Who saw it coming?, Fontus have filed for bankruptcy!
The infamous “self-filling water bottle” that raised $340k on Indiegogo has gone bankrupt and delivered nothing.
You ‘canna beat the laws of physics Captain!
Gav “The Mechatronics Guy” explains circular polarised light and demonstrates his physical laser cut models to help understand this concept in his quest to make a pixel mapped polarised light camera.
How do 3D shutter glasses work?
Bart Schroder from Cleverscope talks about the challenges in designing the world’s highest performance isolated oscilloscope.
Measurement demo on a 500V MOSFET H-Bridge and how to accurately probe it. Then a teardown and walk through of the design of the new CS448 1kV 4CH 200MHz 14bit isolated oscilloscope and the custom probes, power supplies and optical fibre interfaces they had to design to get this performance.
Why do many powered studio monitor speakers have a low level audible background noise?
This is an issue with many big and popular brand monitors like KRK, Yamaha, JBL, Alesis and many others
Time for some investigation on the KRK Rokit 6 studio monitor speakers to track down where the noise is coming from.
NOTE: Not all monitors have this issue, many much higher end ones may not. It pays to check this first if you are going to spend decent money on studio monitors, as you may find it annoying.
Are power planes in a 4 layer PCB any good as a capacitor?
Can it work as one big bypass capacitor?
A look at an discussion on PCB layer stackups, and some measurements on 4 and 8 layer PCB power planes with different prepreg thicknesses and how well they work as a capacitor.
Circuit building block time. The capacitance multiplier and how it gives almost negligible power supply ripple compared to a voltage regulator.
Whiteboard theory and then some bench demonstrations and experiments. Plus a twist at the end that proves that the “Capacitance multiplier” is perhaps one of the most mis-named circuits of all time.
Review of the new 18W USB-C TS80 temperature controlled portable soldering iron.
TLDR; Highly recommended, money well spent if you need a portable iron solution, but you need a QC3 battery pack.
Is a $5 8W USB soldering iron actually useful?
The Australian Computer Museum Societies’ warehouse has to shut down next week, so Dave goes warehouse diving.
If you know of someone willing to donate warehouse space in Sydney, please let me know.
UPDATE: Please don’t contact them with offers of small donations space, they need a HUGE space, as in hundreds of square meters. Thanks.
