Workshop Update for September 28th, 2012

Posted on Friday, September 28th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we’re touring the electronics side of New York. We visited the Hack Manhattan hackerspace, Radio Shack, MakerBot store, 269 Electronics store, Argo Electronics store, and the Leeds Radio store. Check out our tweeter feed with live picture updates.

We wrote the application note posts that will be posted during the weekend. We also drew up some illustrations for tutorials we’ll be posting next week.

We continue our work on the VFD tube holder board, pictured above. We plan on using them via multiplexing, so most pins are multiplexed together.

  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
