Your computer leaks secret information

This is somewhat worrying development as Wired writes that Researchers develop palm-sized device, built for less than $300, that can steal laptop crypto keys using radio waves leaked by its processor. This Radio Bug Can Steal Laptop Crypto Keys, Fits Inside a Pita article tells that the list of paranoia-inducing threats to your computer’s security

Impractical energy products flood

Crowdfunding campaigns or wide product announcements that do not make sense pops up every now and then. It seems that energy related “inventions” seems to be getting easily into the spotlight without proven merits: Hackaday article Crowdfunding Follies: Proof That Ohm’s Law Is Arcane Knowledge tells about a special cell phone case Kickstarter (Nikola Phone

AD9850 scalar network analyzer

A network analyzer is an instrument that measures the network parameters of electrical networks. Today, network analyzers commonly measure s–parameters. Full featured network analyzers are expensive instruments, and sometimes a simpler. Scalar Network Analyzer (SNA) is a simpler form of RF network analyzer that only measures the amplitude properties of the device under test.  SNA is

Diode detector for RF

Here is a simple diode detector for RF signals. I can feed RF signal from left and get DC output from right. The DC output can be fed to Arduino analog in. The diode in the circuit is germanium diode for low voltage drop. The circuit works well for fractions of volts to several volts
