From what I learned about recovering from my back pain, to aid the recovery of my wrist I need to avoid irritating it, especially the tendon and ligament. I’ve seen others using … Continue reading “3D Printed Wrist Brace”
This is the second part of a multiple part series about some hardware & software that I hacked together to monitor the AC current of our outdoor aircon unit. This part I’ll be discussing how I’ve established the hardware parts selection for this project, which are SCT013 Current Sensor, SAR ADC, thermistor, Gertduino, and Raspberry … Continue reading “Aircon Monitor Part 2 – The hardware – current sensor, ADC, thermistor & Arduino”
This is the first part of a multi-part series about some hardware & software that I hacked together to monitor the AC current of our outdoor inverter aircon unit, which is reporting an overcurrent error. Part 1 – The introduction – Why, what & how (you’re reading this) Part 2 – The hardware – current … Continue reading “Aircon Monitor – Part 1 – The introduction”
Today I needed to test a new PCB design for a load cell module. In order to evaluate the load response of the excitation circuit, I have to find a way to control the load current while observing the excitation voltage. The load curent needed is less than 20mA. A quick search online and I … Continue reading “Simple programmable load with gain”
I’ve been avoiding Samsung’s smartphone ever since my S3 (I9300), mainly because I felt cheated paying a premium for a cheap product. I believe most people would have heard of the famous crack screen on Note(s), crack frames and the eMMC hardware bug. I’m the victim of the latter 2 issues within 6 months of my purchase
While waiting for a proper Raspberry Pi case from element14 (formerly known as Farnell), I stumble across a site where the author designed a paper case for his Pi and kindly shared it to the world. I gave it a try today, and easily done it in less than 30 minutes. The design is well … Continue reading “DIY Case for Raspberry Pi”
