realisation_de_circuits_imprimes [WikiElectronique] ====== Réalisation de circuits imprimés L'impression Le contraste de votre imprimante doit être réglé au maximum. La face “composants” (top) doit être imprimée en mode miroir et la face “soudures” (bottom) en mode normal. Economiser du calque/transparent Pour économiser du papier calque ou transparent vous pouvez : Imprimer le typon sur une feuille A4 normale Découper votre calque à la dimension de la carte Scotcher le calque sur la feuille A4 Imprimante jet d'encre ou laser ? Imprimante jet d'encre + Noir très opaque aux UV - Si le papier est de mauvaise qualité il aura tendance à “boire” l’encre, ce qui diminue la précision - On ne peut pas directement imprimer sur du papier calque standard - Le transparent pour imprimante jet d’encre est cher Attention aux marques des transparents : les Oxford / Agfa / Epson donnent de très bons résultats (0.15 à 0.30€ la feuille pour les Oxford), l’encre ne bave pas et tient bien. Imprimante laser (≥ 600 dpi) - Noir moins opaque Découpe du circuit imprimé

Which Board is Right for Me? For a few months after Raspberry Pi came out, the choice was pretty simple. If you wanted to talk to arbitrary electronics, your best bet was to buy an Arduino microcontroller board; if you needed the power of an ARM-based processor to run Linux, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC) was the obvious choice (that is, if you could get your hands on one. Delivery issues are mostly resolved, but last year some people waited more than six months for their Pi). Before Arduino and Raspberry Pi, things were more complicated. Going forward, things aren’t just complicated again — they’re bewildering. If you’re old enough to remember the wide range of personal computers that sprung up in the early years of that industry — each with a different manufacturer, each based around a different CPU — then the state of the modern microcontroller board market may seem familiar. Life Before Arduino Still available off-the-shelf today at less than $2 a chip, the PIC is a workhorse. The March of Arduino

How To Make Your Own Sugru Substitute pic2 shows a 2"x2"x2" solid silicone cube that cured enough in two hours to be removed from its plastic box form. For years I have been looking for an inexpensive way to create a flexible skin covering for robots and electronic circuits. I have tried several kinds of casting urethane rubber and silicone rubber. I and many others have tried using the inexpensive silicone caulk that is readily available from hardware stores. So I wanted to add a catalyst that would help the silicone to cure from the inside out rather than just from the outside in. As I understand it, 100% silicone caulk works by the moisture in the air initiating the polymerization of the silicone. I experimented with quite a few additives to try and introduce some moisture into the uncured silicone. It turns out that corn starch is highly absorbent and when sitting around in an open box it will absorb moisture from the air. So that's it.

Raspberry Pi VS Arduino VS BeagleBoard VS PandaBoard VS Others. Raspberry Pi VS Arduino VS BeagleBoard VS PandaBoard VS Other Mini Computers. Find Out Which One Is Best For You : There Was A Time, When the Computers were as big as ROOMS or HALLS, and used to run on Vacuum Tubes (ENIAC) , but in today's time, it is hard to even find a good sized desktop, the microprocessors really did changed our world. So the new trend is One Board Computers, Designed for true portable computing, these device are the new choice for developers, you can found them in microwaves, toaster, Remotes and in some bathrooms of Dubai's hotels. So Lets Review all of them. Arduino : Well this Silicon Board started the era of One-Board Computers, Designed by Massimo Banzi, This board had everything a developer would want, Including a weak but Capable Processor, attachable shields (Gadgets) and much more. This device is great for Programmers/developers specially if you are into open source hardware . RaspBerry Pi : PandaBoard : BeagleBoard : Cotton Candy :

The Electronic Components and Semiconductor Superstore 5 ways to help our disappearing bees In the spring and summer, thoughts naturally turn to the birds and the bees. Except, the bee seems to be in trouble. You've probably heard about colony collapse disorder (CCD) or vanishing bee syndrome, the mysterious and rather dramatic die-off of domesticated honeybees in Europe and North America. Scientists aren't really sure what's going on yet. All that's known for sure is our bee colonies are suddenly disappearing. In some areas, losses of honeybees are reported to be as high as 75 percent. So what could be happening here? Few of us are research scientists capable of chipping in some lab time to help out, but there are some things we can all do to assist honeybee and natural bee populations close to home. Plant things that bees like Bees particularly like clover. Bees are all about pollen. The good news here is that bee-friendly plants are easy to grow. Clover is a great choice. Flowering trees are also attractive to bees. Provide bee habitat Eliminate garden pesticides

How to Choose the Right Platform: Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black? This article was originally posted at Michael Leonard’s blog and has been re-posted here. There are already many articles out there comparing Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black; this is not one of those articles. I believe it is clear that Arduino is in a different league than the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black, and serves an entirely different purpose. What I was looking for and couldn’t find was a comprehensive article that would summarize all of the pros and cons of the Raspberry Pi and the BeagleBone Black, and what each platform is best suited for. I begin this comparison by giving a short introduction to each platform and then we will take an in-depth look at the two platforms side-by-side to determine which one is best for each category.
