The 555 is one of the most popular integrated circuits ever created, with over a billion of them produced every year. In many cases, the 555 is a simpler and better choice than using a microcontroller.
Today we will learn how the 555 works, and then we will build five simple projects using a 555 timer.
A Bench Power Supply is an essential component for any serious electronics experimenter. But a good supply with multiple output voltages and a high current capability can set you back some serious cash
In this article we’ll look at an alternative – using an old computer ATX power supply as a high-performance workbench power supply.
It’s a simple project that can give you a highly capable piece of equipment for next to nothing
The WiFi Stepper is exactly what its name would imply – a board that lets you control a stepper motor via WiFi. Its full-featured web-based interface gives you complete control of your motor, and it can support steppers of all sizes up to 85 volts at 10 amps!
Today I’ll demonstrate how to use this versatile board. I’ll hook it up, learn how to use it and even run a simple Bash script on a Raspberry Pi to demonstrate how to incorporate it in your programs.
