The Ben Heck Team ask how we could inspire STEM learning We're Giving Away Two Ben Heck Hex Game Prototypes!   My idea was for a Fizz Buzz Game. It has a couple of big buttons for Fizz and Buzz and a small screen.  The game counts up and you have to press the buttons before the next number is displayed. To run the game I've a couple of big buttons and an LCD left over from a previous project. I've also bought an AdaFruit Trinket M0 to control everything which I'm planning to code u ...
Hello everyone!   For you that don't know, I help head up the Design Challenges team here at element14 and we are always looking to get community input on how to improve our programs.   If you have not heard of our Design Challenges, they are11 week long build challenges where applicants submit a project idea to a panel of judges. The best 15 are sent the official challengers build kit and spend the next 11 weeks building and blogging about it on the community. After the 11 weeks ...
I was approached by Tektronix about their need to obtain professional feedback on some oscilloscopes they are developing. If you are interested, you would be compensated.   Here's the type of background they are looking for:   If you have any experience in any of the following: Embedded System Design, Automotive Engineering, Engineering and/or Engineers designing power converters/systems/PMICs for Mobile and Datacenter applications.   It is my understanding that you would be gi ...

Texas Instruments in Germany   A global leader in semiconductor design and manufacturing, Texas Instruments has had a significant presence in Germany for over fifty years.

Just saw this on Kickstarter, and I have to say I quite like the idea.     It doesn't look like it's very programmable, and the modular design is pretty basic, but that's no bad thing if it gets the kids interested in the idea of building cool electronics projects.   Kind of reminds me of Big Trak, in the way you can set the individual rotors to follow set commands   Sub-$100 too, which is always a good price point for a new device aimed at kids (not literally aime ...
Okay, you guys are all pretty good with electronics, right? I mean, that's why you hang around at element14 in the first place.   Therefore, you'll all be acutely aware of the following affliction, that I un-lovingly call "Tech Support Syndrome":   Tech Support Syndromenoun /' tek səˈpɔːt sɪn.drəʊm/ when a technologically adept individual is unwittingly established as the personal, on-call, 24-hour, 365-days-a-year free tech support service for friends and family, usually against thei ...
Probably the main reason Computer Security Day (which is today) exists, is because we -- as a species -- tend more toward cure than prevention. Most of us only ever change our passwords once the last one has been discovered and put to ill use.   Naturally you've taken heed already this year, and run through the Computer Security Day checklist to revisit your online life and update your digital door locks. But was it always thus?   We've probably all fallen foul of hackers, viruses, m ...
Although this is likely to overrun November 30th, we feel it's no bad thing to raise a bit of extra awareness around World Computer Security Day (CSD), and we've created a badge for all those who are into the idea of locking down their online lives nice and securely. To get the badge, follow these simple rules: Update your element14 password. Update your avatar with our CSD 2016 icon on the right (maybe overlay on your existing avatar for a few days? That's what I'm doing). Post a blog abou ...
It's November 30th, which means it's A) Just under one month until New Year's Eve, and B) It's World Computer Security Day (CSD)!   You can find out a little more about the origins of the day itself over here, and tell us about your best practices when it comes to securing your digital life.   Beyond Computer Security This is a long-lived awareness campaign already, but it's changing as fast as the computers it's based around.   CSD is a concept that increases in magnitude somew ...
There are multiple reasons to celebrate World Computer Security Day (CSD). We'll get to the primary reasons in a minute, but the other thing that's nice about it is there aren't any greeting cards associated with it. Not yet, anyway.   So, what's today's rather nebulous-sounding pseudo celebration all about? Read on.   World Computer Security Day As woolly as it might initially sound, this is actually a great idea. The purpose behind it is simple; to raise awareness of cyber security, ...
