Some Techniques For Lowering Power Consumption

While very-large-scale integration (VLSI) and complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technologies have had an exponential growth, energy-storage technologies have grown slowly, requiring improvement in electronic circuit designs. Today, such ICs are...

Satellites Deciphered

We are nothing but a speck on the canvas of the universe; but this has not set a limit to our ambitions of exploring it. Space has always managed to fuel...

Simple Prototyping Platform

THE HARDWARE SIMPP or Simple Prototyping Platform is an open source electronic prototyping platform used for building electronic circuits or projects that mainly use microcontroller. SIMPP is physical programmable circuit board hardware...

Designing An Accurate Temperature-Monitoring System

Modern electronic systems use sensors to monitor parameters like temperature and provide protection from excessive temperature excursions with good accuracies, reasonable costs and often with low power consumption. For instance, expensive...

Electromagnetic Compatibility: Grounding (Part 3 of 5)

In the previous parts we covered multi-layer PCB designing. Now, let us look at grounding or earthing. Grounding can be defined as a connection, whether intentional or accidental, between an electrical circuit...

7 Segment Display Pinout | Working Understanding of 7 Segment Display

A seven-segment display is commonly used in electronic display device for decimal numbers from 0 to 9 and in some cases, basic characters. Use of light emitting diodes (LEDs) in seven...

Human Detector

Surveillance is an important aspect in security, especially with places like banks, jewellery shops and the like. Nowadays even small hotels and bakeries use surveillance systems to protect their properties. Currently...

Electromagnetic Compatibility: Multi-Layer PCB Designing (Part 2 of 5)

In the first part we touched base on multi-layer PCB design. In this part we discuss more about the same. Multi-layer board and high-speed PCB design A multi-layer board is a PCB having...

Electronics in Production Machines and Robotics

The power of electronics was hardly realized before World War II. During that period and afterward, development in electronics technology took great strides. The emphasis during initial stages of development was...

How 16×2 LCDs work | Build a basic 16×2 character LCD

We come across LCD displays everywhere around us. Computers, calculators, television sets, mobile phones, digital watches use some kind of display to display the time. An LCD is an electronic display...
