Linear power supply rectifier designer

LINEAR POWER SUPPLY DESIGN ASSISTANT #1 at https://www.changpuak.ch/electronics/power_supply_design.php is a tool for designing and simulating linear power supply rectification and smoothing capacitors See the circuit diagram. Enter the design data and can see the output voltage ripple and current on circuit. You can try with different capacitor values, different loads and different transformers. This is

sigrok logic analyzer software

I have testes several logic analyzers (both commercial and DIY)  and software for them. I would like to see on this Open Source world is some kind of common format logic analyzer data presentation and maybe common API for accessing the information. In this way it would be easy to write all kinds of applications

KiCad video series: from concept to manufacture

Many electronics hackers have habit of using Eagle to design their PCBs. You’ll find plenty of support for this software as well as a lot of parts libraries, the free version of Eagle software comes with limitations (board area is limited to 4×3.2 inches, only two signal layers and the schematics editor can only create

PCB design tips

Here are some tips for circuit board design: Design in Package Flexibility into Your Next PCB tells that to err is human: to order the wrong component foot print is just part of engineering – it happens to us all who work with hardware. David Cook has a solution that could save your bacon. He

Circuit design software list

What is the best free or cheap electronics design software? It is hard to say in this ever changing field. I some time ago mentioned some software examples in Top Free Electronics Design Tools posting and you can find a long comparison list at Wikipedia Comparison of EDA software page. For the circuit design I would

RF Calculators & Conversions

Do you need to do RF Calculators & Conversions? Pasternack just published new RF calculators and conversion on-line tools to pasternack.com. Pasternack’s RF/Microwave calculators and conversions section provides easy-to-use tools ranging from complex mathematical formulas to simple conversions. Besides just making the calculations those tools also show the equations used to make the calculations (so
