Parts organizer & MCU kit

Over the years I always felt some frustration find the required parts from a bin. Well organized parts bin is essential. MCU kit will be required for most projects, so get hold of your favourite one. ARM cortex-3 would be useful and cheap, STM discovery @ 10 bucks was good one. It will require some external interfacing to really use it. I built a board to have PWm's, sensors, drivers, QVGA, 2line LCD, USARTS etc etc. It allows quick and ever ready development for most prototypes.

You too ;)  Thanks for taking it well.  I hope that the new post on PCB tools helps you out.  It should at least give you an overview of some of the nice integrated packages that are out there.

@Aeroengineer

All is fine with the world.

I have been called a whole lot worse by many so "Paul" is cool.

 

God bless,

Fred Dunn

Fred, also, I am not sure why I called you Paul.  I must have been a little tired when I was posting.  That is what I get for having been up for 22 hours.  Sorry once again.

Thanks for the well wishes.  The trip went very well.  I just wanted to give you an update that the list of PCB tools that I mentioned has been posted here in this blog post.  Come take a read and let me know if I missed something that you were looking for.

Paul-I am glad that you found it useful. I do have a program as you indicated. I will be submitting a piece for the new PCB Design line here once I get back from my trip. In fact I am at the airport right now.

I just wanted to thank you for a good , no-nonsense home workshop article.

I am assuming since you have a PC for the bench that you have a schematic capture and PCB layout program so you can send out anything beyond a single layer board.

God bless,

Fred Dunn

Fred, Thanks for joining the discussion. What you said is true, though there are some very useful multi channel logic analyzers that cost under 100 dollars that are very useful.

Always a good Scope before Logic Analyzer...

A good Digital scope will allow you to "see" digital streams, A/D steps and resolution. Also there is really no differentiation between digital and anlog signals since ALL digital signals have finite rise and fall times, ringing, etc. so when you get down to it all signals are analog.

Now there are special multi channel logic analyzers with built in I2C, SPI, CAN, and other serial protocol analyzers, but these come at a high cost if you REALLY want to see the analog component of the signals.

 

God bless,

Fred Dunn

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
