Making PCBs How to make really really good homemade PCBs Note - this article is original material. There is currently a plagiarised copy of it on the site of an Indian electronics magazine credited to a rip-off artist called Indrani Bose. This page is a guide to producing consistently high quality PCBs quickly and efficiently, particularly for professional prototyping of production boards. With the methods described, you can produce repeatably good single and double-sided PCBs for through-hole and surface mount designs with track densities of 40-50 tracks per inch and 0.5mm SMD pitches. This information has been condensed from over 20 years' experience of making PCBs, mostly as prototypes of boards to be put into production. I will only consider photographic methods in depth - other methods such as transfers, plotting on copper and the various 'iron-on' toner transfer systems are not really suited for fast, repeatable use.

Hijack Introduction HiJack is a hardware/software platform for creating cubic-inch sensor peripherals for the mobile phone. HiJack devices harvest power and use bandwidth from the mobile phone's headset interface. The HiJack platform enables a new class of small and cheap phone-centric sensor peripherals that support plug-and-play operation. Model: TES52959P hijack project The Hijack kit includes: Hijack mainboard Hijack programmer HiJack ProtoBoard Grove-Universal 4 Pin cable X5 Bug Tracker Because of the connector we used in last batch can not be found in market, we have transferred to the original hijack version, which we found a fatal bug in the connector. How does Hijack works Power. Download the firmware The Hijack is shipped with a firmware downloaded into it's MCU. 1. 3. If you see the "xxxx bytes programmed" message, the firmware download is OK.

MacSpice 3f5 - Circuit Simulator for Mac OS X Quasar Electronic Kit Module Project UK: Industrial Educational Hobby Punnet - a print at home cardboard case Ok, I hope I'm replying to the right people with the right replies... Nb8k & kieranajp - Thanks and noted. paddy2k - Nice idea - I like the Selotpe thought. Steep - I did toy with that idea, but thought it might be a bit hard to cut out. johncoles - Mod away! natstott - Thanks, and yes once the measurements are nailed down for the standard PDF version I'll release it as a SVG as well for easier modding. surpher - Thanks for the useful paintover. captainwebb - I personally prefer the outside plain, but as quite a few people have made similar requests I will put the labels on the outside on the next version. Thanks to Andrew K who has put up a PDF based on Punnet, using measurements from a real Pi, I can now use that to make any adjustments. I've just had a book arrive from Amazon, and the standard cardboard packet they use looks just the right sort of size and thickness for perhaps making a tough version of the Punnet.

Corporation - Microcontrollers, 32-bit, and touch solutions Graphene supercapacitors are 20 times as powerful, can be made with a DVD burner A team of international researchers have created graphene supercapacitors using a LightScribe DVD burner. These capacitors are both highly flexible (pictured below) and have energy and power densities far beyond existing electrochemical capacitors, possibly within reach of conventional lithium-ion and nickel metal hydride batteries. The team, which was led by Richard Kaner of UCLA, started by smearing graphite oxide — a cheap and very easily produced material — films on blank DVDs. These discs are then placed in a LightScribe drive (a consumer-oriented piece of gear that costs less than $50), where a 780nm infrared laser reduces the graphite oxide to pure graphene. The laser-scribed graphene (LSG) is peeled off and placed on a flexible substrate, and then cut into slices to become the electrodes. These graphene supercapacitors could really change the technology landscape. Read more at Science (paywalled) [Image credit]
