  • Breaking the Arduino Speed Limit — Part 2 by Bob Davis
    This continuation of the March 2014 article on just how fast you can push an Arduino offers a solution to previous clock glitches, adds a serial LCD screen that leaves more pins available, and introduces an eight-bit fast ADC. Then, you put everything together to make an even nicer digital storage oscilloscope.
  • Setting Up a Test Bench by Robert Reed
    What equipment do you really need for monitoring and testing all your projects?
  • Understanding Harmonics Using Simulation by Richard Agard
    Harmonics form a base line for testing, comparing, and explaining various circuits. This short tutorial shows how you can systematically look at the structure of complex circuits using a simulation program and building block approach.
  • Meet the ESP8266 by Craig Lindley
    It’s not all that often that a new piece of hardware comes along that immediately captures the attention of the builder community. The ESP8266 is the newest example of this. It’s only about the size of a nickel, yet contains a powerful 32-bit microcontroller and a Wi-Fi interface, plus you can buy it for around $4.
  • Silent Sensors by Joe T. Evans, Jr., Spencer T. Smith
    Ferroelectric capacitors can help take the mystery out of event detection, and save the results to report on them later.
  • Vintage Computing — I Still Adore My 64 by Jim Lawless
    Next in our Vintage Computing series is how to emulate a Commodore 64 home computer on your modern PC.


  • Techknowledgey by Jeff Eckert
    Events, Advances, and News
    This time, read about taking another stab at GW detection, a really big tablet, easy cable tracing, an instrument of torture, plus some other cool stuff.
  • The Spin Zone by Jon McPhalen
    May the G-Force be with You
    Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges. Unless, they’re Parallax’s new hackable Conference types complete with a three-axis accelerometer.
  • Q&A by Tim Brown
    Reader Questions Answered Here
    Topics answered include drone mechanics, PID control, and music editing.
  • Practical 3D Printing by Chuck Hellebuyck

  • Near Space by L. Paul Verhage
    GPSL 2015 and My 150th Near Space Launch
    Highlights from this year’s Great Plains Super Launch conference and commemoration of Paul’s 150th adventure into the great beyond.
  • The Design Cycle by Fred Eady
    From Data Logger to On-Demand Data Storage Device
    Roland Riegel, Bill Greiman, and the folks at SparkFun laid the ground work for the OpenLog. OpenLog was originally designed as an “out of the box” data logger. We’re going to add some PIC32MX electron spice to the OpenLog design and turn it into an “out of the box” general-purpose microSD-based storage device.
