Hello e14! I wanted to let everyone know about a feature which, I'm embarrassed to say, I didn't realize existed until our team meeting this morning. You can embed Tweets in your content, or in comments you're leaving! Possibly all of you are going to be like: "Dan, we've known this since forever." But I figured a reminder wouldn't hurt! Also, I don't think I've ever seen the feature used in the wild on e14, so maybe there is a lack of awareness? Dudley wrote up a helpful how-to on this, so che ...

Being a Water pig myself, I'm allegedly "responsible, serious and full of ideas, listen and communicate well" ...

element14 at CES 2019!

Posted by danzima element14 Team Jan 16, 2019
  CES 2019! If you go by their numbers, the 2018 edition was attended by over 180,000 people, 70,000 of those being exhibitors, with more than 4,500 companies exhibiting, yadda yadda yadda. It's massive! At one point I naively thought I'd hop on a quick shuttle to another hotel to see some pro audio gear, and after a few minutes of trying to find where the line for that shuttle actually began I just decided to wander into a different hall. But what made CES 2019 especially great?? We were ...

Produced as a line of products by Avnet there are currently six electronic development boards in the Zedboard range:   ZedBoard     MicroZed &# ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
