MX3 which is based on the PIC32MX320F128H.
