Many readers are certainly familiar with the process for home-etching of PCBs: it’s considered very straightforward, if a little involved, today. This was not the case in my youth, when I first acquired an interest in electronics.
I love the moon. Like most folks, I take it for granted most of the time, but occasionally I am reminded that it is a giant freaking rock that is orbiting us about 240,000 miles away. I’m not sure why, but I find it fascinating.
Figuring out the maximum number of peripherals which can be sensed or controlled with a minimum number of IOs is a classic optimization trap with a lot of viable solutions. The easiest might be something like an i2c IO expander, which would give you N outputs for 4 wires (SDA, SCL, Power, Ground).
In a previous article, we introduced the DNL and INL specifications. Moreover, we examined the relation between these two linearity metrics. This article will try to develop an intuitive understanding of some properties of the DNL and INL specs.
Resistor assortments are often packed as strips of “tape mounted” resistors. The resistors can be easily organized by stapling the “taped resistor strips” to index cards. Resistor index cards can be sorted and stored in standard index file boxes.

Microsoft has released the code for the Calculator app. This move is the latest in Microsoft’s efforts to capitalize on the Open Source community.
Continuing from where I left off in Driving a Laptop LCD using an FPGA, I moved the ‘TMDS to LVDS converter board’ to perf board, and soldered the differential pairs from the LCD panel onto it. This setup was more stable, since there weren’t any loose wires like when I used the breadboard.
In Path to Programmable Blog 7 – Trying out a PL-only VGA design & Path to Programmable Blog 10 – MiniZed does DVI/HDMI, I used the MiniZed that was sent to the Path to Programmable challengers to generate VGA & DVI/HDMI video.
