T0m designed a Twin Triac AC switch on DP5050 PCB: Double SSR for TO-220 package triacs and MOC* series optocoupled drivers. The schematic is based on a design by RobG posted to the 43oh forum. Via the forum.
An open source USB stack for PIC microcontrollers has evolved in the forum over the last year. It supports a number of USB-enabled PICs, and a good developer would test each chip before each release. We’ve been crowd sourcing that … Read more
This clear foot operated switch is made with a bent piece of acrylic, and a PCB with a tactile switch and mounting holes: This time,i made a lighter version, very simple to make, still with a nice operating feel. I … Read more
How to get input from multiple tact switches with a single input pin: A technique of interfacing multiple tact switches using a single ADC input pin was demonstrated using the PIC12F683 microcontroller. A digital input from four tact switches were … Read more
Make has an introduction to various switches: Easily overlooked, but elemental to electronics hardware, the manually operated switch is the simplest of electromechanical devices — and likely the most familiar. While the most basic switch is… well, quite basic, there’s … Read more
