After 12 years in the making, the “brain computer” designed at the University of Manchester is finally switched on.
This two-article series presents an overview of circuit symbols and also provides some information on the components themselves. In the previous article, we covered the symbols for passive components and diodes, which are semiconductor devices that don’t provide amplification.
We’ve seen a variety of oddball 7-segment displays in the past, but this one uses a new material: both for the display and the mechanical mechanism that drives it; cardboard. Yup, the whole thing is made from cardboard, wood and a few rubber bands.
Learn the electrical symbols of basic electronic components, including passive components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers), diodes, and thyristors. Electrical symbols are a short-hand way of indicating which components are involved in a circuit schematic.
We decided to celebrate a Casablanca themed Halloween this year (just in time for the 75th anniversary). We had all sorts of ideas about table games, chocolate poker chips, etc. We settled on building 3 slot machines that dispense chocolate coins.
So you bought your first Nintendo LABO kit, carefully folded each cardboard key and button into shape, and now you have… a toy piano?
Instant photos are magical. They develop before your eyes. You can share them, gift them, spill water on them, draw on them.
How do you preserve high scores in an old arcade cabinet when disconnecting the power? Is it possible to inject new high scores into a pinball machine? It was the b-plot of an episode of Seinfield, so it has to be worth doing, leading [matthew venn] down the rabbit hole of FPGAs and memory maps t
This article will discuss what rigid-flex PCBs are, the advantages of using them, and the rules for designing with them for an application. In electronics, we sometimes encounter seemingly new technologies that have roots in the past.
