Class AB Audio Amplifier | HACK A WEEK This week we’ll take a look at another type of audio amplifier, the class AB amp. As we saw in Hack #19 the class A amp has a transistor that is biased with a voltage that makes it essentially stay turned on all the time. This single transistor handles the entire waveform both positive and negative. The class B amplifier uses two transistors. One handles the positive side of the waveform and the other handles the negative side of the waveform. This project is fairly easy to build and all the parts are readily available. Keep on hackin! Parts list: 2 – 2N3904 NPN transistors 1 – 2N3906 PNP transistor 1 – 47 uF electrolytic capacitor 1 – 470 uF electrolytic capacitor 1 – 100K ohm resistor 1 – 1K ohm resistor 2 – 1N4148 diodes Schematic:

"Algorithm" is Not a Four-Letter Word step | run | reset | Rosetta Code C language - Simultaneous button push & Switch Like the example you provided of 157 where it's sent as '1' '5' and '7' is there a way to put all three of those in one element? Yes and no. If by one element, you mean something like an int, then, no, not directly. If by one element, you mean an array of chars, then, yes. We need to go back to your original question. I am trying to read inputs from Where is this data coming from, and what triggers that source to send data? Serial data transmission is asynchronous. It also means that the sender needs to present the data in a way that the receiver can tell how to deal with the data it receives. If the sender is going to send 4 values, 157, 213, 101, and 89, as characters, and includes no separators, the data stream will look like this: "15721310189". Given a stream like that, it is impossible to reconstruct the data from the sender. If the data is sent like "157;213;101;89;" instead, then the receiver has a hope of reconstructing the data.

Tutorial - Learn Python in 10 minutes | Stavros' Stuff NOTE: If you would like some Python development done, my company, Stochastic Technologies, is available for consulting. This tutorial is available as a short ebook. The e-book features extra content from follow-up posts on various Python best practices, all in a convenient, self-contained format. All future updates are free for people who purchase it. Preliminary fluff So, you want to learn the Python programming language but can't find a concise and yet full-featured tutorial. Properties Python is strongly typed (i.e. types are enforced), dynamically, implicitly typed (i.e. you don't have to declare variables), case sensitive (i.e. var and VAR are two different variables) and object-oriented (i.e. everything is an object). Getting help Help in Python is always available right in the interpreter. >>> help(5)Help on int object:(etc etc) >>> dir(5)['__abs__', '__add__', ...] >>> abs. Syntax Python has no mandatory statement termination characters and blocks are specified by indentation. Strings
