Cheap kitchen carts

I used my late mom's kitchen cart--an oldie-old-cart made with white metal tubing--as a scope cart.  I still use it, though I needed to put new casters on it.  It is not light, with an HP1722 scope, '5126 counter and an also oldie-old HP3440 DMM on it.  If I only had a Rigol, I could use a CRT swing arm for sure.

@Charles Interesting idea. I'll think about it.

I am sure there are tons of people out there who have created their own instrument cart for their engineering lab at home.  I think you should go further Martin Rowe and have a video contest where the user demonstrate how they use the instrument cart (required guidelines, no vendors); the top few winners will obtain a T-shirt or a pen from eeTimes (something simple).  The readers will be the voters.  Something to think about for the future.

I didn't mean to imply that Agilent scopes weren't good.

I guess you have a good scope. It looks like an HP, before Agilent.

Sure has been and still is a good scope. It is an HP54645D (2Analog @ 100MHz and 16 digital)

If anyone else would like a PDF of the 1998 article on organizing your test bench, I will upload it to the server and provide a link.

Yes, I was editor at T&MW "back then."  I wish my memory was good enough to remember all (most?) of the articles we ran. Thankfully, Martin salvaged the T&MW issues and has a complete archive. And probably a better memory...

Antedeluvian,

OMG, there you are on page 18! Yes, I have a copy of every T&M World from August 1992 to the end last year. I knew you in 1998? How we forget.

Would you like a PDF of the full article?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
