Hi James, What equipment / techniques might you use to assess the health of audio frequency inductive loop system (AFILS) copper tapes ? https://www.ampetronic.co/products/flat-copper-tape/ When installed they are usually fairly low resistance at 0.1 to 10 ohms, otherwise the amplifiers they connect to stop operating. As they tend to…

Life in Norway from my perspective: There is good and bad in Norway, as in all places. The Norwegian values and perspective on life in general are more in line with my own than anywhere i have lived, so that is very good for me. A lot of nice people, but also a few crazy ones as well. In my opinion, Norway is an exceedingly beautiful country…
Capacitor Replacement on a Commodore 64 - A Lesson in Through-Hole Soldering WorkBench Wednesdays | Bald Engineer: James Lewis' VCP Profile | Project Videos In WorkBench Wednesdays , one of my mini-projects was to replace the capacitors in a Commodore 64. In the video, I only had time to replace about half of the decoupling…(Show moreShow less)
Greetings best community members in the galaxy! Took a couple of days off last week so it didn't make sense to do a journal entry. Now having been refreshed, I am ready to commence with another edition of the weekly content journal. Apologies if this runs a little longer than usual. There's a reason we're trying to do this on weekly basis! PreviewHide preview
IKEA Algot. Unfortuantely, they are discontinuing the system. I found out when I went to expand the bench. Hopefully it gets replaced with something similar. At this point, the phase out has been over a year and no announced replacement.
A good MOSFET datasheet is excellent when it contains detailed information. However, too much information might mean there is too much data to sort through. If you want to build a low-frequency switch, what is the minimum information you need to understand? As it turns out, you only need a few pieces of data from a table and to look at a couple of…(Show moreShow less)
This is the second entry in the weekly content journal that I am experimenting with. The reason for this experiment is to communicate directly with the members on what I've been working on this past week in the community, mainly Project14 and Arduino , but will also touch on any of the other areas the content team is working on in the community.PreviewHide preview
