Learn the proper way to design a Pmod!
We sat down with Digilent Design Contest’s youngest entry and got his story about the challenges and benefits of his participation in the contest.
Who doesn’t love interactive LEDs? This project started because I wanted to make a simple circuit that I could later move on to a printed circuit board (PCB) that I designed myself. (The original goal was to learn PCB design and layout.) This idea was given to me by my manager, Larissa, and was inspired by Evil Mad Science’s Octolively. Being an analog enthusiast, I came up with my own design that doesn’t use any ICs.
Right now everyone is talking about 3D printing, but at least one group thinks 2D printing isn’t dead yet. Last month, Ynvisible launched their KickStarter campaign to produce Printoo, a set of thin, flexible Arduino-compatible boards and modules.
Half of the team is headed to Digilent Romania for the 10-year Anniversary Design Contest, while the other half of is gearing up to go to Bay Area Maker Faire!
If you are near either Romania or in the USA, Bay Area, we would love to have you stop by and say hello! Stay tuned on our Twitter and Facebook feeds to see the events as they happen.
The Logic Analyzer instrument in WaveForms can be used to easily decode Manchester encoding signals. The following guide presents what Manchester encoding is, what are its advantages over unencoded digital …
Though oscilloscopes are most known for viewing and diagnosing analog signals, there are some cases where critical characteristics of digital signals can only be viewed on an oscilloscope. When designing …
Today we will go over a brief overview on FPGAs!
When looking at the oscilloscope feature of a multi-instrument device or when comparing two benchtop oscilloscopes, the first specifications that we look at are the bandwidth and sample rate. While these …
