Linear Bench Power Supply

DETAILED DESCRIPTION This project is a simple linear bench power supply with adjustable voltage and current. It is meant to be a learning experience, putting ideas of circuit design, feedback, stability into practice building a complete practical power supply. I have intentionally avoided using a 3 terminal regulator or purpose built chip and instead implemented the feedback for voltage and current using a ...

Happy Gecko ARM M0-based USB MCUs from Si Labs

Silicon Labs is producing ARM M0-based USB-enabled MCUs called Happy Gecko which aim to lower USB power drain and simplify USB connectivity. Adding USB interfaces to portable, battery-powered connected devices can double the application current consumption, says Silicon Labs. Happy Gecko USB MCUs have five energy modes enabling applications to remain in an energy-optimal state by spending as little time as ...

How-to use PWM to Generate Analog (or Analogue) Voltage in Digital Circuits

Many times, designers are faced with the need of generating analogue or analog voltage levels in purely digital circuits. Although the market provides today a very broad range of dedicated digital-to-analogue converters, putting such a device in the schematic has a negative impact on the overall cost of the system. 1. Introduction In the first part of this article (Generating Analog Voltage with Digital Cir ...

Panelizing and Gerber Generation in Eagle

I have been working with Eagle for quite some time but never really got a PCB manufactured. almost all the time i used the toner transfer method to make homebrew PCBs. But then i took a project in which i had to use SMD components and i could no longer use toner transfer method because of the limits on resolution of the Laser printer. Time had come for “properly” designing and generating “Gerber files”. Whe ...
